about

If you've ever loved someone who's going through a hard time, you know it's rough on both of you. But sometimes, just giving them some time and space is the best remedy...

lyrics

I know times are tough
I know it’s a little windy outside
I know you feel swallowed up
And spit onto the sidewalk

This ain’t what you signed up for
Well hon, it rarely is
And no one’s gonna pick you up
If you don’t reach out your hand

It’s okay to take some time, it’s okay to get some space
It’s okay to ask for help, and it’s okay to be afraid
You can ask for some alone time, just take the time for you
Cuz you’re the only one who knows what’s right for you
And sunshine, sunshine, you’ll be fine

So you took a risk
So you took the trail that was not marked
So you got a little lost
And you don’t know where you are

It’s okay to take some time, it’s okay to get some space
It’s okay to ask for help, and it’s okay to be afraid
You can ask for some alone time, just take the time for you
Cuz you’re the only one who knows what’s right for you
And sunshine, sunshine, you’ll be fine

And I’m one of the few who will say to you
That it’s okay, it’s okay to be selfish
Cuz I know things get worse when you don’t put yourself first
And say okay, okay, I am taking care of me right now

It’s okay to take some time, it’s okay to get some space
It’s okay to ask for help, and it’s okay to be afraid
You can ask for some alone time, just take the time for you
Cuz you’re the only one who knows what’s right for you
And sunshine, sunshine, you’ll be fine
