I'm Not Okay (I Promise)
Well if you wanted honesty
That's all you had to say
I never want to let you down or have you go
It's better off this way

For all the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took
Remember when you broke your foot
From jumping out the second floor?

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
You wear me out

What will it take to show you
That it's not the life it seems?
(I'm not okay)
I've told you time and time again
You sing the words but
(I'm not okay)
Don't know what it means

To be a joke and look
Another line without a hook
I held you close as we both shook
For the last time
Take a good hard look

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
You wear me out
(I'm not)

Forget about the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took
You said you'd read me like a book
But the pages all are torn and frayed

I'm okay
I'm okay
I'm okay now
(I'm okay now)

But you really need to listen to me
Because I'm telling you the truth
I mean this
I'm okay
(Trust me)

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
Well, I'm not okay
I'm not o-fucking-kay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay-kay
