for some reason poor
i felt depressed
as i talked to the guy with the hole in his chest
where his heart used to be
He's dying from the inside out
why, why?
because a youth without God is like a painting
in a world with no light
gonna live my life like i was 70 yesterday
and God let me relive all my younger days
one thing for sure this time i'm gonna do
man, i'm not gonna wait until my lifes half spent
before i give my life to You

-chorus-
just so glad to be alive
Jesus when i'm with You
every next day in the greatest day
i've ever known
with God i'm alive

i've seen God take the craziest storms
and turn them into the bluest skies.
but before he could change my world
i had to give Him and make Him my life
man i just gotta say

-chorus-

    General CommentI believe this song is probably one of the best songs on the album. To me the song is saying...no matter how bad or messed up you think things are; there is always God. And some people are questioning God during this whole 9-11 thing. But you cannot CANNOT let the troubles and sorrow around...consume you and make you doubt Gods LOVE for us. God is good all the time. I am very "glad to be alive" I cannot wait to see what God does in my life and the lives around me
