I’m Alright - Music & Lyrics by Joe Skager

Subtle and sweet, you've got the poor boy on his knees.
Another beggar, that's what I won't beg to be.
I thought I caught you once. You're clever as you are young,
but I keep trying to cage your love like you're an animal.

My brothers and sisters (they say I'm alright) is that a hint of deception?
My mother and father (they say I'm alright) Am I a fool to think otherwise?

I'm getting old. Where does the time go?
I feel like I've stepped into a portal.
Stepped out 21 years old. I am not much to behold.
My high standards are bold, while my eye wanders for gold.

My brothers and sisters (they say I'm alright) is that a hint of deception?
My mother and father (they say I'm alright) Am I a fool to think otherwise?

I’m a helpless wrecking ball, but I don’t mean to hurt a soul.

It's over and ended the same. It's your love that couldn't be tamed.
It's on to a new city and into a picture frame.
Shame shame. I’m better at this or at least I'll entertain the thought.
Then write it all off as I knew you'd never remain.

I'm a helpless wrecking ball.
I enjoy the height of the fall and the depth of the hole,
but I don't mean to hurt a soul.

Brothers, Sisters, Mothers, Fathers.
We are all right.
