Everything's OK

If I say it enough, I might believe it.

Life is good.

Perhaps now this pain will fade,

Maybe now my eyes will be dry of tears

And my heart will be put back together.

Maybe all this suffering I've been forced to witness,

Will just disappear.

And I can plaster a false smile

And let go all that I've ever held dear.

Life is good.

Perhaps now I am numb

To everything around me.

Maybe now nobody is alone

And everybody has someone

To love and to hold.

Everything's OK.

I think I might actually believe it,

Now that I've said it

Every day of my life.
