OK (Anxiety Anthem)

Album: High Expectations (2019)
  • Wake up with a knot in my chest
    Tried everything just to get out of bed
    It's ain't working, it ain't working
    Sometimes I can get like this
    Cover it up with a smile on my face
    But I'm hurting, I'm still hurting

    There are days when the world gets heavy
    Sleepless nights, I've had way too many
    When it's late and no one's around, around
    Alone in my room and the tears start pouring
    Wishing the night was still the morning
    But tonight, I'ma let them fall down, fall down

    'Cause it's okay not to be okay
    It's okay if you feel the pain
    Don't gotta wipe your tears away
    Tomorrow's another day
    It's okay not to be okay
    It's fine, you're allowed to break
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    Everything's gonna be okay
    Okay
    Okay
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    Everything's gonna be okay
    Okay

    Look at you, look at me
    We all going through it if you look beyond the surface
    Beyond the surface
    So what do I do?
    Just wear it on my sleeve
    Maybe then, maybe then you'd believe that I'm hurting (that I'm hurting)
    That I'm hurting, mmm (that I'm hurting)

    There are days when the world gets heavy
    Sleepless nights, I've had way too many
    And it feels like there's no way out, way out (there's no way out, no)
    Alone in my room and the tears stop pouring
    Wishing the night was still the morning
    But tonight, I'ma let them fall down, fall down

    'Cause it's okay not to be okay
    It's okay if you feel the pain
    Don't gotta wipe your tears away
    Tomorrow's another day
    It's okay not to be okay
    It's fine, you're allowed to break (oh oh)
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    Everything's gonna be okay (everything's gonna be okay)
    Okay

    I know, I know, I know, I know
    It's not easy
    But you know, you know, you know, you know
    That it gets easier
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    It's not easy (Mm)
    But you know, you know, you know, you know
    That it gets easier

    'Cause it's okay not to be okay
    It's okay if you feel the pain
    Don't gotta wipe your tears away
    Tomorrow's another day
    It's okay not to be okay
    It's fine, you're allowed to break
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    Everything's gonna be okay
    Okay
    It's gonna be, gonna be, gonna be
    Okay
    Gonna be, gonna be, gonna be
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    It's gonna be, it's gonna be, it's gonna be okay
    Cause it's okay not to be okay
    It's fine, you're allowed to break (allowed to break)
    As long as you know, as long as you know
    Everything's gonna be okay (everything's gonna be okay)

    I know, I know, I know, I know (oh no)
    It's not easy (no)
    But you know, you know, you know, you know
    That it gets easier (it gets easier)
    I know, I know, I know, I know
    It's not easy (what you know?)
    But you know, you know, you know, you know
    That it gets easier Writer/s: Mabel Mcvey, Maria Hazell, Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike
