I've been weak and I've been strong. So far I've made it through OK. But without her? I'm not so sure how I'd be. I'm glad I have her.

lyrics

I've Been OK
© 2010 by Paul Dunne and Dean Brantley Taylor

I’ve been weak. I’ve been strong
I was lonely for so long
I’ve been free. I’ve been caged
I’ve been calm. I’ve been enraged
And I’ve run hard and barely crawled
I’ve gone far, yet sometimes stalled
I’ve lived some good days
I’ve lived some bad
But I’ve been OK, been OK

I never thought I’d find you
I never thought I’d find love
But now that I have, I think back
There’s one thing I’m not sure of
Would I still be OK
Without you, without you

I’ve been bored, then enthralled
Mistaken big for small
I’ve taken time, hurried too
I’ve been happy. I’ve been blue
But all the way, unbeknown to me
I got away, livin’ without you
I warmed in sunshine
I froze in rain
But I’ve been OK, been OK

I never thought I’d find you
I never thought I’d find love
But now that I have, I think back
There’s one thing I’m not sure of
Would I still be OK
Without you, without you

It’s taken so long to find you
I need you to stay
I don’t know what I’d do
If you ever went away

I’ve been scared. I’ve been brave
I’ve been secure. I’ve been afraid
I’ve felt peace. I’ve been stressed
I’ve kept it clean. I made a mess
And I done right and I’ve done wrong
I’d resist then play along
I’ve been rich
And I’ve been poor
But I’ve been OK, been OK

I never thought I’d find you
I never thought I’d find love
But now that I have, I think back
There’s one thing I’m not sure of
Would I still be OK? Would I still be OK
Would I still be OK? Without you, without you
