"Alive" as written by Dennis Joseph Matkosky, Jess Clayton Cates and Aaron Jeoffrey Benward....
Stuck in a world, no longer turning
Always the girl, waiting for something
Too many days, walking around sleeping
Open my eyes, I'm tired of dreaming

I want to run with a reckless emotion
Find out if love is the size of an ocean
Even if I crash down and burn out
At least I'm gonna know what it's like
To feel alive

Hey yeah, hey yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Sun on my face, lights of the city
Maybe in love, or just learning to be
On my two feet, I can only imagine
I'll say the words and believe it'll happen

I want to run with a reckless emotion
Find out if love is the size of an ocean
Even if I crash down and burn out
At least I'm gonna know what it's like
To feel alive

They think they know me
But how can they know me
I'm getting to know myself
I'm finally ready to be somebody
With a story to tell

I want to run with a reckless emotion
Find out if love is the size of an ocean
Even if I crash down and burn out
At least I'm gonna know what it's like

I want to feel til my heart rips right open
I want to blaze like a fire that's growing
Even if I crash down and burn out
At lease I'm gonna know what it's like
To feel alive

Oh, I feel alive

    General CommentI think she's saying that she's
    tired of sitting around wishing
    that someday, her prince charming
    would find her and sweep her off
    her feet.

    She's ready to explore, do something
    she's never done before, explore,
    find him before it's too late.

    And more than anything, she wants
    to feel alive, like she's actually
    pushing beyond the limits.

    And even if everything fails in
    the end, at least she will know
    that she had the courage to
    do something for herself.

    I honestly believe that every
    girl feels this way at some
    point in their lives.
