I’m still alive must’ve been a miracle

It’s been a hell of ride

destination still unknown it’s a fact of life

If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head

You dare to walk the line or you’ll be left for dead

 

I’m a runaway train on a broken track

I’m a ticker on the bomb that you can’t turn back

this time that’s right

I got away with it all and I’m still alive

Let the end of the world come tumbling down

I’ll be the last man standing on the ground

As long as hot blood runs through my veins

I’m still alive

 

Lost in the night feeling so invisible

Oh a dead man walking the wire

High above the devils net that’s made of fire

And it’s a long way down from the top of the world

You better look around or you gonna get burned

 

I’m a runaway train on a broken track

I’m a ticker on the bomb that you can’t turn back

this time that’s right

I got away with it all and I’m still alive

Let the end of the world come tumbling down

I’ll be the last man standing on the ground

And as the dust clears look in my eyes

I’m still alive I’m still alive

 

The darkest night ain’t black enough

to keep the morning light from shining

The highest wall ain’t tall enough

to keep the smallest man from climbing

The more that you resist the tide

the more it pulls you in

the more you hang on for your life

 

(I’m a runaway train on a broken track)

(I’m a ticker on a bomb that you can’t turn back)

(This time, that’s right)

I got away with it all and I’m still alive

I’m a runaway train on a broken track

I’m a ticker on a bomb that you can’t turn back

this time that’s right

I got away with it all and I’m still alive

Let the end of the world come tumbling down

I ‘ll be the last man standing on the ground

 

And if my shadow is all that survives I’m still alive

I’m still alive

I’m still alive

I’m a runaway train on a broken track

I’m a ticker on a bomb that you can’t turn back

Let the end of the world come tumbling down I’ll be the last man standing

I’m still alive !!

 

 
Lyrics

1. ALIVE/ writers: Holly Knight/ Desmond Child/ Andrea Remanda/ James Michael
 

I’ve known Desmond for many many years, our history started when his band, Desmond Child and Rouge opened up for my band Spider at a club called Trax where we were the house band . Years later, after we had both made it as songwriters, I wrote Hide Your Heart with him and Paul Stanley. He also produced  The Best for Bonnie Tyler’s record before Tina Turner recorded it. So writing on the new Meatloaf record was us coming  full circle. In addition to the epic Alive, Desmond Child, Elena Casals and I wrote another track called Monstro for the record. –HK
