"Alive" as written by Vicci Martinez and Peter Anders Svensson....
Days go by my window
World slows down as it goes
Goodbye to last night
Lost my eyesight
Can't you help me see

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive

Waking in the snow
Tracing steps with you
Swimming through the snow
Wrapped in velvet
Can't you help me see (they won’t get right)

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive

Can you feel it’s call through me
I’m the one that you seek
All you need is so much, I’m just waiting on
Freedom is within you
Giving makes us feel good
Hello to our people
Say hello to the future
Freedom is within you
Giving makes us feel good
Hello to our people
Say hello to the future

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive

    My InterpretationIs that all people really think this song is about? drugs? come on..

    I'm just going to explain each thing by paragraph to what I think this song is about, here goes:

    1. Days go by my window
    World slows down as it goes
    Goodbye to last night
    Lost my eyesight
    Can't you help me see

    I think this is pretty self explanatory; life seems to be the same, constant unchanging things are happening which makes life boring, he is asking someone to help him see the world in a new light.

    2. Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
    Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive, alive, alive

    The chorus(which I LOVE) is super easy to interpret, the person that he is with makes his life fun, positive and he is "loving every minute" of it. although I can see the drug reference in this too haha

    3. Waking in the snow
    Tracing steps with you
    Swimming through the snow
    Wrapped in velvet
    Can't you help me see (they won’t get right)

    To me, I start to realize that he is reminiscing the good ol' days with this person and he misses that feeling very much and in the last sentence "cant you help me see" I feel like he saying saying he wants that person(who helped him before) to help him see life like he used to.

    4. Can you feel it’s call through me
    I’m the one that you seek
    All you need is so much, I’m just waiting on

    now this part is actually sung by a woman and it seems like she is the one that the main guy is talking about, i think what she is saying that he is asking for a lot from her because the world is not as beautiful as it used to be so she is waiting for a time where she can show him that beauty again.

    5. Freedom is within you
    Giving makes us feel good
    Hello to our people
    Say hello to the future

    In this part he is saying that we have the power/freedom to make the world a better place (maybe like people from 1st world countries helping out the 3rd world countries), a peaceful world where people help each other out. That will become our future and it is welcome to come into our lives.

    In the end this song makes me wonder about that woman that person was looking for, maybe she wasn't a woman but instead she was a beautiful world with no worries that he used to live in as a child rather than the ugly world with hate and war that he sees now as an adult.

    I love this song and especially this band! I have seen a couple of their interviews and in one of the them he mentioned that he wanted to sing about the beauty in the world, he said that he was always hearing about hell and ugliness of it that he wanted to sing about heaven and the beauty of the world.

    My OpinionThis song doesn't have to be about drugs, it can be about a partner as well.

    General CommentWhat? Connection with drugs can see only junkies without experience with love. Sorry for them.

    General CommentIt's about drugs again, I guess all their songs is about drugs. It's a nice song and the "Stretched" version is a real trip song.
