               It's alright.           There comes a time.

     sl.
Aadd2 / Badd4              Aadd2    Badd4                    Aadd2
              Got no patience   to search for peace of mind.

              No more hiding or disguising truths I sold.


2. verse

It's okay. Had a bad day.
Hands are bruised from breaking rocks all day.
Drained and blue, I bleed for you.
You think it's funny, well, you're drowning in it too.

3. verse

Yeah, it's fine. We'll walk down the line.
Leave our rain, a cold trade for warm sunshine.
You my friend, I will defend.
And if we change, well, I love you anyway.
