Be Alright
Dean Lewis Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I look up from the ground
To see your sad and teary eyes
You look away from me
And I see there's something you're tryna hide
And I reach for your hand but it's cold
You pull away again
And I wonder what's on your mind
And then you say to me you made a dumb mistake
You start to tremble and your voice begins to break
You say the cigarettes on the counter weren't your friend's
They were my mate's
And I feel the color draining from my face

And my friend said
"I know you love her, but it's over, mate
It doesn't matter, put the phone away
It's never easy to walk away, let her go
It'll be alright"

So I still look back at all the messages you'd sent
And I know it wasn't right, but it was fucking with my head
And everything deleted like the past, yeah, it was gone
And when I touched your face, I could tell you're moving on
But it's not the fact that you kissed him yesterday
It's the feeling of betrayal, that I just can't seem to shake
And everything I know tells me that I should walk away
But I just wanna stay

And my friend said
"I know you love her, but it's over, mate
It doesn't matter, put the phone away
It's never easy to walk away, let her go
It'll be okay
It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
You'll find another and you'll be just fine
Let her go"

But nothing heals the past like time
And they can't steal
The love you're born to find
But nothing heals the past like time
And they can't steal
The love you're born to find

"I know you love her, but it's over, mate
It doesn't matter, put the phone away
It's never easy to walk away, let her go
It'll be okay
It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
You'll find another and you'll be just fine
Let her go"

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright




It'll be alright
It'll be alright

Overall Meaning

The first verse of the song describes a moment of pain and confusion within a relationship. The singer is looking up at his partner and sees sadness and tears in her eyes. She looks away and seems to be hiding something. The singer tries to reach for her hand, but she pulls away, leaving him wondering what's going on. She then reveals that she made a mistake, specifically that the cigarettes on the counter were not her friend's, but his mate's. This confession leaves the singer shocked and confused.


In the second verse, the singer is still holding on to the past, looking back at the messages his partner sent, even though he knows it's not right. He can tell that she's moving on and has even kissed someone else, but he still wants to stay with her despite feeling betrayed. His friend advises him to let her go, as it's never easy to walk away from a relationship, but that eventually, things will be alright. The final verse repeats this sentiment, saying that time heals all wounds and that love cannot be stolen, but rather it's something that will be found eventually.


Overall, "Be Alright" is a relatable song about the pain and healing that comes with the end of a relationship. The singer is struggling to come to terms with the betrayal of his partner, but knows that eventually he will be able to move on and find love again.


Line by Line Meaning

I look up from the ground
I raise my head to find you staring with tears in your eyes


To see your sad and teary eyes
You appear sad and weepy


You look away from me
You turn your face away from me


And I see there's something you're tryna hide
I understand that you are keeping something secret from me


And I reach for your hand but it's cold
I stretch my hand but you repel it with coldness


You pull away again
You refuse to draw closer to me once more


And I wonder what's on your mind
I think about what is troubling you


And then you say to me you made a dumb mistake
You confess to me that you made a silly error


You start to tremble and your voice begins to break
You start shaking and your voice starts to falter


You say the cigarettes on the counter weren't your friend's
You explain that the cigarettes on the counter belonged to my friend


They were my mate's
They belonged to my mate


And I feel the color draining from my face
I feel my face losing its color


And my friend said
My friend told me


"I know you love her, but it's over, mate
"I know you are in love with her, but the relationship is over, my friend


It doesn't matter, put the phone away
It is irrelevant, keep your phone away


It's never easy to walk away, let her go
It is never effortless to leave someone, let her go


It'll be alright
Everything will be fine


So I still look back at all the messages you'd sent
I ponder over all the messages you sent me


And I know it wasn't right, but it was fucking with my head
I realize it was wrong, but it messes with my mind


And everything deleted like the past, yeah, it was gone
You deleted everything like it never existed, including our past


And when I touched your face, I could tell you're moving on
When I touched your face, I could tell you are getting over me


But it's not the fact that you kissed him yesterday
It is not the fact that you kissed him yesterday


It's the feeling of betrayal, that I just can't seem to shake
It is the feeling of being let down that I cannot seem to eradicate


And everything I know tells me that I should walk away
All I know points to me walking away


But I just wanna stay
But I just want to remain


It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
It will hurt a bit for some time


So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
So let's forget tonight, let's drink up


You'll find another and you'll be just fine
You will find another and be okay


Let her go
Allow her to leave


But nothing heals the past like time
Time is the only healer of the past


And they can't steal
Nobody can snatch away


The love you're born to find
The love that is destined for you

Just had the love of my life leave me for my other friend and he was my best friend. My parents just think I'm overeating but really I'm not. I almost killed myself and got taken to the crisis center and instead of my parents embracing me telling me that they love me they pushed me away and told me i'm just an existence in this world.
