"Alive" as written by and James/child Michael....
I'm still alive
Must have been a miracle
It's been a hell of ride
Destination still unknown
It's a fact of life,
If you make one wrong move with the gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead

I'm a runaway train on broken track
I'm a ticker on a bomb, you can't turn back this time
That's right
I got away with it all and I'm still alive
Let the end of the world come tumbling down
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as I got blood rush trough my veins
I'm still alive

Lost in the night
Feeling so invisible
Oh, a dead man walking the wire
I have broke the devils net
That's made of fire
And it's a long way down from the top of the world
You better look around or you gonna get burned

I'm a runaway train on broken track
I'm a ticker on a bomb, you can't turn back this time
That's right
I got away with it all and I'm still alive
Let the end of the world come tumbling down
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
And as the dust wheels look in my eyes
I'm still alive
I'm still alive

The darkest night ain't black enough
To keep the morning light from shinin'
The highest wall ain't tall enough
To keep the smallest man from climbin'

The more that you resist the tide
The more it pulls you in
The more you hang on for your life

(I'm a runaway train on broken track)
(I'm a ticker on a bomb, you can't turn back this time)
(that's right)
That's right
I got away with it all and I'm still alive

I'm a runaway train on broken track
I'm a ticker on a bomb, you can't turn back this time
That's right
I got away with it all and I'm still alive
Let the end of the world come tumbling down
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
And if my saddle is all that survives
I'm still alive
I'm still alive

    General Comment"And if my saddles all that survives,I'm Still Alvie"!

    I Love This Song! With the possible exception of "Blind As A Bat", this is my favorite song off of "The Monster Is Loose". I guess it's just about living this crazy life and just doing it. It's a good "Eye of The Tiger" type song. "The Monster Is Loose" is no where near as good as Bat Out Of Hell or the Sequel,but then again did you really think it was going to be? "Alive" is a really good song. If you didnt get the album,at least take the time to download this song,if you're a Meat Loaf Fan,it will be worth it.

    General Commenti think bat out of hell III is just as good as the other two, if not better.

    and this song needs to be listened to more, the lyrics are too good, too amazing not to be heard

    General Commentthese lyrics have mistakes, too.

    changes:

    "and as the dust clears look in my eyes, im still alive"

    "and if my shadows all that survives, im still alive"

    General CommentA few lyrical corrections: I'm quite sure it's "as long as hot blood runs through my veins" and "if my shadow's all that survives." I love this song, it's one of my all time favorites.
