about

I was a fan of Tom Petty's Damn The Torpedoes when it came out in '79 and have always admired his ability to write a great song, even when I don't like it haha.

"Into The Great Wide Open" is one of those that I don't like so much but I can't help but admire because the story is good. It's like Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane", it drives you crazy but you can't help but like it because you get attached to the characters and their story. And of course it has a great hook.

I wanted to write a 'coming of age' story with "It's Alright, It's OK" only after starting with two characters, I decided to let them go and make it about all of us.

lyrics

It’s Alright (Gladstone/Girio)

Sam told mom she was out for the day
First bus, hitched the rest of the way
Three days later she was broke in LA
Don’t worry its alright, she’s ok

Wait's on the bench for a chance to play
Gets the nod for the final play
A suicide pass, we can only pray
Don’t worry its alright, he’s ok
Don’t worry its alright, he’s ok

Chorus
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok
It’s alright it’s ok

Best-laid plans can change in a day
When two way streets become one way
When compromise is the only way
Don’t worry it’s alright, we’re ok

Laugh or cry when there’s nothing to say
Take your time try another way
Change your mind come another day
Don’t worry its alright you’re ok
Don’t worry its alright you’re ok

Chorus

Solo

Chorus X 2

Acapela: It’s alright it’s ok!
