Don't think too hard, if you think it hurts that bad
Don't talk about it, don't let it get you down
It's only one part, of the story
Just let it go, don't let this get you down now.

Sing the last thing on your mind
The last word on your breath
I'll be the one to keep you, keep you at your best
The last thing on your mind
'Cause I don't need your mess
I'll be the one to keep you one disaster less

Straighten up your tie, take the microphone
Forget about it, don't let it get you down
Now is not the time, and you're not alone
Shut up about it, no one can bring you down now

I'll be okay, if you're okay

    I think this song is just more than someone else helping someone. I think it has to do with finding what makes you happy and how to help yourself. & How to move forward being the best you can be.

    Lights is saying if something hurts don't think about it. Straighten yourself up, sing, forget, be strong and don't let nothing bring you down. Now and never should be the time of thinking negatively, and your not alone when your heads down.
