You don't need to cry
You don't need to shout
Paint on the front door
Or write in the clouds
I had a moments fear
That you can put to flight
Just reassure me
That we're alright

Are we alright?
Are we still strong?
This is our last chance
Let's not get it wrong.

Cos I will hold my breath
I will count to ten
When I open my eyes
I will ask again

So don't make me beg
Don't make me plead
Leave me with some dignity
I will stay cool and calm tonight
I just need to know if we are still alright
You know it won't take much
TO turn black to white
Just one gentle touch

I've been awake for hours
I didn't sleep last night
Darling tell me
Are we alright?

Are we still all right
Are we still strong
Here's one last chance
Let's not get it wrong

I will hold my breath
I will count to ten
When I open my eyes
I will ask again

Are we alright
Are we alright
Darling tell me that we're alright

    General CommentSongnotes from the album: A throw away comment turned into song. Someone said after a recent concert that if you have to ask the question "are we alright?" then its probably too late to save the situation. Maybe, I'm not sure.
