I've Been Okay (New Song Lyrics)

photo by Cal Quinn

   Since I've rebooted my project, I've been so focused on the business side because I feel it's been lacking significantly in the past, and less on new music.  It's been a while since I've finished a new song.  So I'm proud of this one, and want to keep the ball rolling.  This one is about relationship nostalgia.  The song doesn't come from any one relationship, but from all of them really.  In dreams I think we all miss people we've loved in the past, and I think that's a good thing.  

   There are always lots of parts floating around my head that need to be used.  Always half finished, because it's difficult to find the same groove once you've stopped, so it's time to reach out for some co-writes.  Already reached out to some of my first picks but mutually busy lives can make scheduling difficult.  Thanks to Andrew Delaney for assisting me with some key lines and helping to make the chorus more catchy. Catch this one at my next show.  

 

 

I’ve Been Okay

(written by D. Anson Brody, and Andrew Delaney)

 

The morning pulls me from a lovely vision 

I awake with the taste of your name on my lips 

It’s been a while since you’ve gone away 

And it first I was hard but now it’s just bittersweet 

 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

Hey,  I’ve been ok, yeah I’m alright 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

That I’m ok, yeah I’m just fine 

It’s just these dreams still get to me sometimes 

 

I heard somewhere that you got married, 

and that puppy we got grew so fast. 

I’m still on my own with this guitar 

Seeing how long I can make a moment last 

 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

Hey,  I’ve been ok, yeah I’m alright 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

That I’m ok, yeah I’m just fine 

It’s just these dreams still get to me sometimes 

 

I just wanted to put pen to paper 

Clear some cobwebs from mind 

I hope it’s a full life you’re living 

I’ll end my letter simply 

asking PLEASE 

Don”t regret me 

Please don’t regret me 

 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

Hey,  I’ve been ok, yeah I’m alright 

Baby I’m just writing to say 

That I’m ok, yeah I’m just fine 

It’s just these dreams still get to me sometimes
