  • When all you've got are broken dreams
    Just need a second chance
    And everything you want to be
    Gets taken from your hands

    We hold on to each other
    All we have is all we need
    'Cause one way or another
    We always make it, you and me

    This life can almost kill you
    When you're trying to survive
    It's good to be here with you

    It's good to be alive
    It's good to be alive
    I was lost and I was gone
    I was almost dead inside
    You and me against the world
    It's a beautiful night
    It's good to be alive (It's good to be alive)
    (It's good to be alive) It's good to be alive
    (It's good to be alive) (It's good to be alive)

    Driving down this highway
    Soaking up the sun
    Got miles to go before we get home
    And the journey's just begun

    We hold on to each other
    You are everything I need
    You feel like forever
    You're a second chance for me

    This life can almost kill you
    When you're trying to survive
    It's good to be here with you
    It's good to be alive
    It's good to be alive
    I was lost and I was gone
    I was almost dead inside
    You and me against the world
    It's a beautiful night
    It's good to be alive

    It's a beautiful night
    Its all right
    It's good to be alive

    This life can almost kill you
    When you're trying to survive
    It's good to be alive (It's good to be alive)
    (It's good to be alive) It's good to be alive
    (It's good to be alive) (It's good to be alive)

    And is good to be alive
    its good to be alive
    I was lost and I was gone
    I was almost dead inside
    You and me against the world
    It's a beautiful night
    It's good to be alive

    It's a beautiful night
    Yeah, its all right
    It's good to be alive Writer/s: JOHN COOPER, TOM DOUGLAS, ZAC MALOY
