"I'm Alright" as written by and Bebo Norman....
I've got a little hope in my pocket,
I want to share a bit with you
Just be careful that you don't drop it,
But don't worry if you do
'Cause I got broken down inside me,
And I might just need some help
But I will get by

And I've got demons in my history,
Got bone beneath my skin
But I've been taken by a mystery,
Yes, I've been taken in
And sometimes voices down inside me
Try to fight me for myself
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest?
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning?
It's burning me up
I'm alright

I used to think love was just a barter,
Second hand coincidence
What doesn't kill you just makes you harder,
So I used my common sense
Keeping cold to keep my distance,
Till you took my pride away
Now I will get by

I am not afraid, no, I am not afraid
And I will not go crazy here

I've got a little hope here in my pocket,
I want to share a bit with you
So just be careful that you don't drop it,
But don't worry if you do
'Cause I got voices down inside me,
And I might just need some help
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest?
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning,
Burning me up?
When my heart is hurting,
I'm learning the rough
When this world starts turning,
It's burning me up
I'm alright

    When I feel crappish... this song gets me back in perspective. It's a lovely songg =)

    Even when the world is treating this guy badly, he thinks bout how God gave him hope and helps him stay in perspective and not be afraid.

    I love the line "What doesn't kill you just makes you harder." It speaks more truth than "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger." You dont get strong, you just harden your heart.

    awesome.
