Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews - I’m Alive Lyrics

So damn easy to say that life’s so hard
Everybody’s got their share of battle scars
As for me I’d like to think my lucky stars that
I’m alive, and well

It’d be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you set and watch go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me, I’m alive

And today you know that’s good enough for me
Breathing in and out is a blessing can’t you see
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
And I’m alive, and well
I’m alive, and well

Stars are dancin’ on the water here tonight
It’s good for the soul, and there’s not a sole in sight
But this motors caught it wind and brought me back to life
Now I’m alive, and well

And today you know that’s good enough for me
Breathing in and out is a blessing can’t you see
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
Now I’m alive, and well
Yeah I’m alive, and well

    At a very low time of my life I listened to this song. It touched my soul in a wonderful and inspiring way. I began to feel the love of all that is God. I look into the eyes of “Kenny and Dave” as they sing this song and there is no doubt, they are alive and well.

    this song makes me feel good inside when I’m down and gives me hope for the future when everything seems so helpless.

  9. DMFan Says:

    I mean no disrespect to Chesney, but Dave Matthews sang that song better than him. That guy is an amazing vocalist. I’m a country fan at heart, but I think I’m going to start listening to Dave.

  10. michele Says:

    This is such a beautiful song. I listen to it often in tribute to my brother. He had a double lung transplant the same month that this song was released. He listened to it daily. After several years of struggling to take a breath, he was alive and well :)!!!! He had 20 months of being alive and well thanks to all the medical miracles that can be done today. I know he still singing it in heaven! He was a inspiration to all!
