I am okay

I am okay

Lyrics: 

I´m okay…

Don´t look at me the way you do,
don´t ask me how I am…
I´ll tell you things that are not true
while the old tape spins in my head again…

Don´t ask me how I spend my days…
all is great, all is new…
what do you expect me to say
when you see all I cannot hide from you…?

(Chorus)
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
just bliss and rainbows come my way,
I am happy, I am lucky, I can say:
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…

I´ve worn-out trousers, an old hat,
a pair of holey shoes…
yes, I just wanted them like that,
all is really fine since I´m not with you…

There´s just sunshine and fireworks,
don´t ask me how I do…
and don´t worry, I did not lurk,
I (just) happened to take the same way like you…

(Chorus)
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
just bliss and rainbows come my way,
I am happy, I am lucky, I can say:
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…

(Bridge)
So next time,
don´t ask me as I am fine,
just keep moving,
I`ll be fine… yes… I´ll be fine…

(Chorus)
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
just bliss and rainbows come my way,
I am happy, I am lucky, I can say:
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…

I don't know how you do it. It sounds so sarcastic but I can't really point at anything and say it's because of that.

It's so over the top. Maybe someone could really be like that? Biggrin Is it the contrast with "okat" and "bliss and rainbows"?

Fun stuff, man! Somebody needs to catch this jewel.

This would be quite a naff song if not for the irony. But to hear someone lie to themselves in such a twee manner is a little heartbreaking. Well done.

Nice one Arthur, I'm working on it (but I don't mind if anybody else also uses these lyrics). I hope to finish it this Saturday.

I dont think it sounds sarcastic at al, rather the narrator struggles to get off the thoughts about that someone. Great lyrics Arthur, you are an awesome lyricist
