  1. Not Alright

Lyrics

Not Alright

I thought that I could plot my course then make it all alone
The pilot’s seat is where I had to be
But when I took off on my own, I always crashed and burned
It took so many failed attempts to learn

Chorus
I am not alright, not alright without you
Without you, I don’t even know who I am
I am not alright, not alright without you
But I am better than alright holding your hand.

I thought I had to find myself on someone else’s terms
And let them tell me who I’m supposed to be
And I defined myself by trophies I could earn
Instead of by the one who created me, but…

Chorus

Bridge
I’m alright, yeah alright
When I find myself in you and not in me
And it’s alright, yeah alright
To trust you with the things that I can’t see

Chorus
