"I'll Be OK" as written by and Vollelunga Mark Anthony Hawkins Jonathan Taylor....
We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can't keep anything you take
Lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
To not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be okay

How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open

With open hearts, despite the stakes
We take a chance on our mistakes
A brand new day, we will embrace
An open wound that heals with grace
All the fears that we will face
In this time, and in this place
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be okay

How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open

I'll be okay

I'll be okay

We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can't keep anything you take
The lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
Is to not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be ok

How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open (how do you love when your heart is broken?)

I'll be okay (how do you love when your heart is broken?)
I'll be okay (how do you love when your heart is broken?)
I'll be okay, be okay (when your heart is broken?)
I'll be okay, I'll be okay, okay, I'll be okay (how do you love when your heart is broken?)

(We live in the rain)

    My InterpretationThe meaning of the song is very obvious: trying to move on after having your heart broken. It can be anything, end of a relationship, death of a friend, death of a family member, but naturally the vast majority of us will relate to having our heart broken from that one person you cannot live without leaving you. I just heard about these guys earlier this year after the relationship with the love of my life ended so suddenly and unexpectedly. She was my world, and I wanted to marry that girl someday. This song spoke volumes to me, and I just broke down while listening to the soaring chorus. The atmosphere the band creates is absolutely chilling, and Jonny Hawkins' unbelievable vocals rip the emotions right out of you, just as the one that got away did. "How DO you love when your heart is broken?" The answer is you can't, but songs like these help us heal and know that we are not alone, so that one day we CAN "learn to heal with a heart wide open". One of the best songs I've ever had the pleasure of hearing.
