"Being Alive" as written by and Stephen Sondheim....
Somebody hold me too close
Somebody hurt me too deep
Somebody sit in my chair
And ruin my sleep
And make me aware of
Being alive, being alive
Somebody need me too much
Somebody know me too well
Somebody pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support for being alive
Being alive

Make me alive, make me confused
Mock me with praise, let me be used
Vary my days, but alone is alone,
Not alive!

Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there,
Frightened as you,
To help us survive being alive
Being alive
Being alive
