It's Okay - BTOB

English Lyrics by Vicky Huang

Verse 1:

Those shoulders look heavy on you

But to lay those heavy burdens down

I know it's so hard to do

They say to take a break

When you feel that your dreams are driftin away

Tell me how is life today?

 

Prechorus:
Do you struggle the same way every day, oooo

Why you doin' this to you?

Don't live for someone else's day

When you're feeling down and think you're alone

Just listen to this song

Chorus:

Remember all your favourite melodies, ooh

The voices flowin' from the radio so free

If there's one thing I can do

Let me sing this song for you

Even when it's hard

It's okay, it's okay,

Everything will be alright

I believe in you

 

(Rap)

These past three years I've wandered

in and out, nobody wants me

I wonder if I should just give up, and live my own dream

I tell my parents, I feel their disappointment

That's why I couldn't tell them about losing my employment


Thought I was doin' so well, I was on the right track

But when midterms came by, oh my marks they dropped right back

My teammates they ignore me, my friends they all desert me, oh

8 billion people for one goal and then

I guess there's little me

 

Loud alarm, jolts me up, rush me from the break of dawn

Brush my teeth, pack up to leave, time chases me like I'm a little fawn

I'm standing at the edge of a cliff, my thoughts trying to lure me in, asking why am I here? What do I do?

Only silence echoes through

 

I'm folded into a paper boat

Floating, aimless, trying to get home

Force down my tears

Swallow my fears

My sighs, getting deeper by the years

I know, this is foolish to do

But somehow I still act like I’m cool

Whenever people ask, I say I'm okay 

(I'm okay, I'm okay)

(My bright past where did you go?)

Chorus:

Remember all your favourite melodies, ooh

The voices flowin' from the radio so free

If there's one thing I can do

Let me sing this song for you

Even when it's hard

It's okay, it's okay,

Everything will be alright

I believe in you

 

Bridge:

All the family that I love

All my friends whom I adore

I haven't seen y'all in so long

Even though we've promised to hang out

It'd be so nice to just have some time, just some free time

For me to get out of this lonely place

Now this song is almost over

There's still so much I haven't covered

Everyone probably feels the same way I do

 

Chorus:

Remember all your favourite melodies, ooh

The voices flowing out the radio so free

The only thing that I can do

Is to sing this song for you

Even when it's hard

It's okay, it's okay, everything will be alright

I believe in you

...I don't think I can thank this song enough. Although many songs have gotten me through rough days, this song has done so the most. It's my go-to song to cry to, because those shoulders of mine felt so heavy, yet its burdens so hard to lay down. I just feel understood by it, you know?

Hang in there, my friend...I believe in you.
