"Alive"

(As recorded by the Bee Gees)
BARRY & MAURICE GIBB

Maybe you talk too high man
Maybe you talk too slow
But you've got to live a little bit faster
'Cause you've got a little less time to go
I ain't lost and I ain't searching
But then you know me very well
And I can't change the wind, and make it blow the other way
I'm a fool, and I can tell

That I'm alive and that's all
And I can get up just as fast as I fall
And I can walk along but I'll never crawl
And in the end it doesn't matter at all
I don't know about the people
That I read about in books
And the kings and queens around my room
With their quite dirty looks
I know I should be going somewhere, I just can't arrive
And a reason for believin', that I've never been alive
Alive.

I ain't lost and I ain't searching
But then you know me very well
And I can't change the world, and make it go the other way
I'm a fool, and I can tell

That I'm alive and that's all
And I can get up just as fast as I fall
And I can walk along but I'll never crawl
And in the end it doesn't matter at all
I don't know about the people
That I read about in books
And the kings and queens around my room
With their quite dirty looks
I know I should be going somewhere, I just can't arrive
And a reason for believin', that I've never been alive
I know I should be going somewhere, I just can't arrive
And a reason for believin', that I've never been alive
Alive
Alive.
