Aaron Tveit Lyrics
Next To Normal Soundtrack - Musical, 2009
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
I'm Alive GABE
I am what you want me to be
And I'm your worst fear, you'll find it in me
Come closer
Come closer

DOCTOR (spoken)
where does he come from, do you think?



GABE
I am more than memory
I am what might be, I am mystery
You know me
So show me
When I appear, it's not so clear if I'm a simple spirit or I'm flesh and blood

But I'm alive, I'm alive, I am so alive
And I feed on the fear that's behind your eyes
And I need you to need me, it's no surprise
I'm alive, so alive
I'm alive

NATALIE (spoken)
Four times a week, that's a lot, don't you think?

DAN (spoken)
It's what the doctor recommended.

NATALIE (spoken)
It's not going to get better, is it? He's never going away.

DAN (spoken)
I don't know, Natalie.

NATALIE (spoken)
This is one of those moments when you could just be a typical parent and lie and say yes.

DAN (spoken)
yes.

NATALIE (spoken)
Thanks, that's comforting.

GABE
I am flame and I am fire,
I am destruction, decay, and desire
I'll hurt you

DAN (spoken)
You know, Natalie...

GABE
I'll heal you

DAN (spoken)
It's not all about your comfort!

GABE
I'm your wish, your dream come true,
and I am your darkest nightmare, too.
I've shown you

DAN (spoken)
It's about helping your mother!

GABE
I own you

NATALIE (spoken)
As always!

GABE
And though you made me, you can't change me
I'm the perfect stranger who knows you too well
But I'm alive, I'm alive, I am so alive
And I'll tell you the truth if you let me try
You're alive, I'm alive, and I'll show you why,
I'm alive, so alive

NATALIE (spoken)
Valium, Xanax...

GABE
I'm alive

NATALIE
What the hell?

GABE
I'm alive, I'm right behind you
You say forget, but I remind you
You can try to hide, but you know that I will find you
Cause if you won't grieve me, you won't leave me behind
Oh, how, oh

DOCTOR (spoken)
You say he's eighteen now. Isn't that when kids move out?
Don't you think it's time to let him go?

GABE
Whoa
Whoa
No, no, no
I'm alive, I'm alive, I am so alive.
If you climb on my back, then we both can fly
If you try to deny me, I'll never die.
I'm alive, so alive
I'm alive
Yeah yeah
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
