Grunge rock 90s alternative rock pearl jam

"Alive" is a song by the American rock band Pearl Jam. "Alive" was Pearl Jam's first single, and appeared on the band's debut album, Ten (1991). Written by guitarist Stone Gossard, "Alive" originated as an instrumental titled "Dollar Short" and was included on a demo tape circulated in hopes of finding a singer for the group. Vocalist Eddie Vedder obtained a copy of the tape and wrote lyrics that describe a true account of the time when he was told that the man he thought was his father was not actually his biological parent.

Son, she said, Have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your Daddy was nothin' but a
While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin'
Sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked

Oh, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, I, but I'm still alive
Hey I, but I'm still alive
Hey, oh

Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room
She said I'm ready for you
I can't remember anything to this very day
'Cept the look, the look
Oh, you know where, now I can't see, I just stare

I, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Hey I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey I, but I'm still alive, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, yeah

Is something wrong? she said
Well, of course there is
You're still alive, she said
Oh and do I deserve to be
And is that the question?
And if so, if so who answers, who answers?

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, but I'm still alive
Hey I, but I'm still alive
Look here, we are, we
We're all still alive, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm still alive, yeah oh
I'm still alive, yeah oh, yeah
