"I'll Be Okay" as written by and Clark/wells....
It's time to let you go
It's time to say goodbye
There's no more excuses
No more tears to cry
There's been so many changes
I was so confused
All along you were the one
All the time I never knew
I want you to be happy
You're my best friend
But it's so hard to let you go now
All that could have been
I'll always have the memories
She'll always have you
Fate has a way of changing
Just when you don't want it to

Chorus
Throw away the chains
Let love fly away
Till love comes again
I'll be okay

Life passes so quickly
You gotta take the time
Or you'll miss what really matters
You'll miss all the signs
I've spent my life searching
For what was always there
Sometimes it will be too late
Sometimes it won't be fair

[Chorus:]

I won't give up
I won't give in
I can't recreate what just might have been
I know that my heart will find love again
Now is the time to begin

[Chorus:]
I can't hold on forever baby
I'll be okay

    General CommentI just love this song. I am going through some really hard times with my best friend who is in a new relationship. This song just fits so well with everything I feel right now. I really don't want to walk away but if I have to I know I will be okay.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about a breakup. Possibly they broke up, or were going to be something more, and now she's losing a best friend and maybe a lover to another woman. She's saying she'll be fine and survive, eventually.

    General Commentthis song made me think a lot when i first heard it because it fits perfectly in the situation i'm leaving now. It could be about two friends who fall in love but they know it would never work, and that there's a love bigger than that one for each of them. So they chose just to let go, or at least try. And although it isn't easy, they know they'll be okay, because it's the best for the two of them, or in this case i think, for the one who allready has another love besides this passion. it's a great song :)

    General CommentI love this song, especially the first 4 lines.
    "There's no more excuses
    No more tears to cry"
    I love this bit because I have being making so many excuses so I don't have to face the truth that I have to move on.
    The whole song just seems to fit me so well. (:
