Dying To Be Alive

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z. Hanson)

Lead Singer: Taylor



I heard you crying
Somebody stole your soul
How could I be dying?
I turned twenty five days ago
Yeah, we're all. . .

(Chorus)
On the ground just, crying out
Somebody save me, please!
I won't sit around just, thinking 'bout
The troubles that tomorrow brings
Yeah
I'm dyin' to be alive, yeah
I'm dyin' to be alive, yeah
Let's not go through our lives
Without just dyin' to be alive, yeah

People you touch, the way you touch them
I hope that they've touched you too
Cause in this life it's hard to tell
What is false and what is true.
Yeah we're all. . .

On the ground just, crying out
Somebody save me, please!
I won't sit around just, thinking 'bout
The troubles that tomorrow brings
Yeah
I'm dyin' to be alive, yeah
Not tryin' to just survive, yeah
Let's not go through our lives
Without just dyin' to be alive, yeah

And we all come tumbling down
No matter how strong, we all return to the ground
Another day comes, stay closer to fate
Soon you'll find it's a little bit too late
Too late, yeah

(Guitar Break)

Na na na na na na (repeat x6)

When you see the way you see
That you'll never be seen again
Just go through life, livin' on luck
Betting ten-thousand and ten, yeah
Mistakes I made in this life
I can't say why or when
But the thing that is strange
Is that you only live once
I'll never look back again, yeah

I'm dyin' to be alive, yeah
Not tryin' to just survive, yeah
Let's not go through our lives
Without just dyin' to be alive, yeah

I'm dyin' to be alive, yeah
Not tryin' to just survive, yeah
Let's not go through our lives
Without just dyin' to be alive, yeah

And we all come tumbling down
No matter how strong, we all return to the ground
And the days come saying why did I wait
You can't just leave your life up to fate
You got to turn it around before it's too late
