ALIVE

©Debbie L. Rice (BMI)

When you’re deep in despair

Nobody’s there

And you feel you’re all alone,

When the world turns away

It gets harder each day

To face the great unknown

 

There’s a choice you can make

You can let your heart break,

Put up walls, and turn to stone.

Or turn your face to the sky,

Lift your hands up high

And choose life like you’ve never known.

 

(Chorus)

I want to soar

I want to glide

I want to take to air

And know that I can fly

I want to sing

I don’t want to cry

I want to breathe the air

And know that I’m alive

I choose life.  (Do Do Do’s…)

 

I’ll break the chains of the past

This sadness won’t last

And the pain will all go away.

You’ll be there by my side

I’ve nothing to hide,

And you love me anyway.

 

If I cling to your hand

Give me strength to stand

And face a brand new day

 

(Chorus)

I want to soar

I want to glide

I want to take to air

And know that I can fly

 

I want to sing

Don’t want to cry

I want to breathe the air

And know that I’m alive

I choose life.  (Do Do Do’s…)

I choose life.  (Do Do Do’s…)

 

(Bridge/Rap)

Think about the best, not the worst

The beauty, not the ugly

Things to praise, not to curse

The Holy and the lovely

Think about peace, and don’t worry

In Christ you have new life

Take it slow, there’s no hurry

You’re alive and you can fly!!

 

(Chorus)

I want to soar

I want to glide

I want to take to air

And know that I can fly

I want to sing

Don’t want to cry

I want to breathe the air

And know that I’m alive 

I choose life.  (Do Do Do’s…)

I choose life.  (Do Do Do’s…)

 

Tag:  I’m Alive,  Do, Do, Do…..

       I’m Alive, Do Do, Do

            I’m Alive.
