"We Are Okay" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin....
We are grown but cannot see
Lost our world of make believe
Simple times now seem so far
Used to be in my backyard
Yeah, the world was still in my backyard

But, we are okay, we are alright
We sing very loud,
Yeah, we're singing
We are okay, we are alright
Close our eyes, close our mouth
Yeah, we shut our eyes though we're in doubt

Build me a home from a cardboard box
Many windows never locked
This is how we used to play
Shorter nights and longer days
With faith we would not fade away

But we are okay, we are alright
We sing very loud
Yeah, we're singing
We are okay, we are alright
Close our eyes, close our mouth
Yeah we shut our eyes though we're in doubt

And so it goes
We can never seem to find, the time we lost
Though we try at any cost
We try, we sing

We are okay, we are alright
We sing very loud
Yeah, we're singing
We are okay, we are alright
Close our eyes, close our mouth
Yeah we shut our eyes though we're in doubt

    General CommentThis song makes me want to take a roadtrip with the windows down with someone who doesn't mind if you sing at the top of your lungs to crappy songs that you secretly like.

    General CommentAt his March concert in Cinci this year, Joshua said this song is about innocence and going about losing it. He also said many of his songs are obviously not dancing songs and he wanted to create one that people could move to a bit.
