The Hooters

This song, composed by Eric Bazilian, is a jubilant celebration of life and love. The upbeat, bouncy melody and reflective lyrics inspire feelings of hopefulness and optimism. The happiness of the present has been built on hard work and heartache of the past to where the protagonist can just enjoy the simple sunlight of the day.

Song Lyrics

I’ve got a condition for which there is no cure
I’m in a position that everyone prays for
Got a sound in my head that could wake up the dead
Like the who singing Summertime blues
Got no thorn in my side, got no secrets to hide
I’m completely and utterly amused

I’m alive, I’m alive, it’s a beautiful day and I’m happy to say
I’m alive, I’m alive and wherever I go it’s amazing to know
I’m alive

From running fast as fast as I could getting nowhere
I’m standing incredibly steadily somewhere
Got a hand on a jug and a girl that I love
And it’s driving me out of my mind
I’m a bird on the wing with the world on a string
And I’m feeling incredibly fine

I’m alive, I’m alive, it’s a beautiful day and I’m happy to say
I’m alive, I’m alive and wherever I go it’s amazing to know
I’m alive

I’m looking older now than when I was a kid
But feeling younger now than I ever did
And I’ve got no situations playing tricks upon my mind
I’m feeling Christmas in the middle of Juli
In the morning, in the night
Though I walk though the valley of the shadows
You are the light of my life
And the song in my soul and the beat of my heart and the rock in my roll

I’m alive, I’m alive, it’s a beautiful day and I’m happy to say
I’m alive, I’m alive and wherever I go it’s amazing to know
I’m alive
