This is a song from my third album entitled: "Keep Me in Your Heart"

Lyrics

EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT 6/29/14
MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

CHORUS
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YAH-YAH,
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YAH-YAH

VERSE 1
THE RENT IS DUE
AND THE STUDENT LOAN TOO
AND THE CREDIT CARD BILL; IT MUST BE DÉJÀ VU
YOU TRY TO SAVE A LITTLE MONEY
DOING ALL THAT YOU CAN DO
THOUGH YOU WORK SO HARD
YOU BUY NOTHING NEW

VERSE 2
THERE’S A BABY ON THE WAY
TO GIVE YOU JOY EACH DAY
BUT THERE’S FORMULA TO BUY
AND DOCTORS’ BILLS TO PAY
YOUR LIFE IS GETTING LARGER
BUT YOUR PLACE IS TOO SMALL
FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE TO PLAY
AND YOUR TODDLER TO CRAWL

BRIDGE
THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
WE’RE GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH
JUST HAVE SOME FAITH EACH DAY
AND WE’LL BE OK, WE’RE GONNA FIND OUR WAY

CHORUS
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH

VERSE 3
COULD BE A LAYOFF TODAY
AND ANOTHER ONE’S PLANNED
YOUR FOREMAN’S GOING CRAZY
AND HE’S MAKING HIS DEMAND
THAT YOU WORK LESS HOURS
AND TAKE HOME LESS PAY
BUT YOU DON’T THINK YOU’LL
MAKE YOUR BILLS THIS WAY

VERSE 4
YOUR WIFE PAYS THE BILLS
GOT NO MONEY LEFT FOR FRILLS
BUT YOU BADLY NEED SOME ASPIRIN
HAVE TO TAKE TOO MANY PILLS
THE ENGINE’S SOUNDING FUNNY
AND A CAR-SEAT YOU MUST BUY
WE HAD HOPED TO SAVE SOME MONEY
NOTHIN’ DOIN’, THOUGH WE TRY

BRIDGE
THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
WE’RE GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH
JUST HAVE SOME FAITH EACH DAY
AND WE’LL BE OK, WE’RE GONNA FIND OUR WAY

CHORUS
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH THE DARKNESS NIGHT, YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH
YAH-YAH, YEAH-YEAH-YEAH

VERSE 5
GO HOME, AT NIGHT, AFTER VERY LONG DAY
AND I DON’T STOP ANYWHERE ALONG THE WAY
‘CAUSE MY WIFE WOULD GET UPTIGHT
AND I’D HAVE TO HEAR HER SAY:
“WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU?
YOU’RE TOO OLD TO PLAY”.

VERSE 6
IF I GO, TO SCHOOL, MY CAREER TO ADVANCE
THEN I WON’T HAVE, TO LIVE, MY LIFE IN A TRANCE
LET’S TRUST IN EACH OTHER, LET’S TAKE A CHANCE
TO INVEST IN OUR FUTURE, IT’S OURS TO ENHANCE.

Repeat BRIDGE

Repeat CHORUS (and then fade on Chorus)
