"Die Alive" as written by Anders Wilhelm Wollbeck, Hanne Soervaag, Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen and Mattias Lindblom....
Open up the night
Led by just a feeling
All around is light
Everything is healing

No more fate and no more mystery
Even as time falls away, I live my days
Every moment and its memory
Not only to survive to die alive

Overwhelming love
Heaven's just a feeling
Singing in my blood
Keeping me from kneeling

No more fate and no more mystery
Even as time falls away, I live my days
Every moment and its memory
Not only to survive to die alive

Die alive

No more fate and no more mystery
Even as time falls away, I live my days
Every moment and its memory
Not only to survive to die alive

Die alive
Die alive

    General CommentThis song is about living life to the full

    "I live my days
    every moment and its memory,
    not only to survive: to die alive."

    "To die alive" means she wants to feel alive i.e. lived life to the full, when she dies.

    General CommentI think this song is best when stressed, cos it's just such a good song to sing at the top of your voice with the suspense parts and yeah... =D

    The song itself... I agree with keely but maybe she doesn't want to go down without a fight?

    General CommentTo me it seems like she is about to die and her life is flashing before her eyes.
    Open up the night.
    Led by just a feeling.
    All around is light.
    Everything is healing
    Open up the night, the night being a metaphor for the end of yoru life, the next two lines are the light at the end of the tunnel expresion, while all the pain is presumably going away, in the line Everything is healing.
    No more fate and no more mystery.
    Even as time falls away
    I live my days
    every moment and its memory,
    not only to survive: to die alive.
    The first line is that she has met her fate and there is no more mystery about death, she is indeed dieng, as everything falls away, as she departs her body so to speek she sees her life flash before her eyes, and she is remembering it.
    Overwhelming love,
    heaven's just a feeling.
    Singing in my blood
    keeping me from kneeling.
    She goes up to heaven and feels the overwhelming love of god, and its just a feeling... and the rest of the song is essentaly just repeating from this.

    General CommentI don't get this paragraph, maybe because of the lack of proper punctuation:
    Overwhelming love
    Heaven's just a feeling
    Singing in my blood
    Keeping me from kneeling

    Can someone explain it to me?
