I'm Not Okay (I Promise) Lyrics - My Chemical Romance

Review The Song (62)



Well if you wanted honesty
That's all you had to say.
I never want to let you down or have you go
It's better off this way
For all the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took
Remember when you broke your foot
From jumping out the second floor

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
You wear me out

What will it take to show you
That it's not the life it seems
I'm not okay
I've told you time and time again
sponsored links
You sing the words but
Don't know what it means
I'm not okay
To be a joke and look
Another line without a hook
I held you close as we both shook
For the last time take a good hard look

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
You wear me out

Forget about the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took
You said you read me like a book
But the pages all are torn and frayed

I'm okay
I'm okay
I'm okay now
I'm okay, now

But you really need to listen to me
Because I'm telling you the truth
I mean this
I'm okay!
(Trust Me)

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
Well I'm not okay
I'm not o-fucking-kay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
(Okay)

My life | Reviewer: Pary | 1/29/12

Well i loved this song it was amazing and it described my life . Im a lonely person whose life is to get lost in MJ or Onerepublic songs and nobody understands her. Well I loved this song and MCR.



Rant about how this describes my life.. | Reviewer: Miya-chan | 6/26/11

This song and the video describe my life perfectly... I have maybe 4 friends, and they all go to different schools. and on day the guy i like was all like, 'are you okay?' and me being me, i lied and said yes. Ever since then, ive really wanted to tell him exactly why i aint, but i dont wanna scare him off....
Cuz my life kinda sucks. I have a lazy mother who expects me to do everything, a son of a *beeeep* for a father, and i have to pretend to be someone im not at school just to survive it. Someday, next time someone asks if im okay, im gonna start quoting this song at 'em just to see if theyre even listening...z



deciding | Reviewer: anonymous | 4/23/11

I absolutely loooove this song. It shows exactly how i feel and recently my best friend asked my other best friend out. He rejected her and now they hate each other. I'm stuck in the middle and they asked me to pick one of them and now I'm really not okay because i can only be one of their friends and if i pick the guy she'll think i "like" him but i've known him since second grade and he's like a brother. But when i listened to this song i decided i didn't need her if she was act like that and got over her and i only had to listen to this AMAZING song once before i realized other people feel the same way. Now it's my favorite song and MCR is my favorite band and i know every single lyric to this song which helped me through a tough decision.



unexcepted? this songs for you ;-) | Reviewer: Tamisin | 4/19/11

love this song, and the band, and everything about them. im not going to sit here and tell you how mean people were to me, i mean they were fucking evil. my mom hates me and puts me down alot and my biological dad pretends i don't exist. so you can imagine what thats like. but when i first heard this song it just clicked in my head that none of them matter. so i put up with my lazy mom totally ignore the fact that my dad's an asshole and most of the other teens are just judgemental and i help my stepdad by cleaning the house everyday (and of course i listen to mcr CD's while i clean) and i raise my 3 siblings pretty much by myself. My Chemical Romance has shined a new light on my life so ive gone from unexcepted to excepted as a loveable person. which id be appreciate to be called as i am loveable, caring, kind, mechanically and musically inclined (love music and cars) really smart, and super protective.

I know now that I'm unique and special in my way and those other girls arent important.

so id love to thank My Chemical Romance for opening my eyes to the world of exceptance and love because I don't have to be like everyone else and i want to thank my stepdad who i have accepted for as long as i remember as my real father because he rocks and for being there to teach me everything i know

remember to rock out to my chemical romance all day everyday

^-^ Tamisin



Nomi | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/5/11

This song has really helped me pull through school. I mean, sure, I have friends but I've always felt like there's a wall separating me from peers my age. I have felt alone and I do nearly everyday, but I always come home and rock out to this song and it makes me feel so much better about myself. I know you shouldn't care about what other people think about you, but deep down I do, or used to, but this song has helped me break open my shell and I feel comfortable walking to school in my DMs whereas before I just felt awkward and used to swap my shoes as soon as I got to school.
I love MCR, they are literally life savers :) x



You know the time, | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/27/10

This is so relateable like when your on msn or facebook and someone asks if your okay and you've really had enough of people asking and you faking the 'yes I'm fine' an you say 'NO I'M NOT OKAY ACTUALLY!!!' And the persons like, oh damn, I'm sorry. And then they've left you in this super angry ball of rage for nothing. lol.



can relate so much | Reviewer: anonymous monster | 4/24/10

one of my best friends [hes a guy] he asked me out, i rejected him because i like us better being best friends. hes realllyyyy accident prone 2, so when he hurts, i do. people have broken his heart a lot. He's misunderstood. not in the "emo" or "goth" way but people think he's a jerk when he's really a good guy. but I used 2 like him a lot........ I L0VE MCR !



Great Song. | Reviewer: brenton | 7/2/09

Well, a girl and I were really close, and she asked me out, but I turned her down, because I didn't want things to get awkward/ruined.

Things did anyway after I found out from my mates the next day she decided shed date someone else,
This song really relates to my story, especially the part where he says he's okay, but then changes back to i'm not okay.

I think this relates to me because, whenever I think i'm over her, I turn around and say i'm not, and I really regret turning her down.



rejected lonely confused wronged all of the above | Reviewer: hannah | 4/28/09

this song I can really relate to everytime I hear this song I get teary but I think anyone would because everyone can relate to this I mean I can't tell you how many times I've been rejected for being me and I've been hurt and crushed depressed alone confused and everything eles but havnt we all. But I have also been the person on the other side of the feild I've been that jerk and that bully the one who's hurt people physically and mentally I used to be a different person I was mean popular and I thought that was cool but then after this summer I've changed and now I hang out with all thoughs kids I've hurt and made fun of and wears great friends and I realize what such a jerk I was and now I get crap for hanging out with these people and changed to a better person one who cares about others and now I understand and know how it feels to be in the other persons shoes and now I look at a differently and I don't care that I get shit for it because I'm finally happy with myself and who I am I like who I see in the mirrior now and can sleep better really knowing who I am and honestly if your like how I was don't be you'll just get and hurt the ones around you and remember you have to live with yourself also ask yourself do you like what you see in the mirror I know I didn't and I have real and better friends now who are amazing to forgive me like that and they mcr just like me you know I used to never understand why gerard hated being cool and now I understand why he loves being different and weird and unique so much and if you still don't know why then figure it outfor yourself but this song really has an effect on me and probably many others and remember who really are! We have all been there with mcr in those rejected moments so don't ever think your alone with that because your not you always have god mcr and us other fans we all love you and are here for you because we all have been their the thing I love about mcrs music is it speaks the truth and the real life problems I know I'm sick and I'll from being weird but you know what my medecine and cure is I'll tell you what my chemical romance they saved my life and saved me from ruining it so I just put mcr in my stereo blast it and scream at the top of My lungs the powerful words that are spoken from mcrs heart and my own I think that's how mcrs music speaks to us

pain | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/08

I love this song, When i first saw the video i could really relate to it. Both my best friend who are older and younger then me, one went to a different school, the other left by the time i got there all relate to this as well.

It's what i love about Chemical, how you can realte to them and feel the pain they feel, becasuse at the end of the day, it's your pain.



I don`t wanna make it, I just want... | Reviewer: stardust | 5/23/08

Dear cool...
I think what Gerard is going to say after the "I just want..." in the beginning is revenge. Cuz you know in the video, it`s like this "if you ever felt" theme going? In the end of the video there is a fight between the jocks and the croquet-club, and the sentence in the video is "be prepeared to feel revenge". I think gerards character only want revenge because "the cool kids" is giving him a hard time...It`s sort of a "hang in there" video...But that`s just my openion anyways...any other suggestions?



Dedicated to my feelings!! | Reviewer: Shider Popov | 2/28/08

Some time ago I broke up with my first love - such a pretty girl. I did it because she refused to listen to me when I said I loved her too much to see her afraid to go too deep in her feelings with me. So after St Valentine's day I told her it was over and I showed her those lyrics.



" summer jams " | Reviewer: Lex | 1/13/08

haha during one Project Revolution show , Gerard stated that this song is one of the best "summer jams" xD i couldn't agree more !
