This song was written by Mariah because of the inspiration of her uncle. She wants to provide encouragement to all of our servicemen and servicewomen who return from the hell of war and can’t shake the past. Whether it is PTSD or a brain injury you and your family are not alone. Principled Warrior Foundation has been started to help soldiers returning from war and their families dealing with the stress of reliving the past. Our family believes strongly that you should have a chance to put the past behind you. Mariah will be donating 50% of the sales of this song to the Principled Warrior Foundation in an ongoing effort to provide help to those in need.

Lyrics

I’m Alive
By Mariah Hostrander

Chaotic confusion as I look around
Screaming and shouting I can’t hear a sound
Going through these motions one more time
Just to make it out alive

A war on the outside is forever
Stuck inside my mind
Play, pause, repeat
Feeling the heat
Together we’ll make it out alright
But will I find peace in this fight

If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Stuck on route with no destination or safe place
Why am I so weak instead of so strong
For coming back and pushing on

A war on the outside is forever
Stuck inside my mind
Play, pause, repeat
Feeling the heat
Together we’ll make it out alright
But when will I find peace in this fight

I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

A war on the outside is forever
Stuck inside my mind
Play, pause, repeat
Feeling the heat
Together we’ll make it out alright
Today we’ll find peace in this fight

Together we’ll find peace
In this fight
