  • Everyday is a new day
    I'm thankful for every breath I take
    I won't take it for granted
    So I learn from my mistakes
    It's beyond my control, sometimes it?s best to let go
    Whatever happens in this lifetime
    So I trust in love
    You have given me peace of mind

    [Chorus:]
    I feel so alive for the very first time
    I can't deny you
    I feel so alive
    I feel so alive for the very first time
    And I think I can fly

    Sunshine upon my face
    A new song for me to sing
    Tell the world how I feel inside
    Even though it might cost me everything
    Now that I know this, so beyond, I can't hold this
    I can never turn my back away
    Now that I've seen you
    I can never look away

    [chorus]
    [bridge:]
    Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
    Now that I see you (I could never look away)
    Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
    Now that I see you (I believe no matter what they say)

    [chorus x 2] Writer/s: PETER ANDERS SVENSSON, VICCI MARTINEZ

  • Sue55 from Northern CaThis reminds me of how I felt after becoming clean/sober. When I quit I came alive and became alive. God helped me do it and stay clean 10 years now.
  • Craigory from NowhereI legit thought it was about being high, but now I know the meaning, I find it really sweet!
  • Natalie from Lorena, TxP.O.D often has songs that can very easily be referring to the problems many teenagers may face. I love their music so much, and the reasons behind their work. They have helped in so much charity work, and have voiced their true opinions through their music. I listen to the song and think of how we do things everyday that make us alive. We don't have to go out to do dangerous stuff just to feel like we are here. We need to do our everyday things with passion, then see where it leads us.

  • Chipmonk from Bloomington, Mnp.o.d.=payable on death
  • Chicklet from New York, NyWas this written by Stevie Wonder?
  • Jim from San Diego, CaBought this CD while on a trip to Chicago just days after 9/11. The whole album, but this song especially, gave me a great spiritual lift considering what had happened on 9/11. Every time I hear this song it reminds me of driving in a rental car in the dark along Lake Michigan.
  • James from Arley, AlI think this is how P.O.D. praises God. We all have our own ways of doing it. It is a great Christian theme for life. It is a way to talk to God. Oh Matt from TX, as soon as I get some Project 86 news I'll post it.
  • Snowman from St. Louis, MoIt wasn't actually released on 9/11it was scheduled to be but it was delayed (take a guess why)
  • Sara from Quinton, OkThis is a great great song. I had forgotten about the album being released on 9-11. This song is outstanding, and the video is very cool, with the kid walking away from a car wreck. This is my theme song for my senior year, "I feel so alive for the very first time and I can't deny You, I feel so alive." P.O.D. friggin rocks.
  • Mistik from Sydney, AustraliaYeha this song was good, i remeber hearing it the fist time it came and and i thought hey, this song is awesome. and the other song that goes "we are we are, we are the youth of the nation" its real uplifting this song.
  • Shaun from Shelbyville, KyThe best thing about all of P.O.D.'s Lyrics is they are for everyone, you don't need to have to be religious at all to derive meaning from it. Alive is a love song, that can be used for anyone, not just about God.
  • Matt from Mesquite, TxWill somebody please post information on Project 86
  • Chad from Arvada, Cothe sun shines upon my face, and gives me something for me to see....means.. there is a concrete truth in the bands belief in god.
    shows the world how i feel inside, even though it might cost me everythin... means.. that there is no shame in their faith and the fact that people know about their beliefs, might bring them redicule do to discrimination against god... thats what the song means to me.
  • Tim from Pittsburgh, PaThis is the song that got me into P.O.D.
  • Jolie from Bellwood, IlThis song is a great song, it's upbeat. It makes you feel alive.
  • Joe from Lawrenceville, GaThis is a great song! It single handedly got me into rock and metal music!
