I’m not okay is another classic song from one of my favourite bands My Chemical Romance (MCR are sadly no more, since breaking up in 2013).

Lyrics

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
For 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 told you time and time again you sing the words but 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
Forget about the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took?
You said you 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 (okay)
