"I'm Alive" is a 1965 number-one UK hit single by The Hollies, written for them by American songwriter Clint Ballard Jr. However they originally passed the song over to another Manchester band, the Toggery Five, before changing their minds and recording the song, which became their first No 1 hit in the UK Singles Chart. It spent three weeks at number one in the UK and was also a No 1 hit in Ireland. The song was released as a single in the US, entering the Cash Box singles chart on July 17, 1965, and peaking at No. 84 week of August 14, 1965; it also appears on the US version of the 1965 Hollies album, Hear! Here!. Syndicate of Sound covered this song on their only album Little Girl in 1966. The song was covered by Gamma in 1979 on their debut album, Gamma 1. In 1983 the Hi-NRG group American Fade also covered the song which is listed on HotDiscoMix's Hi-NRG Top 200 — Hits of the 80's.

Did you ever see a man with no heart
Baby, that was me
Just a lonely, lonely man with no heart
Til you set me free

Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

I used to think I was living
Baby, I was wrong
No I never knew a thing about living
Til you came along

Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the things I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Now I can breathe
I can see
I can touch
I can feel

I can taste all the sugar sweetness in your kiss
You give me all the love I've ever missed
I've never felt like this
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
