Saturday’s Song: Be OK

Today’s song is a request from one of my earliest readers.  I remember being in a hotel room in Connecticut when I received a comment from the author of It Never Rains In Seattle.  Since then, I’ve followed his story through marriage and divorce.  A few days ago, he contacted me and suggested Ingrid Michaelson’s, Be OK for Saturday’s song.  I’m happy to oblige.

Enjoy, everyone.  And have a great weekend 🙂

“Be OK” (written by Ingrid Michaelson)

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok today
I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok todayI just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today
I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today[CHORUS:]
Open me up and you will see
I’m a gallery of broken hearts
I’m beyond repair, let me be
And give me back my broken partsI just want to know today, know today, know today
I just want to know something today
I just want to know today, know today, know today
Know that maybe I will be ok[CHORUS]Just give me back my pieces
Just give them back to me please
Just give me back my pieces
And let me hold my broken parts

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok today
I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok today

I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today
I just want to know today, know today, know today
Know that maybe I will be ok
Know that maybe I will be ok
Know that maybe I will be ok

  1. In the midst of my divorce, I ran to this song almost daily. It was on my playlist and every time it came on, in the midst of me trying to just RUN through the pain and trying to use the physical to sort out the emotional, it just ripped right through me. Every. Time. It knocked me down and built me up all at the same time. When I hear it now, it feels nostalgic and bittersweet. And it’s still a great song.

  2. Thanks for the song. Sometimes aiming for being just ‘OK’ is an aim worth fighting for.
