"So Alive" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Today I watched the boats
Moving through the harbor
Walking on water
In your arms I'd stay
Forever if I could
Forever if I may
Keep me in your thoughts, don't disappear

I am on your side
And so alive
So alive it isn't real

If this is how I feel
Then nothing now is true
And nothing now can ever be taken away from you
Sinking in the past
The things that shouldn't last
Just put to bed and stand beside me
Stand beside me
Always on your side
I'm on your side
And so alive it isn't real

I am on your side
And so alive
And so alive
And so alive
I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side
And so alive
So alive

    General CommentIf 'Rock N Roll' is a tribute to Ryan's favorite Rock artists, then this is most definitely his U2 track. The guitar work, the soaring vocals, even the lyrics to a certain extent. Very Bono and Edge. It gives me the same feeling of flying into a blue sky that 'Where the Streets Have No Name' does.

    General CommentRock n Roll is an amazing album, and So Alive is my fave song from it. Simple but so upbeat and so effective. I'll never get tired of hearing it!

    General CommentIf I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, this would be it. There is no better song to sing at the top of your lungs to in your car. I feel "so alive", when I listen to this song. :-)

    General Commentwhen it builds up to the end i can imagine myself doing something really amazing with somebody i love the most like skydiving somewhere special in a beautiful place in the sunset and this to be playing in the background, or for if there was a soundtrack to the film of my life then this would be playing as i did the above. it's not going to happen though, it's impossible to sky dive to anything unless you are actually in a film.

    General CommentForever if I could
    Forever if I may

    the way he says this is how i could commit murder.
    if someone spoke directly to me like how he says those two lines i would do anything they asked.

    beautiful song.
