It's Not Gonna Be OK

A really happy-sounding, mid-tempo Hawaiian-ish rocker w/ marimba solo that slides its way to delivering a totally pessimistic yet blatantly realistic outlook on the future with its contrasting lyrical message.

Lyrics

"It's Not Gonna Be OK"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

The grass on your lawn is gonna turn to hay

It won't help when someone says to you have a nice day

Whenever you get close, you always run out of time

Everything won't be alright, no, it won't work out fine

You can pay a shrink a fortune, but never hear what you need them to say

It's not gonna be okay


Things will get worse, before they ever get better

It's gonna feel like a curse, any time you get a love letter

Next thing you know, your new relationship's over

It's time to face the fact you'll never find a four-leaf clover

When you're floating through the street, it's gonna rain on your parade

It's not gonna be okay


Now I know that this is not what you want to hear

And it could very well be your confidence won't disappear

It's not entirely impossible to be happy and lucky too

But the odds aren't in your favor, the deck is stacked against you


Chances are you're gonna lose way more than you win

Admit you'll never be a saint, and you're destined to sin

You've made a lot of mistakes, and most you'll make again

Your life will be a struggle until the bitter end

You're bound to suffer and experience a whole lot of pain

It's not gonna be okay


You'll never have your day in the sun, things probably won't go your way

It's not gonna be okay
