“Love Is Alive” by Gary Wright (and Dianna Bonny)

The song that was chosen for my transformational singing breakthrough was “Love is Alive,” originally sung by Gary Wright. I practiced with a live version performed by Joan Osborne, which was incredibly deep, soulful and guttural. Very inspiring and freeing to sing. I’m not sure I ever sounded as good as Joan, but by the end of the workshop, I was able to come pretty close.

I had the opportunity to re-write some of the lyrics to better express myself so I thought I would share the song here.

 

Love is Alive

Well, I think it’s time to get ready

To realize just what I have found

I have lived only half of what I am

It’s all clear to me now

 

My heart is on fire

My soul’s like a wheel that’s turnin’

My love is alive

My love is alive, yeah, yeah

 

There’s something inside igniting my fire

I hope it burns forever

‘Cause what I feel is bringing life to my soul

Releasing me, forever

 

My heart is on fire

My soul’s like a wheel that’s turnin’

My love is alive

My love is alive, yeah, girl, yeah

 

My love is alive

Woo hoo, my love is alive

 

There’s a mirror inside of my soul

Reflecting the love that you shine on me

Hold on to that feeling

Let it flow, let it grow, yeah, yeah

 

My heart is on fire

My soul’s like a wheel that’s turnin’

My love is alive

My love is alive, yeah, girl, yeah

 

My heart is on fire

My soul’s like a wheel that’s turnin’

(Let me tell you now)

My love is alive

My love is alive, yeah, yeah

 

Try singing along — it’s pretty amazing!
