I'm Alive...

It's a song collaboration of Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews. I saw their live performance in the CMA awards and the song kinda' stuck with me so I decided to make a simple slide using it as the background. The lyrics are below the Slides. Inspiring.



So damn easy to say that life's so hard
Everybody's got their share of battle scars
As for me I'd like to thank my lucky stars that
I'm alive and well

It'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you've sat and watch go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me... I'm alive

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
And I'm alive and well
I'm alive and well

Stars are dancin' on the water here tonight
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight
This motor's caught its wind and brought me back to life
Now I'm alive and well

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
Now I'm alive and well
Yeah I'm alive and well

kailan kaya ako makagawa ng slides na ganyan. meaning, may kasamang bata. in my dreams na lang talaga at ipinagkait na yata for good.

oo nga, si Santa siguradong hindi papayag. kaya dalhin na lang dapat ni Santa dito kahit ilang araw lang.
