Matt Maher – Alive Again (Devotional)

The writing of “Alive Again” started 2 years before it was finished; I actually started writing it the same day that I wrote “Empty & Beautiful.” For some reason as I was writing that song, the chorus of “Alive Again” was born. About 2 years later I was driving from McAllen, Texas to San Antonio, Texas to catch a flight. The band and I left our hotel around 4:30 in the morning.
