I’m Alive

I spent five years swimming up against the current
Thinking I was going somewhere but I wasn’t
Getting tired and being tired was my life
But they told me it would all be worth the fight
I’ll never know but I let it go
and it feels all right
I floated down the river and I just took it easy
Saw so many things I’d missed when I was busy
Being tired and trying so hard to win something
That after all the swimming doesn’t look like nothing
I’ll never know but I let it go
And it feels all right
I’ll never know but I let it go
And it feels all right

Chorus:
I say why spend my life worried about things I can’t control
Why……………
and why spend my life worried about things I cannot know
Why……………
While I’m alive

I could cry over all the years that I had lost
Cut off from that life of lies at such a cost
But why waste energy on placing blame
I don’t know where I would be anyway
I’ll never know but I let it go
And it feels all right
I hear their voices haunting me as I float by
Warning me “swim or you will surely die”
But I believe I made the best choice I could make
and I refuse to question myself every day
I’ll never know but I let it go
And it feels all right
I’ll never know but I let it go
And it feels all right

Chorus:
I say why spend my life worried about things I can’t control
Why……………
and why spend my life worried about things I cannot know
Why……………

While I’m alive_______________
I’m alive___________________
I’m alive__________________
I forget that I have a life and I’m not dead yet
I’m alive__________________
Make the best of the life I have without regret

Chorus:
I say why spend my life worried about things I can’t control
Why……………
and why spend my life worried about things I cannot know
Why……………
While I’m alive
