"Feelin' Alive" as written by and John Harding Michael Busbee....
Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive

My heart goes boom as the stars go blue
Like a sea of cell phone lights
The moon gets light as the sun goes down
Somewhere behind the Hollywood sign

Have you ever felt like you're livin' in the shadows
Have you ever felt kept out
I know sometimes that it feels like a battle
But it can turn around

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive

The kick drum starts as the boulevard
Filled up with all the boys and the girls
From Jersey town to the L.A. crowd
They're hearing us all over the world

Have you ever felt like standin' on a rooftop?
Have you ever wanted to scream?
Everybody dance, burn it up 'till we blast off
Just like a rocket machine

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive

'Cause we're not alone tonight
So raise up your hands and touch the sky
'Cause we're not alone tonight
Oh whoa oh whoa

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night, yeah
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive
(Feelin' alive)

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
(This is the night)
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive (feelin')

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
(Can you feel it?)
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive

Hey!
This is the night, this is the night
Hey!
Feelin' alive, feelin' alive

    General CommentI think this song can have multiple meanings, depending on the way you percieve it.

    One of the meanings, and probably the most obvious one is that this song is about a night that you've been looking forward to for quite a while. It's a night that you've had high expectations for and the night had finally arrived. "Hey, this is the night This is the night" quite obviously means that this is the night they had been waiting for and they are going to make the best out of it.

    The other and deeper meaning I believe this is song has is that the song is about having a rough day or time period in your life. However, one day occurs that makes you forget about all the indecenies that have occured lately, and having an amazing night without all the bad occurences. "Cause we're not alone tonight. So raise up your hands and touch the sky" means that you realize that you're not the only one feeling the way that you did and there are people who are less unfortunate than you are and to "raise up your hands and touch the sky" and go out and live life.

    My InterpretationI think that on the face of it, this song is about having a good time.
    "Everybody dance, burn it up till we blast off. Just like a rocket machine, yeah."

    However, it does seem to have more meaning to it than that, as shown with a few of the lyrics that run through it. It's saying that you aren't alone "Cause we're not alone tonight, so raise up your hands and touch the sky", and to keep on living - to keep on feeling alive - 'cause even when it seems like everything is lost, or terrible, things can get better "I know sometimes that it feels like a battle, but it can turn around".

    Also, my personal favourite lyric from this song...
    "Have you ever felt like standing on a rooftop?
    Have you ever you ever wanted to scream?" ♥
