Only Alive

This song is by Roy Orbison and appears on the album Cry Softly Lonely One (1967).

When you happened by my open eyes could see,
My sleeping hands awoke and almost reached,
I was full of life till you walked on by
Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive.

For a moment my heart began to beat,
My puppet legs responded to your strings,
And my shuffling feet started stepping high

Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive.

For all the things worth living for
Left me for someone new
And all of those things I lost
I was left condemned to a lonely life
Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive.
