Oh Chicago
Can you illuminate the skylines?
And let all the liars come down to your core?
'Cause I'm still debating
Whether if I should be waiting
For something more
Or should I just run back to your heart?

'Cause it's three A.M on a Monday morning
And I'm still looking for something that will never be found
That will never be found
And the truth just holds cobwebs
And dreams only come true when your dead
And these smiles just hide the frowns



'Cause I only write tragedies
That's what I do best
And these words just yell and scream
I must love to be depressed
Oh no

I'm Alright, I'm just okay
Wishing on shooting stars have gotten old anyways
And I just got one more prayer left in me
I won't use it on my death bed
I'll die so you can stop crying

Oh, its winter
And it's as cold as where my heart would be
If it was there that would be saying the least
'Cause I'm just a poet that makes a promise
And then writes songs on how he couldn't keep it
On how he couldn't keep it




So don't you worry about me
I'm a musician, I erase my problems with a melody
and I've just tried to live in my dreams
so I don't know a damn thing about reality
Oh no

I'm Alright, I'm just okay
Wishing on shooting stars have gotten old anyways
And I just got one more prayer left in me
I won't use it on my death bed
I'll die so you could stop crying



I stand here alone
With a beating heart in my chest
And this clock ticks and tocks to my dying breath
And I hope it finally comes my ending time
So I could finally say that I timed something right
(I'm Alright)
All I wanted was accomplishment
To show you I was different, I was something, I was better than nothing at all
(I'm just okay)
I've never seen an angel but I swear they look like you
So breath taking
God, I love you
(Wishing on shooting stars have gotten old anyways)
Please don't mistaken me with the man with the words
'Cause you're a swan
And I'm a hummingbird
(I'm alright)
And I've been putting myself down since I was a kid
and it seems that's all I ever did



I stand here alone
With a beating heart in my chest
And this clock ticks and tocks to my dying breath
And I hope it finally comes my ending time
So I could finally say that I timed something right
(I'm Alright)
All I wanted was accomplishment
To show you I was different, I was something, I was better than nothing at all
(I'm just okay)
I've never seen an angel but I swear they look like you
So breath taking
God, I love you
(Wishing on shooting stars have gotten old anyways)
Please don't mistaken me with the man with the words
'Cause you're a swan
And I'm a hummingbird
(I'm alright)
And I've been putting myself down since I was a kid
and it seems that's all I ever did
