I'm Alive was the Albanian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 performed by Elhaida Dani. The Albanian entry was originally a ballad called Diell, but some time after the national final its composer withdrew it before the final confirmation deadline, resulting in this song taking its place.

It squeaked out of the first semi-final in 10th place. In the final, it was performed in 26th position, following Russia and preceding Italy. At the close of voting, it finished in 17th place with 34 points.

Lyrics

Ay yi yi yi yi yi…
Yeah yeah yeah…
Ay yi yi yi yi yi…
Yeah yeah yeah…

I was too afraid right from the start
To even let you, welcome you in my heart
You cut it deep and left it bleeding hard
Will I ever heal these painful scars?

I just can’t help it
I’m out of breath, I’m trying to find the words to say
Time passed by
Now it’s broad daylight

I know you will come with the speed of the light
You’re my everything, all that I need
You shut down my dreams, but I’m not gonna cry
You live within me, that’s why I’m alive

I am alive, ’cause you are my life
You are my sun
I am alive, ’cause you are my life

Ay yi yi yi yi yi…
Yeah yeah yeah yeah…
Ay yi yi yi yi yi…
Yeah yeah yeah…

Your name is printed crystal clear on glass
From all the sighs coming out of my breath
I’m blinded by this love, can’t stop screaming out your name so loud
Where are you at? Baby, won’t you come back?

(Baby, please come back)
(Baby, please come back)
(Baby, please come back)

I know you will come with the speed of the light
You’re my everything, all that I need
You shut down my dreams, but I’m not gonna cry
You live within me, that’s why I’m alive

I am alive, ’cause you are my life
You are my sun
I am alive, ’cause you are my life
Yeah…

(I know you will come with the speed of the light)
You’re my everything, you’re all that I need
You shut down my dreams, but I’m not gonna cry
You live within me, that’s why I’m alive

I am alive, ’cause you are my life
You are my sun
I am alive, ’cause you are my life

(Ay yi yi yi yi yi…)
(Yeah yeah yeah…) You are my life
