I’m Alive – The Mirror


I woke up today not too sure of my feeling
Lying on my back just staring at the ceiling
The dream I had filled me with fear
I dreamed I was dead and far away from here
But I'm alive I'm alive, I'm alive thank the Lord I am

Go out of bed took a walk outside
Everything around me seemed to say it's alright
The bad dream i had last night had faded away
I'm glad it wasn't real I'm so happy to say
I'm alive I'm alive I'm alive thank the Lord I am

Living for some people isn't easy
Chasing money all the time
Slaving all the day just to get a little pay
Ain't the way to get what you want
Peace of mind is hard to find

I'm alive I'm alive I'm alive thank the Lord I am

I'm happy being here and just to look around
There's so much to be done and much more to be found
Though I don't have much I know I'll get by
Cause hope and love are all I need in this world to survive
I'm alive I'm alive, I'm alive thank the Lord I am thank the Lord I am
I'm so glad I'm so glad I'm so glad it's not my turn







I looked into the mirror and it poisoned my mind twice
It left me both times crippled
And it tossed my fate like dice

I looked into the mirror and the devil smiled both times
My flesh was sold with no feelings
With no reason or rhyme

The smile on my face gave way to my feeling
But only time was there to tell
Somewhere in space my thoughts are still reeling
The mirror looked through hell
And damned me where I fell

You mistreated the boxer
You held his spirit down
(Yes she did, yes she did, yes she did, yes she did)
You colored his reflection
'Cause you didn't like his sound

But now my head is clearing
And I'm startin' to see the light
(see the light, see the light, see the light, see the light)
Now I'm lookin' to the mirror
And I don't know if it's day or night

The smile on my face gave way to my feeling
But only time was there to tell
Somewhere in space my thoughts are still reeling
The mirror looked through hell
And damned me where I fell

see the light, see the light, see the light, see the light...
