I stood on the levy, bathed in the chill
Saying not, "I would," but "I always will."
The river lit up, like an angel, disguised
As all the emotion in my baby's eyes, yeah
And it's a day drive to Shreveport up I-49
From down in New Orleans, by the streetcar line
And I'm a long, long way from where I call home
Cause there are better ways of living than living all alone

Be alive tonight
Don't put it off til tomorrow
Be alive tonight
You never know just what might follow
Be alive tonight

Did you ever climb a mountain? Did you ever touch the sky?
Have you ever known what it's like to really want to die?
It can be the scariest thing, facing all of your fears
But once you find strength, they might disappear, disappear

Be alive tonight
You can't put it off til tomorrow
Be alive tonight
Look past your pain and your sorrow
Be alive tonight
You never know just what might follow

Maybe my smile is worn
Maybe your trust is torn
But you're all I wanted
Since the day I was born
Yeah
Come on, come on, come on...

Be alive tonight
Don't put it off til tomorrow
Be alive tonight
You never know just what might follow
Be alive, be allive tonight
Don't put it off til tomorrow
Be alive tonight
Look around your pain and your sorrow
Be alive tonight
Be alive, be alive tonight
Be alive
Be alive
