Alright by me (piano version)

The sun's sinking fast, the moon’s on the rise
The days, they don’t last like the look in you eyes
Some seem surprised but that’s alright by me
That’s alright by me

To know that life’s more than a hope and a dream
And the finest of things are not what they seem
I still float in between but that’s alright by me
That’s alright by me

Nothing’s going to be the same
Someday I’ll forget your name
They say it’s a shame
But that’s alright by me

Go ahead and try and laugh
In the end that’s all we have
Down this long beaten path
But that’s alright by me

Friends sometimes tell me
“As it comes it goes!”
No need to sell me
What I don’t need to know

When I was a boy I learned right away
When to be coy and what not to say
It might haunt me someday
But that’s alright by me
That’s alright by me

Go ahead and try and laugh
In the end it’s all we have
It’s a long beaten path
But that’s alright by me

Nothing’s gonna be the same
Someday you’ll forget my name
They say it’s a shame
But that’s alright by me
