When I Was Alive

I wanna know I did my best
The best I could have done
With what I was meant to do
With who I was meant to be
I wanna know I was myself
Myself and no one else
When I was alive, oh yeah
When I was alive, I was me

I wanna know I wrote my story
I wanna know I chose my way
I wanna know that glory
of giving my all day after day
I wanna know who I loved
knew I loved them with all my heart
I wanna know they knew I thought
of them when we were far apart

I wanna know I did my best
The best I could have done
With what I was meant to do
With who I was meant to be
I wanna know I was myself
Myself and no one else
When I was living, oh yeah
When I was living, I was me

And it was what I chose
Not someone else’s choice
To follow my own muse
To sing with my own voice
To join all the others
who are happy with who they are
Because they are themselves
They shine like evening stars

I wanna know I did my best
The best I could have done
With what I was meant to do
With who I was meant to be
I wanna know I was myself
Myself and no one else
When I was alive, oh yeah
When I was alive, I was me

I was me and I was free
I was me and I was free
I was free by being me
I was free by being me
When I was alive
When I was alive
I was free
and I was me
When I was alive
