it’s alright lyrics – indigo girls

it’s alright forty days of rain
the skin stretched our from the growing pain
it’d be nice to have an explanation but it’s alright
and it’s alright if you hate that way
hate me ’cause i’m different, hate me ’cause i’m gay
truth of the matter come around one day it’s alright

i look at this life line stretched way all across my hand
i look at the burned out empty like a plague across the land
and for everything i learn there are two i don’t understand
that’s why i’m still on a search through the weather strewn church
i’m doing the best that i can and it’s alright

and it’s alright though we worry and fuss
we can’t get over the hump or get over us
it seems easier to push than to let go and trust but it’s alright
we get a little distance some things get clearer
yeah give ’em the sp*ce some hearts get nearer
ran as hard as i could and still ended up here and it’s alright

so look at this life line stretched way all across my hand
i look at the fires of hatred burning up the bounty of this beautiful land
i know i’m small gone way but i know i’m strong
and it’s my thirst that brought me to the water
when you give it all up then she carries me on, it’s alright, yeah

and it’s alright if you feel afraid
plans in pieces, plans mislaid
it’s the will of the way, will of the way
the will of the only way that could have brought me here today
and it’s alright,
and it’s alright
