Alibi is the ninth original studio album by American folk rock duo America, released by Capitol Records in 1980. Produced by Matthew McCauley and Fred Mollin, this was the first America album not produced by George Martin since Hat Trick in 1973.

I’ll survive you, I will survive you
Well, it’s too late, I know, to change the way we go
From this day on I want to stay on
Now that I’ve started learning
And the tides started turning
Well, it’s here I want to stay

I’ll let the moon announce my arrival
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

I’m alive here, I can survive dear
Though the weather might change
From the wind to the rain
Well, my heart remains the same

I’ll let the moon announce my arrival
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

Looked out on a sea of trouble
And I tried to stall for awhile
It’s so hard to answer every question
And it’s hard to protect your heart anymore

I’ll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here

I’ll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here

I’ll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here …

The album only peaked at number 142 on the Billboard album chart in the US but did better in other countries especially Italy. No singles charted in the US, but in Italy “Survival” was a number 1 hit and the whole album peaked at 4. This is truly America’s best kept secret and showed the groups true versatility. “Hangover” did get some airplay.

  1. Yes, a #1 song in Italy. Should have been the same here, but don't know why it did nothing. It pisses me off because I kept bothering the radio DJ's to play that song, and they refused to do so. AMERICA'S managers put out the single "You Could Have Been The One" instead of "Survival" But 2 years later, boom! They nailed it with "You Can Do Magic"

  2. The boys of America are in top form at all times. It was too bad that Danny had to leave long ago when he did. But he is likely in a much better place now.

    America's music is perfect for hearing at a concert that a guy goes to with a lovely date! Oh, the dinner plans that they can make for when the show is over.

  3. Been searching for this song all my days since i heard it back when i was in high school, now im 35 and im a proud father, i can listen to their song all day long! What a great band! Cheers from Philippines!
