"Alright" as written by and John Ondrasik....
I took her leaving like I did before
I turned around and I asked for more
And she didn't even mean a thing to me

I left my spirit at the chapel door
I sailed around til I lost the war
And you didn't even think to send a thing

But I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing more

I hit my head upon the chamber door
And all the marbles rolled on the floor
And all the psychos in the ward start screaming

I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing more

My baby

I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing more

    General CommentHmm...I'm thinking maybe this guy loved a girl who never loved him back. And he's pretending to not care because of his pride, but really he's dying inside. He's saying he's alright, but it's in a very sarcastic tone.

    General CommentI read an article that said this song is about a man slowly losing his sanity after his split from his significant other. I guess that would explain the "psychos in the ward."

    General CommentI see another meaning. Maybe he's arguing both sides, he feels good that he's free of this girl and can start to move on, but at the same time, he misses her and feels lonely.
