I'm Not Okay (I Promise)
by My Chemical Romance



Well, if you want it honesty, that's all you have 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've 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'd read me like a book,
But the pages are all torn and frayed.

Now I'm okay!
I'm okay!
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!
