"It's Ok" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
It's OK
Love is only meant for some
I'm the rock
The shoulder you can cry on
I keep the walls from falling down
I keep the walls from falling down
I keep the walls from falling down

I'll play it straight
While you laugh and drink and party all night long
I'll designate myself
To be the driver who takes you home
I keep the walls from falling down
I keep the walls from falling down

You can be pretty and tragic
I'll try to keep the walls from falling down
You can be beautiful and fabulous
I'll try to keep the walls from falling down
I can't reach the pain you feel
But I'll try to keep the walls from falling down
If you can hold on
Lose your fear
I'll try to keep the walls from falling down
Falling down
Falling down

Where is your saint?
To let you know you're not alone
To bring you peace
Help me be your friend your confidante
And keep the walls from falling down
Keep the walls from falling down
Keep the walls from falling down

    General CommentI think this song is talking about, a loyal friend. Who is always(I'm the rock) (I'll designate myself) there for her friend, and is always ready to give this friend comfort when the person is going through pain. She’s her friend’s shoulder to cry on EVEN when this person get’s a broken heart (It's OK , Love is only meant for some), "EVEN" because while she’s giving comfort to this person, she’s actually giving comfort to herself, because she obviously feels more than friendship for this person, who doesn’t even take note of it( I'll play it straight, While you laugh and drink and party all night long...)
