about

This is a song about when I hit a very low point during college. I was grappling with the idea of coming back to Jackle App to make more music but I was plagued by anxious thoughts about what would happen. Luckily my partner was there with some good advice, taken almost verbatim and written as the choruses of this song!

lyrics

My eyes have seen a million things up until this moment
I’m blind and bound by silver wings keeping my arms open
I felt a halo on your head
Can’t quite hear what you said

You said it’s all right, don’t break a sweat
You said it’s okay, just start again

I tried to make my feelings sing but I lost my courage
I lied and wept to ease my pain but the guilt resurfaced
I know it won’t get me ahead
I think that’s what you said

You said it’s all right, don’t be afraid
You said it’s okay, just start again
You said it’s all right, don’t be afraid
You said it’s okay, just start again

I saw the ground rushing towards me faster than
the thought that found its way into my mind
the pressure blocked the sound of someone telling me to look up

I know the way I’m going might be weird to someone from a place
that I have never seen before but
that’s okay, ‘cause I know will never get stuck

You said it’s all right, don’t be afraid
You said it’s okay, just start again
You said it’s all right, don’t be afraid
You said it’s okay, just start again. ►
