This song is called “Alright”. Here’s a little bit about it.
Sometimes you get in a scenario that you think is going to go well, but it ends up not working out. I think we’ve all been there in some form or fashion. That’s where this song came from. There was a segment in time where two of the closest people in my life were very anxious about potential life shifts and outcomes. I felt the anger start to creep in. They had jumped, it had not worked out, and they were uncertain of what was going to happen next. I found myself telling them that “it’ll be alright” quite a bit. Not long before this, I had experienced a similar predicament. While I was wrestling with my own anger, encouraging others in it, and writing this song, I was also reading in book of Proverbs. Proverbs 29:11 says that “fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end”. Although it is simple, this verse hit me hard and it became a really a strong anchor for the writing of this song. It is foolish to let our rage take over, but it is wise to hold it back. Anger doesn’t produce anything good. I have fallen short of this way too many times so this song personally acts as a reminder to not let that rage take over. This one is meant to encourage you when you you are anxious, uncertain, or on the verge of rage. I hope “Alright” causes you to not let your blood boil, but to hold it back.
