only alive lyrics – jars of clay

i’m a fair weather friend
i’m a colorless view but i’m willin’ to make a deal
if you think you can make some faith here inside
i’ll drive off and marry you

i’m only alive with you
i can’t get by and i won’t get through
so put me in the river and let me say i do
i’m only alive with you

you’re a sight for sore eyes and a newborn cry
in a year where there are so few
if you throw me a line, i’ll show you in time
i’m falling in love with you

though my heart has been torn by loves i have worn
and i’m tempted by them ever still
i tremble inside when you walk in the room
you hold my affections and will
