Alive - One Direction


The Experience: One Direction wanna live anything that makes you feel alive. Their goal: I wanna be with every girl I meet, even if it's only for tonight.

Lyric Video


The Meaning of Alive is a naïve way of presenting promiscuity. Niall's wanting to have sex with every girl I meet. An earlier girl in his line said "It's alright if it makes you feel alive."  He later sings that as a pick-up line for his next girl. Niall reasons later "Don't look back, live your life even if it's only for tonight."  The song doesn't match the pain that breakups really cause. Girls usually understand better than boys that relationships are meant to be long-term. I wonder what the first girl to tell Niall that line (if she ever really existed) felt when she saw him with someone else.

Ask Yourself: If promiscuity is fun, why does it cause so much heartache? 


LYRICS:
My mother told me I should go and get some therapy
I asked the doctor can you find out what is wrong with me
I don't know why I wanna be with every girl I meet
I can't control it
Yeah, I know it's taking over me
I'm going crazy
Can't contain it
So tell me just what I should do

She said, hey, it's alright
Does it make you feel alive?
Don't look back
Live your life
Even if it's only for tonight
She said, hey, it's alright
If it makes you feel alive

Went to a party, just after the doctor talked to me
I met a girl, I took her, end up to the balcony
I whisper something in her ear that I just can't repeat
She said okay, but she was worried what her friends will think
She's going crazy
Can't contain it
She asked me what should I do?

I said, hey, it's alright
Does it make you feel alive?
Don't look back
Live your life
Even if it's only for tonight
I said, hey, it's alright
If it makes you feel alive

We got to live before we get older
Do what we like
We got nothing to lose
Shake off the weight of the world from your shoulders
We got nothing to prove

I said, hey, it's alright
Does it make you feel alive?
Don't look back
Live your life
Even if it's only for tonight

I said, hey, it's alright
Does it make you feel alive?
Don't look back
Live your life
Even if it's only for tonight
I said, hey, it's alright
If it makes you feel alive
