PROMT: I’m alright

collaboration welcome

Lyrics: 

V1
dark days
of history
haunt souls
hurt hearts

dark nights
of misery
cause tears
trash dreams

life is good
is just a fallacy
it seems

C
but I’m alright
chasing the light
following the sun
to grow what has begun
to learn from what was done

yeah I’m alright
and want what is right
for them and for you...ooo...too...
what is right for us

V2
dark words
of cowards
bend minds
break hopes

dark acts
of power
build walls
kill lives

life is fair
is just a delusion
of lies

C
but I’m alright
chasing the light
following the sun
to grow what has begun
to learn from what was done

yeah I’m alright
and want what is right
for them and for you...ooo...too....
what is right for us

B
there are no easy answers
there are no magic cures
the work ahead is hard
but we must all endure
with hope grace and dignity
respecting different thoughts
and embracing positi...vi..ty...

C
and I’m alright
chasing the light
following the sun
to grow what has begun
to learn from what was done

yeah I’m alright
and want what is right
for them and you...ooo...too...
what is right for us

I like the slightly chopped lines. Its also a lyric of hope. Nice skirmish

Despite the darkness in a majority of the lyrics, this reads positive.

a great sentiment here, nicely expressed. i did this challenge, a bit late, and also went 'sociopolitical' so to speak...

I like the darkness of the verses and the encouraging tone of the choruses. Nicely done indeed

You paint a bleak picture in the verses but that resolute inner strength shows through on the chorus. The bridge is the highlight, though.

I like how the chorus starts with changing yourself, and then focuses on the outer world. Most people people miss that bit. And that bridge! Afuckingmen!
