"Alive" as written by and Edwin Cole Mc Cain....
It feels so good to breathe the air
Another spin around the sun
On this spec of life
In the universe
The gift of love
Is there for everyone

Angels working over time
Day or night to hold the hands
That play all alone
A baby's born pure to the world
As the old man lays down his head and closes his eyes
With nothing said

Every year another promise is made
A pint of beer raised towards a better day
Lets find a star, a star to call our own
And make a wish, maybe we can make it home

Ain't it good to be alive?
To feel the sun, strong against your face
Strawberry blond waves of silky hair
Spills over me like the milky way

Ain't it good to be alive?
Ain't it good to be alive?

Alive, alive
Alive, alive

Ain't it good to breathe the air
Another spin around the sun
On this spec of life in the universe
A little peace of life in everyone
Ain't it good to be alive?
Ain't it good to be alive?
To feel the sun strong against your face
It spills over me like the milky way

Alive, alive
Alive, alive

    General CommentObviously, it is about feeling good. It doesn't have to be anything in particular. Different things for different people.
    For me, my daughter was born when this song first came out. I loved to hold her and dance with her to this song.

    General CommentI believe He is describing a utterly fantastic trip, and he is definately with A loved one or A lover, But he has just reached the peak of his trip, and finally feels completely enlightened as if he's finally at peace, "lets find a star a star to call our own
    and make the wish maybe we can't make it home"
    In that line I get the feeling that he does not wish to return to reality, he just wishes to stay with his lover in the phenomenal world they have found themselves in...
    ~And Yes I agree, A great Song!!!

    General CommentTo me it feels like describing the passing of the years and the pure joy of just living. That's what I get from it. It's just celebrating how great it is to be alive and enjoy life. Definitely a positive song for me. I always smile when I listen to it.
