Lyrics

Did you ever see a man with no heart
Baby, that was me
Just a lonely, lonely man with no heart
Til you set me free
Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
I used to think I was living
Baby, I was wrong
No I never knew a thing about living
Til you came along
Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the love I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
