"She Says It's Alright" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
Return to the city, lookin' for a friend
She shouldn't be too hard to find
There's only one or two places she could be
Especially this time of night
I didn't tell her I'm in town or I'd be coming 'round
I'm steppin' into her work
She greets me casually, yeah; hands me a drink
I wait till six in the morning for her
She says it's alright
That ya haven't written or been here for a while
(I've been here for a while)
Just grab your things and come on over
Stay with me at my house (Stay with me)
She says it's alright, yeah
It's half past four, the afternoon
Oh, we wake up
There's no phones to disturb us
Lazing around, isolated from all of the fuss
She smokes a couple hundred cigarettes and hands me the keys
Oh, while she gets ready for work
Be back at seven in the morning to let her in
That's about when she returns
She says it's alright
That you don't speak the language
I know that you barely try
(I know you barely try)
I love The Smiths and my cigarettes
Like you in my bed
But I don't need you to get by (Don't need you)
She says it's alright, yeah
I'm sure you wanted to forget about things for a while
As I see how you see
How we see
Let me see
She says it's alright
That you're going to the states and ya won't be back for awhile
(I won't be back for a while)
She says it's alright with you
It's alright without you
Either way is just fine (Either way you're not mine)
She says it's alright (It's alright, alright)
I don't expect to hear from you, but you're welcome back anytime
Unless I find a new friend, then this will have to end (It's alright)
We don't need no goodbyes
She says it's alright
She says alright
It's alright

    General CommentI love this song. Especially the part about how he's "going to the states and he won't be back for awhile" he just met this European friend and everything's fine when he's there and when he's not. it's spiffy

    General Commentmore people need to love the rentals. this is an awesome song, about having a friend that you don't see or talk to for a long time, and you don't need to, cause things are still the same.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl that you meet that you can always count on to be there for you, even though you arent really that close. They know they wont see eachother very often at all, and shes says thats alright with her, but he ever needs something shes there to help him out.

    General CommentThis song was probably written about Matt Sharp's girlfriend in Spain, but I think the idea and lyrics are very universal, and incredibly relatable.

    I've always interpreted this song to be about 2 people that are sleeping with each other, but likely don't really love each other. This is a song about being with a girl, but makes no references to love at all. They are just 2 friends that hookup when he's in town, but he isn't making any further effort. She's says "it's alright" because she doesn't really have feelings for him either. That is, she likes him in the bed, but doesn't need him there.

    The song perfectly captures the feeling of being in your early to mid-20's, trying to figure your life out, and not having the time (or desire) to be in love. But you still crave human contact, and sex, because you don't want to be alone. Like I said, it's very relatable.

    I also think that the line "it's alright" is kind of a double-meaning, implying that their friendship/relationship is just alright. You know, it's not great, but it's alright.

    Great song.
