We'll Be All Right

I find signs, when you say I'm fine, of breaking down
So when I see you around
I hope I'm like sunshine
And make you wake up

You've got the world on a string
You're smarter than you think, I swear
But there's a war I can see
Brewing in your mind, I can hear the shells

Don't be scared
of the world out there
Don't be scared
of the world outside of your mind
you've got to beat it up

You've got to be a fool
You've got to be a star
You've got to be someone
So dance like it's prom and you're back home with everyone

Where you could be a fool
Where you could be a star
Where you could be someone

I see everything that you could be
I see behind the lies that you tell yourself at night
when you can't sleep
I see beyond the way that you can't seem
to see yourself as a full of worth
You're a valuable person
I used to hate myself
I used to hate my voice and my body
and the way I interacted at parties
I hated the way that I thought
I hated the way that I felt that I wasn't
what people wanted
like I just never belonged
There's this memory of mine
Where I'm laying in a bathroom thinking suicide
Thinking who am I?
I should not survive
It was embarrassing to breathe
I felt pathetic even thinking
This shame just took over my whole being
Where I felt that my life was an insult to those who loved me
But here I am, stronger for it
I'll save a spot for you

I'll be alright
I'll be alright
We'll be alright
We'll be alright

I don't think people understand
I think happiness can be more of a choice
There is hope in the world, I think
It's all about how you look at it
