It's alright if you cry and cover your eyes
It's ok if you scream like a girl
I won't tell anyone if you promise the same
'Cause I'm scared of the whole world
It's alright if you sigh. Put your head next to mine
It's ok if you curl up in a ball
cause I might give it a try and end in the same
Condition after all

(It goes)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Is it alright if I'm sad and feeling let down
Is it ok if I'm not myself again
Will you love me the same if i promise to breathe
And count from 1 to 10
Is it alright if I lose track of the world
Is it ok if I hide from the unknown
Will you tell me again the story about
how I'm not alone

(it goes)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

walk away from the life you want
and sing the chorus of the broken hearted

    General CommentAs I sit here and listen to this on a Sunday morning, I can't help but to feel almost overwhelmed, hearing this song and wishing I was back home and with the ones I love, and not stuck here with this song speaking worlds to me of exact feelings and situations. They say college is the time of your life and the place you find your love......well all I have managed to find with my last semester rolling along is the last two lines of this song, the life I want, with a loving wife and settling down, and the life that seems to be running its course of feeling obsolete and alone.

    And, I'm kinda wondering how nobody has found this band and how I managed to be the first comment on a wonderful song.

    General CommentNo idea how a song as beautiful as this can only have 2 comments (or 3 after I post this).
    I think the meaning is pretty straight forward. It's about letting down your guard. It's ok for you to cry. It's ok for you to be scared. It's ok for you not to be strong all the time. We're only human.
