Song lyrics
From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars, for satellites
I never dreamed, that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing Amen I, I'm alive (I'm alive)
Singing Amen I, I'm alive

If everyone cared, nobody cried
If everyone loved, nobody lied
If everyone shared, swallowed their pride
We'd see the day, when nobody died

And I'm singing
Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I (I'm alive)

And in the air, the fireflies
Our only light, in paradise
We'll show the world, they were wrong
And teach them all, to sing along

Singing Amen I, I'm alive (I'm alive)
Singing Amen I, I'm alive

If everyone cared, nobody cried
If everyone loved, nobody lied
If everyone shared, swallowed their pride
We'd see the day, when nobody died

If everyone cared, nobody cried
If everyone loved, nobody lied
If everyone shared, swallowed their pride
We'd see the day, when nobody died

When nobody died

And as we lie, beneath the stars
We realize, how small we are
If they could love, like you and me
Imagine what, the world could be

If everyone cared, nobody cried
If everyone loved, nobody lied
If everyone shared, swallowed their pride
We'd see the day, when nobody died

If everyone cared, nobody cried
If everyone loved, nobody lied
If everyone shared, swallowed their pride
We'd see the day, when nobody died

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died

dying physically is NOT the only way you die!! how many people today are emotionally dead??! they are sad, depressed, lonely, DEAD -INSIDE-. if everone cared, nobody would "die". why would he go talking about people caring, sharing, not lying, all feelings and emotions, to physically dying? hate in this world kills people inside. when you are sad/depressed/lonely, you are basically dead, because life consists only of feelings, and if there is nothing but sadness inside, there is really no living going on is there. --friggin awesome/amazing/thoughtprovoking/awesomee song.

Has anyone actually seen this video?
The message is explined at the end.
" A small group of committed people can change the world"

It's saying never underestimate your power, you can do anything if you try hard enough.

... Except from old age

This song is a sentimental, melodramatic crock of shit. I'd rather the world we have now than some lollipops and butterflies faggotry. Yes, I did come to this page especially to slag it off. Aren't I such a meanie?

Alongside "Savin' Me" this is another of not just my favourite of Nickelback songs.. but my favourite songs of all time.

Nickelback have outdone themselves yet again.. the lyrics are powerful.. the whole song is just fantastic.. the video is absolutely brilliant.. and gives everyone something stunningly visual.. it certainly gives you alot to think about.

If you haven't checked out the video for this song yet.. I strongly suggest you do.. it really does change your perception on the song as a whole. Fantastic!! 10/10

I'm glad to see the positive reviews. I personally love this song and am tired of people who just "don't get stuff" thinking the song means if they are good people they won't die. Has anyone seen the video? I normally don't watch videos but this one is a great one to match the song.

absolutly beautiful...nothing to complain about it.... amazing song w/ a great message


okay i know there's an argument goin on about the religious meaning to the song and i don't think there really is i agree with some ppl about the suicide i think he's trying to say if we all just cared there wouldn't be any unnessary deaths it's got nothing to with natrual death but self inflicted and murder.

great song i loved it

To me this song is not really about religion at all. While it can be interpreted that way, the meaning to me is more about what the world could be like, if no one hated each other. What the world could be like if everyone respected and accepted each other for who they were, even while their views differ from each other's. I think the line, 'when nobody dies' could mean, not so much that no one would ever die, but that a day when you don't see or hear about a person being killed from ignorance, or hate, or pride.

It's a great song and every word of it is so true. It does have a religious meaning but for those of you who said, 'oh nickelback's sending us the false information about how we could get to heaven' Bugger off then, you can go and read your bible alone. It's a very genuine song, and of course they were like picturing an image of heaven where everyone gets along with each other, it's not teaching us what we should do in order to get to heaven, it's just saying that if everyone cared then this world will be a much nicer place. And if everyone really cared from the start then god wouldn't punish us for our sins...ok i'll stop being religious

while it does have religious messages....i think the song is also about suicide. If everyone loved one another and stopped being so selfish, actually caring about the lives of the other people who need them, then suicide would be just a thing of the past.
