Words and music: Jerin Falkner and Scott Andrew


For all the times I was less than perfect
and every person who would say I deserved it
for every moment I was all but convinced things were
never gonna get better
for every day they made me feel like a failure
and all the damage that would do to me later
the guilt it never leaves
but these thoughts aren't breaking me

I don't need a reason to feel this way
I'll put it back together, maybe not today
so don't say it’s alright
things ain’t always gonna be alright
and I don't believe there's a need for doubt
things are gonna happen, maybe not right now
so don't say it’s alright
things ain’t always gonna be alright

For all the years that I felt that I wasted
the realization that I cannot replace them
for every whispering voice in my head that
ever stopped me from trying
for every stupid thing I ever would say
for all the good it would have done me anyway
I say ain’t nothing I can do
so I wrote this song for you


There’s beauty in the breakdown
when you can build it back again
no there is no time to waste
thinking about what might have been
and they say do what you love
and they say love what you do
but don’t expect it to always come back
it don't come back to you

People on the street let me hear you say
it’s alright, it's alright
whatever it takes to make you feel that way
it’s alright
