It's Gonna Be Okay

From the album Peter Alsop Buy Now

   I think relationships are the laboratories for us to figure out what "stuff" we're supposed to be working on in this world of ours.  John Lee, author of "The Flying Boy" once told me, "I can get out of a relationship, go off and rent a house in the desert and pull myself totally together!  I might live there for 3 years, and everything's going fine, ... then, ... in the first nano-second I get back into a relationship, I'm right back where I left off!"  So I figure, as long as it's not abusive; as long as there's a flicker of love alive, as long as I'm not just repeating a pattern of being stubborn about getting what I want, without regarding what my partner needs, then I just keep pluggin' away at it, and we'll all learn the lessons we need to learn.  Relationships are "where the rubber meets the road"!

 

IT'S GONNA BE OKAY

Intro lick:

 

 

No one said love would be easy

I admit it don’t look good right now

But we’ll get through this, like the last one

We always seem to make it through somehow

              

 

Cho: It’s gonna be okay, I know it will

As long as we can stay together                                          

It’s gonna be okay

It’s an old trick of time                                                        

He keeps movin’ our finish line                                           

 

 

So please don’t cry

You know that tears won’t wash things clear

Love’s a trail that we have to try

We may get lost, but we’ve got each other here

Chorus

 

Break:                                                                                                                                              

 

 

 

 

When the present gets uncomfortable

And tomorrow seems too far away

I hear you sigh like Old December

Close your eyes and remember what we used to say

 

Cho:  It’s gonna be okay, I know it will

As long as we can stay together

It’s gonna be okay

You got to roll with the waves today

It’s gonna be okay, I know it will

As long as we can stay together

It’s gonna be okay
