we felt alive lyrics – 88

there was n*body home so we ran upstairs
and you tore off your clothes and i sat and i stared
there’s a million and one things that i’d like to try
so we went to the top but we got much too high
at least we felt alive

we rolled like pigs in the mud
we left our worries behind
yes, yes

and we couldn’t believe what we saw and we cared
but they’ll probably tell us that no one was there
with the gold in your teeth and a gleam in your eye
and the rays of the sun burn a hole through the sky
at least we felt alive

we rolled like pigs in the mud
we thumbed our noses at time
we threw our clothes in the dirt
we left our worries behind
i saw it so well
and i could tell we were alive

when the thoughts in your head get the upper hand
and your mom and your dad never understand
and you want them to know but you can’t even try
‘cause they call you a thief while they’re rollin’
their eyes

we rolled like pigs in the mud
we thumbed our noses at time
we threw our clothes in the dirt
we left our worries behind
we tossed our cares in the weeds
our hearts beat right through our chests
with everything that we need
i have to say we were blessed
and i saw it so well
and i could tell we were alive
