I'M ALIVE
Paul Stanley, Bruce Kulick, Desmond Child

[Intro: drums only][Riff 1]Oh, let's get 'em, boys
[Rhy. Fig 1 w/ Intro solo][Rhy. Fig 3]

[Rhy. Fig 4]
Too many women, I've got too little time
I keep on tryin'
Man, if it kills me I know that I'll go

[Rhy. Fig 5]
Oh, don't need no doctor puttin' me to bed
Give me the nurse and I'll make sure that she's fed
Don't need no doctor giving me pills
I'm hot enough to give you chills

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Livin' life for love, I'm alive, I'm alive
[Rhy. Fig 3]
I can't get enough (I can't get enough)
Get it right (right) I'm alive

[Rhy. Fig 4]
Take a look in the Book of Love, man it's understood
Right to the letter
One pretty girl makes you feel pretty good
Two's even better

[Rhy. Fig 5]
Oh, I learned my lesson, my golden rule
You know I made the teachers stay after school
Don't look for reasons, don't waste my time
I've got the goods to make you mine

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Livin' life for love, I'm alive, yeah, I'm alive
[Rhy. Fig 3]
I can't get enough (I can't get enough)
Get it right (right) I'm alive

[Rhy. Fig 6 w/ Solo and Riff 2] (2x)You know baby, you make my heart beat, alright

[Rhy. Fig 1]
[Rhy. Fig 2]

[Rhy. Fig 7]
Don't need no doctor
Take a look at the Book of Love, man it's understood
It ain't a crime to feel this good, no

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Livin' life for love, I'm alive, yeah, I'm alive
I can't get enough (can't get enough)
Get it right (right) I'm alive
Sing it

[Rhy. Fig 8 w/ Outro solo]Livin' life, livin' life for love, I'm alive, I'm alive
I can't get enough (can't get enough)
Get it right I'm alive (I'm alive)
Livin' life for love (livin' life for love)
Livin' life for love (I'm alive)
Livin' life for love, (yeah, can't get enough)
Livin' life for love (I'm alive, whoo)
