Inspiring Lyric of the Day – P.O.D. – Alive

b00005mb1i01lzzzzzzz.jpg And all this time you thought this was only an anthem for extreme sports?!?! 🙂 P.O.D. came out with this gem back in 2001 and the video was released on that fateful Tuesday in September of 2001. Not only is the song uplifting, but the lyrics are inspiring. The group’s name, “P.O.D.” stands for ‘Payable Upon Death’.

The meaning becomes clearer if you read 1st John 4:8 and then substitute that for the word, “love”.

You can check the song out by clicking here: P.O.D. on Napster (They’ll make your register, but it’s free.)

“And now that I know You, I could never turn my back away.” I hear you, fellas. I hear you loud and clear.

Alive – P.O.D. (from the album, “Satellite”)

Everyday is a new day

I’m thankful for every breath I take

I won’t take it for granted

So I learn from my mistakes

It’s beyond my control

Sometimes it’s best to let go

Whatever happens in this lifetime

So I trust in love (So I trust in love)

You have given me peace of mind

.

Chorus

I, I feel so alive

For the very first time

I can’t deny You

I feel so alive

I, I feel so alive

For the very first time

And I think I can fly

.

Sunshine upon my face

A new song for me to sing

Tell the world how I feel inside

Even though it might cost me everything

Now that I know, this

All beyond my control, this

I can never turn my back away

Now that I see You

I can never look away

.

Repeat Chorus

.

And now that I know You

I could never turn my back away

And now that I see You

I could never look away

And now that I know You

I could never turn my back away

And now that I see You

I believe no matter what they say

.

Repeat Chorus (twice)

Thanks to all Christ’s kids on the web who helped me get the lyrics right. 🙂
