"I was teetering on the edge of a 12 story building a few years ago when I said, "Huh?" and then immediately went and wrote this as you hear it..."

lyrics

I can't speak for the black man
I can't speak for the Chinese
And I can't speak for women
And no one speaks for me
A black man saved my ass in prison
China's made me think
And a woman gave my body being
Now all I do is drink

Who am I?

Tell me what I'm living for
Is there something coming after?
Have I been through this before?
Let me go
Let my spirit be at peace
Give me one taste of love before I cease

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

I've loved a lot of people
I have tried with all my might
Oh may Jesus please be real
When I check out of here tonight

Is this some kind of prison
Will I ever be released
They say God is always watching
Does he ever notice me?

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

If it comes let it come quickly
Clouds of mercy bring the rain
May the darkness die forever
May I be with you again

May the sacrifice be golden
May the lamb be fully crowned
And may God forgive all evil
When I finally...
When I finally hit the ground

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

May there be a silver lining
Horses can't escape the sea
Oh the waves crash on the shoreline
But they never will be free

I can see their white manes billow
As they thunder on the shore
I will love you forever
I can say... nothing more

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am
