"Alive" as written by Mike Roth, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine....
It's new year's eve and you know who you love
You can call him all night but he won't pick up
And I danced in the snow and I sang to the stars
'cause we lost our power just to find our hearts
You gotta lose your power to find your heart

And we're alive
And we are fearless
And we're alive
And we are fearless
and we are here...

I drove all night with a car full of friends
And someone in the back said, "Where does Canada end?"
And my mother took a plane in her nineteenth year
To someone else's dream, that's why I'm here
To someone else's dream, that's why we're here

And we're alive
And we are fearless
And we're alive
And we are fearless
and we are here...

All the things you ever had
Hide and seek, your mom and dad
The car, the park, your broken heart
Your brother locked out after dark
The things we lose, the things we keep
I remember Sable Beach
Now you're the song and I will sing
'cause I remember everything

I grew up on the first of July,
Just waiting for the light in a firework sky.
An the world stood still and your eyes lit up.
I will never get old 'cause I feel so young
And we will never get old when we feel this young!

And we're alive
And we are fearless
And we're alive
And we are fearless
and we are here...

Yeah, we are fearless
and we are here...

    My InterpretationMost certainly refers to Sauble Beach at the base of Ontario's Bruce Peninsula.
