"Still Alive" as written by Lauri Markkula, Antti Aatamila, Janne Heimonen, Jonne Liimatainen and Christian Mikkonen....
These are those days, when I can get no sleep
I'm so tired I'd like to fall into sleep
I fall in my bed
But still I'm awake
These questions in my mind are so much bigger than life
When my life is sold I have to leave them behind
I have to try to forget
That I am still in my bed
In my deepest fears I'm losing you
Even if somebody tried to stop my heart
I'm still alive I will never give up
CHORUS:
Just turn off the lights
Don't want to see me die
I look like I'm dead
But when you look at me
I am still alive
Just open your eyes
Don't want to see me cry
I'm right here where you want be to be
Fighting with myself
All I need to feel is your breath on my skin
This endless longing between you and me
We can't give up now
We're gonna make it somehow
In my sweetest dreams I'm with you
Even if somebody tried to stop my heart
I'm still alive I will never give up
[CHORUS]
Just open your eyes
Don't want to see me cry
I'm right here where you want me to be
fighting with myself, with myself
[CHOURS]
Won't you open your eyes
Don't want to see me cry
I'm right here where you want me to be
fighting with myself
I'm right here where you want me to be
fighting with myself
I'm right here where you want me to be
fighting with myself, with myself.
Ooh, I look like I'm dead
but when you look at me
I'm still alive

    General Commenti don't really know that much about jonne (he has written this song and also sings it), but in a way i can identify myself with the lyrics.
    i think it's about feeling tired and being sick of living, but there is still a person who makes you carry on.

    >in my deepest fears i'm losing you<
    >in my sweetest dreams i'm with you<
    "you" is kind of the sun of your little world. it's the only things that makes your life worth living.

    >i look like i'm dead but when you look at me i am still alive<
    i have two interpretations for this: 1. when you look someone in the eyes, you have to be with this person, you are sharing some time. so being watched by "you" may is a proof of being together and i think that's kind of the most important thing, if "you" keeps you from commiting suicide. 2. you feel like your already dead, because there is just this little something ("you") that "saves" you and maybe you think that everyone can see that. so you want the "you"-person to look at you (at your heart and soul) and see, that you are still alive.

    >just turn off the lights don't wanna see me die<
    >won't you open your eyes don't wanna see me cry i'm right here where you want me to be fighting with myself<
    i think this goes with a little bit of anger. "you" may doesn't want to see that you're dying (or you just think that it's like that), but you're not sure about it, because >you want me to be fighting with myself< shows that "you" wants you to fight against the part of you that wants to die. if that's true, "you" sees that you are sick and tired, but may doesn't show it very well.

    at the end i have to admit something: for me, this song is about suicide and how you are able to carry on. it's my way to identify with the song. i think that probably it's not so dramaticly meant by jonne.
