david m. bailey: Music & Lyrics

I'm Alive

(david m. bailey)
david m. bailey
Caught between the ocean and the sky
Listening to the waves sing, watching the clouds cry
Asking all the questions, never really knowing why, but i'm alive
Well we count the days that pass us and we wish that there were more
We search for the opportunities then walk by the open doors
But when i see beyond confusion, i know one thing for sure
That is that i am alive

And the life that we are given, is always worth the living
Even when the flame flickers to the coal
The answers may elude us but a love can still shine through us
To help fill the emptiness and make us whole

Thinking bout the future wondering what it may bring
Lost in the madness of a world that's suffering
Clinging to the song that every soul may sing
That is that i am alive
Well i see so many problems that i just don't understand
I've talked to the wisemen and the fools in the land
But the meanings are concealed in the shifting of the sands
And i know that i, i am alive

And the life that we are given....

Caught between the ocean and the sky... Dmb/korea/1985
