"Alive" as written by Bo Bruce, James Barry and Daniel John O'Donoghue....
Walking down the highway traffic's coming my way.
All I see are flashing lights.
People in their blue suits wanna know the real truth.
How many did I have tonight?
Looking at the wreckage anyone would guess that all inside have died.
But I'm alive.

Wake up in a strange bed, angels over my head.
One of them is shouting clear.
A thousand bolts of lightning bring me back to life and it's a miracle that I'm still here.
As I'm coming to I'm screaming out for you I need you by my side.
Oh I'm alive.

No I didn't pray to god, no I never saw a light.
No I didn't watch my life go flashing right before my eyes.
No I didn't do the things that they all said that I would do.
I just closed my eyes and all I saw was you.

All the things in my head, everything left unsaid I never got a second to say.
I knew that I adored you the moment that I saw you just terrified you'd push me away.
We're all dying slowly just want you to hold me.
What are we waiting for?
We're alive!

No I didn't pray to god, no I never saw a light.
No I didn't watch my life go flashing right before my eyes.
No I didn't do the things that they all said that I would do.
I just closed my eyes and all I saw was you.

If I don't die lying in the rain and I live another day then I'd run to you.
'Cause I don't have regrets just things I never said to you.

No I didn't pray to god, no I never saw a light.
No I didn't watch my life go flashing right before my eyes.
No I didn't do the things that they all said that I would do.
I just closed my eyes and all I saw was you.
