"I'm Alive" as written by and Heather Nova....
Your hands were covered in paint
The pillow smothered my cry
You were half charmer half snake
I lived in dream time

But I'm alive
I survived you
And the bitter taste
The years I wasted
All the hate is gone
Cause I'm alive

Some nights I'd sleep in the car
Just to escape you
You drove devotion too far
No one could save you

But I'm alive
I survived you
And the bitter taste
The years I wasted
All the hate is gone
Cause I'm alive

I still have visions of you
I still have nights to get through
And when the trust isn't true
I have these visions of you
I have these visions of you

And I'm alive
I survived you
And the bitter taste
The years I wasted
All the hate is gone
Cause I'm alive
I'm alive

I'm alive
Ride on and fade away
I'm alive
There's nothing more to say
I'm alive
Ride on and fade away
I'm alive
There's nothing more to say
I'm alive
Ride on and fade away
And the bitter taste
The years I wasted
All the hate is gone

    General CommentWords cannot describe how much I adore this song...

    As for thee meaning, clearly it's about healing after a destructive/abusive relationship - probably with a lover, but not necessarily; it could be about a family member, perhaps.
