Artist: Live

I, Alone ~ Live

Live is an American alternative rock band from York, Pennsylvania, comprised of Ed Kowalczyk (lead vocals and guitar), Chad Taylor (lead guitar), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass guitar) and Chad Gracey (drums and percussion). Since approximately 1999, Live has toured with Ed’s younger brother Adam Kowalczyk as a rhythm guitarist. They have also previously toured with British keyboardist Michael “Railo” Railton and Christopher Thorn (from Blind Melon).

The song, Lightning Crashes was never released as a single in the United States, and therefore made it ineligible for the Billboard Hot 100 hits, yet it received enough radio airplay to peak at the #12 position on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart for 1994. It is considered to be the biggest hit of Live’s career to date.

The band dedicated the song to Barbara Lewis, a friend of the band who had been killed by a drunk driver who was fleeing from the police after a robbery. Barbara had many of her organs donated, and the song lyrics reflect how her death enabled others to continue living. After the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, Ed Kowalczyk would frequently dedicate the song to the victims at live shows.

Soon after the Oklahoma City Bombing on April 19, 1995, a local radio station mixed in news clippings, audio clips of U.S. President Bill Clinton and Governor of Oklahoma Frank Keating responding to the attack, along with other sounds (such as ambulance and fire engine sirens) of that day.

I Alone

[flv]http://djallyn.org/media/IAlone.flv[/flv]

Its easier not to be wise
And measure these things by your brains
I sank into eden with you
Alone in the church by and by

Ill read to you here, save your eyes
Youll need them, your boat is at sea
Your anchor is up, youve been swept away
And the greatest of teachers wont hesitate
To leave you there, by yourself,
Chained to fate

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this!

Its easier not to be great
And measure these things by your eyes
We long to be here by his resolve
Alone in the church by and by
To cradle the baby in space
And leave you there by yourslef
Chained to fate

Oh, now, we took it back too far,
Only love can save us now, all these riddles that you burn
All come runnin back to you, all these rhythms that you hide
Only love can save us now, all these riddles that you burn
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Lightning Crashes

lightning crashes, a new mother cries
her placenta falls to the floor
the angel opens her eyes
the confusion sets in
before the doctor can even close the door

lightning crashes, an old mother dies
her intentions fall to the floor
the angel closes her eyes
the confusion that was hers
belongs now, to the baby down the hall

oh now feel it comin’ back again
like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin’ from the center of the earth again
I can feel it.

lightning crashes, a new mother cries
this moment she’s been waiting for
the angel opens her eyes
pale blue colored iris,
presents the circle
and puts the glory out to hide, hide

oh now feel it comin’ back again
like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin’ from the center of the earth again
I can feel it.
I can feel it.

I can feel it comin’ back again
like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin’ from the center of ther earth again
I can feel it.
I can feel it.

The Dolphin’s Cry

[flv]http://djallyn.org/media/DolphinCry.flv[/flv]

The way you’re bathed in light
Reminds me of that night
God layed me down into your rose
Garden of trust
And I was swept away
With nothing left to say
Some helpless fool yet I was lost
In a swoon of peace
You’re all I need to find.
So when the time is right.
Come to me sweetly, come to me.
Come to me.

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin’s cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It’s in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us

Oh yeah we’ll meet again,
It’s like we never left
Time in between was just a dream
Did we leave this place?
This crazy fog surrounds me
You wrap your legs around me
All i can do to try and breathe
Let me breath

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin’s cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It’s in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us
So that I
So we can go together
Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin’s cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It’s in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us

Life is like a shooting star
It don’t matter who you are
If you only run for cover, it’s just a waste of time
We are lost ’till we are found
This phoenix rises up from the ground
And all these wars are over

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin’s cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
In the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us

Life is like a shooting star
It don’t matter who you are
If you only run for cover, it’s just a waste of time
We are lost ’till we are found
This phoenix rises up from the ground
And all these wars are over, over, over, over

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin’s cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It’s in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us
