I'm up and down again
I'm losing all my friends
But it's all right
I'm forcing her to leave
And she's the better half of me
But it's all right
I miss the both of you
So much that I can't move
But it's all right
If you give me a little time
To straighten out my mind
Things will be all right, all right

I want to thank you for our talk
Holding hands while we walked
You made me feel all right
And I wonder how you feel
If it's really no big deal
Is it all right?
You said there's nothing for you to say
It would have happened either way
So it's all right
I think the worst part of it all
You don't know how beautiful you
And that isn't all right
Honey, I know you're hurt
Even if you don't put it into words
I want you to be all right

Now I'm scared of this world
And falling for another girl
But it's all right
This bed gets so damn cold
I hate sleeping here alone
But it's all right
This feeling is well deserved
I've been owed all this hurt
For a long time
If you give me a little time
To straighten out my mind
Things will be all right, all right

    General Commentsometimes it's like marc is writing about your life
    but like he said

    everyone is universally fucked up in someway
    and we just happen to just share all of it.



    it's a really sad song, esp. when you just broke up with your ex a couple weeks ago.

    General Commenttotally ineffable

    You made me feel all right
    And I wonder how you feel
    If it's really no big deal
    Is it all right?

    i like the simplicity of these lines

    General CommentI get the the feeling this song is about cheating, he made a mistake & lost people he actully loved.
    "I miss the both of you
    So much that I can't move"

    "I think the worst part of it all
    You don't know how beautiful you
    And that isn't all right
    Honey, I know you're hurt"
    This also gave me the cheating impression, she doesnt realise she is actully beautiful because he cheated with some other girl
