Bernadette Peters--Being Alive

I love the lyrics to this song because it makes me realize how blessed I am to have the love of my husband. He makes me so happy to be alive and sharing this life with him.

Being Alive

Someone to hold you too close
Someone to hurt you too deep
Someone to sit in your chair
And ruin your sleep
And make you aware of being alive

Someone to need you too much
Someone to know you too well
Someone to pull you up short
And put you through hell
And give you support for being alive - being alive
Make me alive, make me confused
Mock me with praise, let me be used
Vary my days, but alone is alone, not alive.

Somebody hold me too close
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there
As frightened as you of being alive
Being alive, being alive

Someone you have to let in
Someone whose feelings you spare
Someone who, like it or not
Will want you to share a little, a lot of being alive
Make me alive, make me confused
Mock me with praise, let me be used
Vary my days, but alone is alone, not alive

Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there
As frightened as you to help us survive
Being alive, being alive,
Being alive, being alive.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Hi Angela,

I hope today brings you well. Keep fighting chickdee :) You are worth it. I love the lyric of Beauty from Pain by super chicks. It speaks multitudes for my pain I deal with each day. The past has brought me so much pain and now I deal with both each and everyday of my life.
