"I'm Alive" as written by and Victor Jasper....
I'm alive when I'm missing you

I'm heading out for the lone star state
And flying over Santa Fe
I'm looking out at a mountain range
I brace myself for the life I made
We're too young at heart, hoping for one more day

This airport terminal can't see
Everything you mean to me

I'm alive when I'm missing you
I'm alive but too far
I'm alive when I'm missing you
I'm alive but too far from your room

I remember I'm not sleeping
Hold on tight, come with me
I left my heart on your bed sheets
Not knowing what it means to be here
On a plane leaving you

This airport terminal can't see
Everywhere I wish, you'd be

I'm alive when I'm missing you
I'm alive but too far
I'm alive when I'm missing you
I'm alive but too far from your room

Girl, you can't make me stay
I'm saying what I have to say
Know you were just a phase
A piece of who I am today

Just another check mark
On my list of things that I regret
You're another check mark
On my list of things that I regret

I'm alive when I'm missing you
I'm alive but not missing you
I'm alive and I sleep fine
I'm alive but not missing you
I'm alive and I sleep fine in my own room

    General CommentI think it has something to do with always being on the road as a musician on tour and how hard it is to leave the one you love.

    This is one of my favorite songs from the new album. (I have all the songs btw.)

    General Commenti didn't catch the change in the chorus until my third or so listen ot this song.

    i think it's just about young "love." how at first he's off travelling (possibly since he's a musician, or whatever future it is that required him to travel away). so at first he thinks he's in love and will keep holding onto the girl,
    but then time and distance makes him realize that it wasn't that serious, and is overrr it.

    General CommentI agree with the Avalanche1 and m0nique. It's about being away from someone you love for a long time and missing them, but slowly getting over them and realizing that you don't need them to feel alive.

    General CommentI think it's about sleeping with someone and thinking that you'll be together forever and then as you grow up, realizing that sleeping with them was a mistake and that you have go separate ways sometimes. He loved her, but now he's moved on.
