  • If I don't see tomorrow
    What would be left to say
    So many precious moments
    Got lost along the way

    If love is all that matters
    It's all we leave behind
    Hold on to each other
    While we still have time

    And even though its raining
    My heart is safe and dry
    I can feel it rushing through me
    It's the miracle of life
    Ain't it good to be alive
    (It's good to be alive)
    Alive

    I wanna see the sun rise
    I wanna feel the storm
    I wanna wrap myself around life
    Like a baby being born

    Cause love is all that matters
    It's all we leave behind
    Hold on to each other
    And pray for time

    And even though its raining
    My heart is safe and dry
    I can feel it rushing through me
    It's the miracle of life
    Ain't it good to be alive

    (I'm holding a picture)
    Of the one's I love
    (Receiving a message)
    From heaven above
    (Telling me that I've got time)
    To cherish it all
    Be strong
    Hold on

    So good
    Ain't it good to be alive
    So good
    Ain't it good to be
    Good to be alive

    Even though its raining
    My heart is safe and dry
    I can feel it rushing through me
    It's the miracle of life
    Ain't it good to be alive
    Even though its raining

    I can feel it rushing through me
    It's the miracle of life
    Ain't it good to be alive

    (To be alive, so good)
    Oh alive
    (So good, to be alive)
    (To be alive...so good)
    Oh alive
    (So good, to be alive)
    Ain't it good to be alive

    Alive, alive, alive

    If I don't see tomorrow
