Song Description

As I am excitedly explaining to the angel how wonderful it feel to be alive, I hand the angel a rock, at which point it falls to the ground. I explain in the last line, that saying I'm sorry, I didn't mean to upset you, is also what it's like to feel alive.

Story Behind the Song

I feel very fortunate as though I have some wonderful guardian angels who have been looking out for me. I was driving a red convertable Jaguar across a bridge in Michigan on a beautiful summer day and this whole lyric came into my head. It's on my CD 'Wake Up, Start Dreaming' and I receive beautiful letters and email from people who have said they have been touched by this song. I guess I'm not the only one who talks to angels... You can listen and download this music at and itTunes, CDBaby and many sites. Thank you.

Verse 1)
Yes, there is heat
And it comes from some place inside
I?m trying to describe to an angel
What it?s like to be alive

The sky is clear blue
The air the color of tea
I know I?m not really alone
The place just looks empty
What it?s like to feel alive

Verse 2)
And sometimes
When I?m out on a drive
And the sky is throwing colors
Feels like you?re on a circus ride

And sometimes his hands
So gentle and alive
Moving slowly over me
Makes me want to cry
This is what it?s like to feel alive

Bridge -
Sometimes, when I shut my eyes
I feel like I?m breaking through
I know you are here
I just can?t see you - but I know you?re here

Verse 3)
And there?s a strange way
That time halts and disappears
When you are surrounded by light and love
You find yourself laughing through your tears

Here, take this rock in your hands
Can you feel the solid cool?
No? I?m sorry, I?m sorry?
I didn?t mean, to upset you
This is what it?s like to feel alive

I?m not cruel, No, really I?m not
I just working hard, To untie the knot,
The one that keeps me earth bound
When I just want to fly ?
You see -- this is what it?s like to feel alive
