  • I said to myself:
    Self,
    Why are you awake again?
    It's one a.m.
    Standin' with the fridge wide open, starin'
    Such a sight, fluorescent light
    The stars are bright
    Might make a wish
    If I believed in that shit
    But as it is I might watch T.V.
    Cause it's nice to see
    That people can be more messed up more me

    I say to myself
    As I smile at the wall
    Just let myself fall

    [Chorus]
    It's gonna be all right
    No matter what they say
    It's gonna be a good day
    Just wait and see
    It's gonna be all right
    Cause I'm all right with me
    It's gonna be, it's gonna be
    It's gotta be

    I shiver, shut the door
    Can't think standin' here no more
    I'm alone, my mind's racing heart breaking
    Can you be everything I need you to be?
    Can you protect me like a daughter?
    Love me like a father?
    Can you drink me like water?
    Say I'm like the desert
    Just way hotter

    The point of it all
    Is that if I should fall
    It's still your name I call

    [Chorus]

    As long as we

    Laugh out loud
    Laugh like we are mad
    Cause this crazy mixed up beauty is all that we have
    Because what's love
    But an itch we can't scratch,
    A joke we can't scratch?
    God, but we still laugh.

    Get back in bed
    Turn off the T.V.
    You say it'll be all right, baby
    Just wait and see

    [Chorus]

    I'm awake again
    It's one a.m.
    Staring
    Such a sight
    Well, at least the stars are bright Writer/s: GREG WELLS, JEWEL KILCHER, KARA E. DIOGUARDI
