I close my eyes and pray that God will take me up
Let me hide in sleep from life after you
And the lightning strikes, the world's alight and it wakes me up
From a dream that I had built around you

But it's alright, oh
It's alright, oh
Won't you tell me it's alright, alright, and it's not my fault

I recall she said that if I left I would go alone
She wouldn't have the strength to follow me
And now I'm gone so alone is what i chose to be
But I didn't choose this life, I told her, it chose me

But it's alright, oh
Won't you tell me you're alright, oh
But nothing is alright, alright and it's all my fault

We don't have to stay here for long
We can let the storm pass and after, we're gone
And I won't be scared if you won't be scared
No I won't be scared if you won't be scared
Tonight

Alright, oh
Won't you tell me you're alright, oh
But you tell me I'm wrong, and I know that I'm right
I'm left in the dark, won't you show me the light
If you're leaving at all you can leave it tonight oh
