"Live Like We're Alive" as written by Armon J. Cheek, Joshua Scott Pearson and Kevin Kadish....
They say we can't make it through
Too young don't know what to do
This life is much too hard for you and me
They say we're living in our dreams
Black white nothing in between
This world is never as it seems to be

But
They don't want this
They don't feel this
But
This was never theirs at all

So here, I stand, I'm ready for anything
Just, a man, but I'm giving everything
We're here only for a second and then
We're gone when we least expect it
So do more than survive
Let's live like we're alive

They say stay inside the lines
We've drawn and you'll be just fine
Don't take chances with your life
C'mon

But
They don't want this
They don't feel this
But
This was never theirs at all

So here, I stand, I'm ready for anything
Just, a man, but I'm giving everything
We're here only for a second and then
We're gone when we least expect it
So do more than survive
Let's live like we're alive

    General CommentThis song..... . . . . . .let me think.... . . . I like it . . . ... it captures the typical teenage mindset [or at least my mind set] ... you're in love. Want to get away and live your life but others say you'll never make it.

    I think its refering to the previous generations [our parents] not understanding what the youths of today think and feel.

    It's about moving on and starting a new life of your own, by standing outside the the guidelines boundries we are suppressed to.

    "We live Only For a Second And Then We're Gone When We Least Expect it" ... great line... I like this song... good stuff... .. . . . . . . .

    General CommentI think this song is speaking of walking in faith. That people want us to do things of the world, because it is logical, but they are not living by the word of God. He is saying that he is ready to give himself to God. Within the last lines, he is saying, you never know when it's your time to go. Live your life for God, because in an instant you can be taken out of this world.

    General Comment[Music Faith] Could you tell me a little about the title track as well?
    [Josh Pearson] Yup, �Live like we�re Alive,� actually we wrote that song, for us, that song was about being in a band. Y�know when your in a band it takes a lot of opposition, sometimes people don�t believe in you and they doubt you, and it gets hard, financially and emotionally, traveling all the time. When you know that God wants you to do something you have to do it with all your might and all your power. So that�s why the chorus says �Here I stand, I�m read for anything, I�m just a man, but I�m giving everything. � That�s what we�re called to do everyday, to give everything we have. To do what God calls us to do.
