I'll Be Okay, Right?

I'll Be Okay, Right?

I'll be okay, right?

You're who I think of at night

When it's quiet and I'm alone.

I'll be okay, right?


It's your sweater I'm clutching tight

To catch a whiff of your cologne.

I'll be okay, right?

I'm being torn apart in a fight

Of whether or not to call your phone.

I'll be okay, right?


Nervously my fingernails I bite

As I rethink my decision on hearing the dial tone.

I'll be okay, right?

The possibility that you might answer is slight

But when you do, off guard I'm thrown.

I'll be okay, right?


Cause I feel like a high-soaring kite

The excitement in my bones.

I'll be okay, right?

I hear your words; they are filled with spite

And your heart has turned to stone.

I'll be okay, right?


My face has turned white

From the hate, you've shown.

I'll be okay, right?

I'm standing at a height

Waiting and wanting to be blown by the foehn.

I'll be okay, right?


I'm seeing a bright white light

It's taking me deeper into the unknown.

I'll be okay, right?

Now it's been a fortnight

And I'm beginning to accept my plight

Thinking of the chances I've blown.
