Verse 1

You're been through worse days and nights,

Through feelings of hopelessness, inner fights.

I wasn't around to tell you this back then,

But now I want you to know that it's alright.

Chorus

And I know my words won't change a thing,

So I'll just shut up and hold your hand,

Distract you from all your problems every day,

Take you with me to my fantasy land.

And I know I can't make your life all better,

But I can give you the strength to fight.

I wasn't around, baby, to tell you this before,

Now I want you to know it's alright.

Verse 2

I know you're not comfortable in your skin.

But trust me, you haven't changed from within.

It's just a cloud that's covering up your sky.

It'll go away, trust me, it's just a temporary thing.

Chorus

And I know my words won't change a thing,

So I'll just shut up and hold your hand,

Distract you from all your problems every day,

Take you with me to my fantasy land.

And I know I can't make your life all better,

But I can give you the strength to fight.

I wasn't around, baby, to tell you this before,

Now I want you to know it's alright.

Bridge

You've forgotten just how strong you are.

You bottled up your pain and threw away the jar

So many times before.

Look at where you were when you were twenty-three,

Look at where you are now, you've got me.

And I promise I won't let you lose your way.

I wasn't around before, but I'm here today.

Chorus

And I know my words won't change a thing,

So I'll just shut up and hold your hand,

Distract you from all your problems every day,

Take you with me to my fantasy land.

And I know I can't make your life all better,

But I can give you the strength to fight.

I wasn't around, baby, to tell you this before,

Now I want you to know it's alright.
