Oh, if you had been there to see
The scare you gave me
When the news about you reached me that day
And after the call
How time seemed stall
And sorry and grief came to weigh
On my heart
Ooh on my heart

Oh, you can't imagine the fuss
The panic you caused us
When it seemed that our luck was all done
So we tried to take heart
As our world fell apart
And all this time you were the one
Who was strong
You were strong

Did our grandmothers know
When they played as little girls
Of the strange sad way we would be bound?
Did our grandmothers know
When they prayed about the world
That their faith and their love would be the ground
For us?

Oh, you'll never know just how proud
We were when you vowed
To act bravely and never to lose
And how you commit
To win and not quit
And the beautiful way that you choose to survive
And the way that you don't just mend but you thrive
And the way that you bind us and always remind us
To be grateful because in the end we're alive
We're alive

Did our grandmothers know
When they played as little girls
Of the strange sad way we would be bound?
Did our grandmothers know
When they prayed about the world
That their faith and their love would be the ground
For us?

We're alive
We're alive
We're alive
We're alive

My friend, we're alive
My friend, we're alive
My friend, we're alive
My friend, we're alive
