"Alive" as written by and Craig Ashley/kirkland Calloway....
The night has come again,
And still, I am alone-
This time more than ever.
A feeling I had never felt before
And I don't want to remember.
It's taking hold of me now
You drove in town to see me,
But you turned into a messenger
One with news I never thought would hit my ears.
It's now numbing me inside
Numbing me from this life and I,
Want so badly to disappear.

Maybe someday I can stand again.
Maybe soon, I can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
But I need you now to mend my heart
Because you're the only one that can keep me alive tonight. (tonight x5)

You're everything to me:
My whole world, entire being,
The one thing I hold true in my life.
What made you do this to me?
Did you want me to set you free?
It tears me up inside, every night.

Maybe someday I can stand again.
Maybe soon, I can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
But I need you now to mend my heart
Because you're the only one who can keep me alive tonight.

And everything will be just fine.
(I just wanted to be perfect, I just wanted to be perfect)
And everything will be just fine.
(I just wanted to be perfect, I just wanted to be perfect)

Maybe someday I can stand again. (and everything will be just fine)
Maybe soon, I can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
But I need you now to mend my heart (and everything will be just fine)
Because you're the only one that can keep me alive tonight.

    General CommentI think it expresses how you feel after a break up. You feel like your life is over and that the most important thing in your life is gone. I listened to this song everyday when i had this problem with a girl (i like her (still do) but she has a bf and she'll never go out with me)
