Stay Alive


Demo acoustic version 2012

Many days you walk alone
Many days you’re on your own
Broken hearts and broken bones
That are needing to be mended
Dark dreams in the haunted night
Break you down till you fold in fright
Just remember in the morning light
Even bad men are befriended

Stay alive, boy, stay alive
Stay alive, boy, stay alive
Stay alive, boy, stay alive
’Cause you may see her again

Do you recall it was ’63?
You roamed the fields and you felt so free
But now you’re lost on the open sea
Of regret and you’re filled with sorrow
You watched her leave on the midnight train
You watched your blood streaming down the drain
But what’s been lost you may regain
If you hang on till tomorrow


Ten thousand miles you’ve carried her promise
She said she’d always love you and you know she will
Don’t lose your faith, don’t lose your spirit
Just stay on your feet, don’t admit defeat
You’ve just got one more hill

Women come and women go
From up above and down below
From summer sun and winter snow
But there’s no one else like her now
So turn your back on the desert sand
And all the things you don’t understand
Don’t close that calloused hand
You may finally rest assured now
