Riff: Brad Paisley – “Officially Alive”

Apr 8, 2013

Yeah, it’s a tragedy to go through history and simply just exist/You’re gonna realize how quick it flies by and everything you missed

from Officially Alive lyrics by Brad Paisley

Finishing the oddbox that is his ninth studio effort with its most rousing, life-affirming and indeed sentimental number, Paisley joins forces with a church choir to celebrate the kind of Big L that at some point down the line will lead to you wearing scrubs in a maternity ward.
