Lyrics

Midnight
Shadows
Where findin' love is a battle
But daylight, is so close

So don't you worry 'bout a thing
We're gonna be alright
(Yeah)
We're gonna be alright
(Ooooh yeah, oh yeah)

Baby, don't you know?
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
That every little thing is gonna be alright
Baby don't you know?
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind

We decide it
We're gonna be alright
(Yeah)
We're gonna be alright
(Ooooh yeah, oh yeah)

We're in slow motion
Can't seem to get where we're going
But the high times
Are golden
'Cause they all lead to better days

We're gonna be alright
(Yeah)
We're gonna be alright
(Ooooh yeah, oh yeah)

Baby, don't you know?
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
That every little thing is gonna be alright
Baby, don't you know?
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind

We decided
We're gonna be alright
(Yeah)
We're gonna be alright
(Ooooh yeah, oh yeah)

We're gonna be alright
