Written by: Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb (1971)


Maybe you talk too high, man.
Maybe I talk too slow.
But you've got to live a little bit faster
'cause you've got a little less time to go.

I ain't lost and I ain't searching,
but then you know me very well.
And I can't change the wind
and make it blow the other way.
I'm a fool and I can tell...

... that I'm alive and that's all,
that I can get up just as fast as I fall.
And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl.
And in the end it doesn't matter at all.

I don't know about the people
that I read about in books.
And the kings and queens around my room
with their quiet and dirty looks.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive.
Alive.

I ain't lost and I ain't searching,
but then you know me very well.
And I can't change the world
and make it go the other way.
I'm a fool and I can tell...

that I'm alive and that's all,
that I can get up just as fast as I fall.
And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl.
And in the end it doesn't matter at all.

I don't know about the people
that I read about in books.
And the kings and queens around my room
with their quiet and dirty looks.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive.
Alive, alive.
