I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like) Lyrics

Here we go

Everybody wants me to be who they want me to be except you
All I wanna do is be with you
They all tell me that there’s something strange
I don’t wanna be with nobody new
All I wanna do is be with you

Life sounds like
I’m alive (x6)
(This is what it sounds like)
Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

How come every day something jumps in the way
Gets complicated, I feel devestated
But when I’m feeling down, I only wanna be with you
I can’t afford the rent or remember checks I sent
To pay off all my taxes and feed the president
But there’s one thing I remember, I only wanna be with you

Life sounds like
I’m alive (x6)
(This is what it sounds like)
Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

(Break it down right here now)
You be Bonnie, I’ll be your Clyde
Hop into my car and drive like
Fireworks, we will ignite
Through the San Francisco night
Like John and Yoko
Like Ice-T and Coco
Like Jay-Z, Beyonce
Come be my fiance

Hey soul sister, I’ll be your mister
Don’t wanna be no one-night stand
How many ways can I say to make you understand
That I only wanna be your man

Life sounds like
Whoa-oh-oh
This is what it sounds like
Whoa-oh-oh
And it sounds like

I’m alive (x6)
(This is what it sounds like)
Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

(Bring it back one more time)

Everybody wants me to be who they want me to be except you
All I wanna do is be with you

Life sounds like
Whoa-oh-oh
(This is what it sounds like)
Whoa-oh-oh
Life sounds like, like, like…

Life sounds like
I’m alive (x6)
(This is what it sounds like)
Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like)
  • Ostensibly a love song about finding the one person in the world who just gets him, the tune also acts as a metaphor for the bigger issues that are going on in the world today. "This is the song that was really just an expression of gratitude for being alive and wanting to live every minute to the fullest," Franti said in our 2014 interview . "I guess I wanted to get the sound of what it means to be alive rather than the ideas of what it means to be alive. That's why right before the chorus it sounds like, 'Whooaaa,' and then just turns into a melody after that."
  • On the All People album, Franti worked extensively with outside songwriters for the first time. This song he wrote with the Australian songwriter/producer Adrian Newman, who worked with Franti on three other cuts as well: "Closer To You," "Say Goodbye" and "Long Ride Home."
