Did you ever see a man with no heart
Baby that was me
Just a lowly lonely man with no heart
Till you set me free

Now I can breathe, I can see
I can touch, I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

I used to think that I was living
Baby I was wrong
No I never knew a thing about living
Till you came along
Now I can breathe, I can see
I can touch, I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Now I can breathe, I can see
I can touch, I can feel
I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the love I've ever missed
I never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive

HE AINT HEAVY, HE'S MY BROTHER - 24/09/1988

The road is long, with many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I'm strong, strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go, his welfare is my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know, he would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all, I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart isn't filled with the gladness
Of love, for one another

It's a long, long road, from which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
