IT'S OKAY

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  I'd love to hold you
                 and not just look at your face.
                 now that I've told you,
                 must I also erase
                 all the pain,
                 all the pain
                 your old love made you feel?
                 or should I wait
                 for all the wounds to heal?

            II.  have you decided
                 you never will love again?
                 as if your pride could
                 be the same as a friend?
                 only love,
                 only love
                 can take the place of love.
                 and any other truth
                 is just pretend.

      BRIDGE A:  you're in the middle,
                 in the middle
                 of a bridge to me.
                 come on over,
                 come on over.
                 leave your life's debris.

      BRIDGE B:  I am waiting,
                 still waiting
                 like a roadside dog.
                 I am barking,
                 still barking
                 this one-track monologue.

            II.  maybe you're thinkin'
                 I know my line by heart.
                 but I'm not a phony
                 like you meet at the singles bar.
                 it's just me,
                 and there's just you
                 smiling as if to say:
                 come on and touch me,
                 come on and touch me,
                 come on and touch me,
                 it's okay!
                 all right.
                 okay!
