    I'm leaving this comment here so after a month or a year when someone likes it, I get reminded of this song ❤
  • Stephanie_Flowers
    She was 19 with a baby on the way
    On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
    Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
    She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
    And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night
    To a one bedroom apartment, and when she'd turn on the light
    She would sit down at the table, tell herself that it's alright
    She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
    She'd never be alone
    Have someone to hold
    And when nights were cold
    She'd say

    The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
    If we got each other, and that's all we have
    I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    They were 90 and were living out their days
    On the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
    They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
    And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
    With each other, and though some times were hard
    Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
    No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
    But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
    Even at the end
    Their love was stronger than
    The day that they first met
    They'd say

    The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
    If we got each other, and that's all we have
    I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    You should know I'll be there for you

    I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
    I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
    So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
    When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
    I know she'd never leave me and I hate to see her cry
    So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    I wrote this verse to tell her that

    The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
    If we got each other, and that's all we have
    I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    You should know I'll be there for you.

    Alec is such an underrated singer, he deserves much more credit for the songs he creates. They are not songs about sex, drugs, or anything like that, they are about family and love
  • Dante
    At first I did not understand the meaning of the song, but after checking the translation, I realized that these are 3 separate stories and that this is a song about what a family is built on, whether it be a mother and child, a married couple or brother and sister. It's really very touching!
  • T M
    I just wanted to let you know, I had my son at 19, I’ve been a single mother his whole life. Pregnancy included. When I first heard this song I played it for him and now it is apart of our bedtime routine for about 2 years. Thank you for this, I’ll forever be grateful.
  • Noah Spangler
    Most singers sing what we want to hear.



    Alec sings what we need to hear.
  • Even though, this song wasn't being written from my brother, tears couldn't stop falling. Because my brother is my everything. What could i even do without him? He's the only person that always understands me and knows me the most. The person that i love the most and i would even die for him, he's so damn precious to me. We always spend our time together. So brother if you ever see my comment probably never but i want you to know that I'll always be by your side and I'll be with you till the end despite the fact that we always argue about silly things, still I Love You and I'll always Love You, I don't want to lose you, I can't even imagine life without you in this trash world.
    -Malvina.
  • The DolphinGirl
    This is how I feel about my sister. We have fights, but I can’t imagine my life without her. She’s my inspiration, and she is the only one who truly understands me and what I go through.
  • Monica
    My dad left when I was 7 (alcoholic and narcissist) and since then it's been just my mom, my older brother and me. This entire song made me bawl my eyes out

    LYRICS

    She was 19 with a baby on the way

    On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
    Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
    She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
    And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night
    To a one bedroom apartment, and when she'd turn on the light
    She would sit down at the table, tell herself that it's alright
    She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
    She'd never be alone
    Have someone to hold
    And when nights were cold
    She'd say

    The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
    If we got each other, and that's all we have
    I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    They were 90 and were living out their days
    On the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
    They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
    And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
    With each other, and though some times were hard
    Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
    No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
    But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
    Even at the end
    Their love was stronger than
    The day that they first met

    I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    You should know I'll be there for you

    I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
    I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
    So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
    When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
    I know she'd never leave me and I hate to see her cry
    So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    I wrote this verse to tell her that

    The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
    If we got each other, and that's all we have
    I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When the world's not perfect
    When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you

    You should know I'll be there for you.

    I know I’m multiple years late, but I gotta say this. I love how Alec’s songs are always their own great story. And the fact that he managed to put three separate cohesive stories into one song is absolutely amazing. And They weren’t just cohesive, they were good, telling stories. Alec is an awesome story teller and songwriter, I haven’t found a single song he’s made that’s anything less than beautiful.
  • Erika
    The world is not perfect but is not that bad because we have this song;)
  • Happy LyricsLK
    I love this song, it's healing and calming, Alex is a real legend
  • She was 19 with a baby on the way
    Ela tinha 19 anos com um bebê a caminho

    On the Eastside of the city, she was working every day
    No lado leste da cidade, ela trabalhava todos os dias

    Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
    Limpando pratos à noite, ela mal conseguia ficar acordada

    She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
    Ela estava se apegando ao sentimento de que sua sorte ia mudar

    And 'cross town she would take the bus at night
    E, do outro lado da cidade, ela pegaria o ônibus à noite

    To a one bedroom apartment, and when she'd turn on the light
    Para um apartamento de um quarto, e quando ela ligasse a luz

    She would sit down at the table, tell herself that it's alright
    Ela se sentaria à mesa, diria a si mesma que está tudo bem

    She was waiting on the day that she hoped her baby would arrive
    Ela estava esperando pelo dia que ela torcia que seu bebê chegasse


    She'd never be alone
    Ela nunca estaria sozinha

    Have someone to hold
    Teria alguém para abraçar

    And when nights were cold
    E quando as noites fossem frias

    She'd say
    Ela diria


    The world's not perfect but it's not that bad
    O mundo não é perfeito, mas não é tão ruim assim

    If we got each other and that's all we have
    Se temos um ao outro e isso é tudo que temos

    I will be your mother and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei sua mãe e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você

    When the world's not perfect, when the world's not kind
    Quando o mundo não for perfeito, quando o mundo não for gentil

    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    Se temos um ao outro, então ficaremos bem

    I will be your mother and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei sua mãe e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você


    They were 90 and were living out their days
    Eles tinham 90 anos e estavam vivendo seus dias até o último minuto

    On the Westside of the city next to where they got engaged
    No lado oeste da cidade ao lado de onde eles ficaram noivos

    They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they made
    Eles tinham fotos nas paredes de todas as memórias que eles fizeram

    And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
    E mesmo que vida deles nunca tenha sido fácil, eles estavam agradecidos por terem ficado

    With each other and though some times were hard
    Um com o outro e apesar de as vezes ter sido difícil

    Even when she made him angry, he would never break her heart
    Mesmo quando ela o deixava com raiva, ele nunca quebrava o seu coração

    And they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
    E eles não tinham dinheiro para comprar um carro de luxo

    But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
    Mas eles nunca tiveram que viajar porque nunca estavam separados


    Even at the end
    Mesmo no final

    Their love was stronger than
    O amor deles era mais forte do que

    The day that they first met
    No dia em que eles se conheceram

    They'd say
    Eles diziam


    The world's not perfect but it's not that bad
    O mundo não é perfeito, mas não é tão ruim assim

    If we got each other and that's all we have
    Se temos um ao outro e isso é tudo que temos

    I will be your lover and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei sua amante e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você

    When the world's not perfect, when the world's not kind
    Quando o mundo não for perfeito, quando o mundo não for gentil

    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    Se temos um ao outro, então ficaremos bem

    I will be your lover and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei seu amante e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você


    Mmm, mmm, mmm
    Mmm, mmm, mmm

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você


    I'm 23 and my folks are getting old
    Eu tenho 23 anos e meus pais estão envelhecendo

    I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
    Eu sei que eles não são eternos e estou com medo de ficar sozinho

    So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
    Então, eu sou grato pela minha irmã, embora às vezes nós briguemos

    When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
    Quando o ensino médio não estava fácil, ela foi a razão pela qual eu sobrevivi

    I know she'd never leave me and I hate to see her cry
    Eu sei que ela nunca me deixaria e eu odeio vê-la chorar

    So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    Então eu escrevi este verso para dizer a ela que eu estou sempre ao lado dela

    I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
    Eu escrevi este verso para dizer a ela que eu estou sempre ao lado dela

    I wrote this verse to tell her that
    Eu escrevi este verso para dizer a ela que


    The world's not perfect but it's not that bad
    O mundo não é perfeito, mas não é tão ruim assim

    If we got each other and that's all we have
    Se temos um ao outro e isso é tudo que temos

    I will be your brother and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei seu irmão e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você

    When the world's not perfect, when the world's not kind
    Quando o mundo não for perfeito, quando o mundo não for gentil

    If we have each other then we'll both be fine
    Se temos um ao outro, então ficaremos bem

    I will be your brother and I'll hold your hand
    Eu serei seu irmão e segurarei sua mão

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você


    Mmm, mmm, mmm
    Mmm, mmm, mmm

    You should know I'll be there for you
    Você deveria saber que estarei lá por você
