IT'S ALRIGHT TO BE

I could have smiled. It would have been a lie.
I could have laughed. It would have come out like a cry.
I could have shrugged and walked away, as if I didn't care.
I would have faced it every day. It would have followed everywhere.
Now I'm glad to say I'm happy to be free.
Now I know, it's alright to be me.

(Chorus)
It's alright to be me, in touch with what I am.
It's better to be free, doing what we can.
Not pretending through the days, to be what isn't true.
It really is okay, to live the truthful you.
What am I, you ask. Sometimes, I'm not sure.
Just tending to my task , I learn what will endure.
I have to find the truth that's really me,
when what I am, is what I'm meant to be.

I don't like to laugh too loud, or party all-night long.
I like to strum an old guitar, and sing a soulful song.
Sometimes I like to hum an old refrain,
or sit alone, and listen to the rain.
It takes awhile to see what's really true,
and learn to really like just being you.

(Chorus)
Give thanks for the precious Gift, hidden deep within !
Thank Heaven for the lift, to bring it forth again !
At last I've found Life's great discovery ! It's alright to be me !
Not pretending through the days, to be what isn't true.
It really is okay, to live the truthful you.
What am I, you ask. Sometimes, I'm not sure.
Just tending to my task , I learn what will endure.
It's alright to be me !
It's alright to be free.
It's alright to BE !
