"It'll Be Alright" as written by and Sally Mary Seltmann....
This time it's not about you
So tired but what can you do?
Last night I wanted to say move on
Look on the brighter side
But your eyes never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See them try to tell you
It'll be alright
Did not think you'd leave it this long
Work hard or maybe you've got nothing to say
Please call I'm begging you to
Forgot I never got back to you
And your eyes never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See them try to tell you
It'll be alright
And when you're all alone

You catch your breath
You save yourself
You save yourself
It's easy if you'd only tried
It's easy
But your eyes never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See them try to tell you
It'll be allright
I thought you'd call
I thought you'd changed
But why expect oh so much from your friends
I know who you are
And you know who I am
Is that not enough?

    General Commentno! those parts are stupid. but i actually enjoy the early "but your eyes..." bit when the music fades away and stops.

    General CommentI cannot relate to this song more if I tried. I feel this song is about someone who has a friend who is depressed and wants to help them. I can't count the lines from this song that my friends have said to me when I went through my depression. Such a real song.
    "I know who you are, and you know who I am. Is that not enough?" Wow. One of the best lyrics I've ever heard.

    General Commenti can definitely relate with this as well...

    while i was going through a serious bout of self-injury, i would never call my friends. and i know this is the way they thought about me. they didn't know what to do for me, and they always hoped that loving me would be enough.

    great song.

    General CommentI believe this is about depression as well.

    "and your eyes never seem to open
    there's a whole world outside"
    I think that line is saying how person always focuses on negatives. and they need to open their eyes.
    so many people i know only focus and negatives.
    and it is frustrating.
    completly frustrating

    General Commentyou want to help but there's nothing you can do....
    some people would rather live in the sadness

    "I thought you'd call
    I thought you'd changed
    but why expect oh so much from your friends
    I know who you are
    and you know who I am
    is that not enough?"
