Mary Chapin Carpenter – It’s Ok To Be Sad Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It's OK to be sad
It's alright to be lonely
You won't always feel bad
Somebody told me
These feelings like weather, they come and they go
Today I felt better, tomorrow who knows

[Chorus]
Could there be healing instead
Instead of breaking, I'm hoping
That the cracks beginning to spread
Is me breaking open
And if I let everything in
The shadows as well as the light
How else could I know I'm alright?
How else would I know?

[Verse 2]
It's OK to be tired
f*ck all the excuses
Whatever's required
There's no day that's useless
What's hollow and empty
What's lost and undone
What can and what can't be
Is how you become
[Chorus]

Could there be beauty instead
Instead of breaking your hope and
That the cracks beginning to spread
Is the way you break open
And if you let everything in
The shadows as well as the light
How else could you know you're alright?
How else would you know?

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
Could there be healing instead
Instead of breaking, we're hoping
That the cracks beginning to spread
Is the way we break open
Could there be loving instead
Instead of breaking, we're hoping
That the cracks beginning to spread
Is the way we break open
And when we let everything in
The shadows as well as the light
That's how we know we're alright
That's how we know
