I'm alright

1 past 8, the morning news has already begun
I turn it on and off again
I only want to feel the sun
They would talk about all the things they want
And the goals they try to achieve
Me, I've got a head full of barricades and the toughest one is fear

When I ask you how do you do
You say I'm fine, what about you


Oh, you won't understand
All the thoughts in my head
So I say
Oh, oh, oh, oh
A red light in my mind
Stops me every time
So I say, oh oh oh oh
I'm alright
I'm alright

You, you want to be tougher than the rest
And I would like to know what's going on in your head
You're always laughing, joking, cheering
But there is so much we can't see
The fire in my heart reminds me
Who I want to be

When I ask you how do you do
You say I'm fine, what about you


Oh, you won't understand
All the thoughts in my head
So I say
Oh, oh, oh, oh
A red light in my mind
Stops me every time
So I say, oh oh oh oh

What do we get by pretending, pretending
Nothing more nothing less than pretending, pretending

Oh you won't understand
All the thoughts in my head
So I say
Oh, oh, oh, oh
A red light in my mind
Stops me every time
So I say, oh oh oh oh


Oh you won't understand
All the thoughts in my head
So I say, oh oh oh oh
A red light in my mind
Stops me every time
So I say, oh oh oh oh
I'm alright
I'm alright
I'm alright
