So Alive

It's the end of the evening
All my friends are leaving
I stand outside as the warm day light falls away
We'll have our memories
It's been a perfect Sunday
But I'm not ready at all
To call it a day

I want to lay my body on the ground and listen
I want to close my eyes
And trust my inner vision
And when I wake up early in the morning shivering
I'll be alive

I'm slowly drifting
I've got a real good feeling
As I lay down in the gentle arms of the ground
You can take my worries
'Cause I no longer need them
With so much moonlight
The healing glow all around

I want to lay my body on the ground and listen
I want to close my eyes
And trust my inner vision
And when I wake up early in the morning shivering
I'll be alive

So Alive and I did not know it
I thought I'd already found the way
But there's more to my life than I can say
Some kind of shell I've broken
Blew apart in the wind of change
Now I'm willing to trust this world again
