“Got to be All Right” — Songs of Will T. Massey

A song written in tribute to David Bowie and performed at the release party for Will’s 2016 CD, The Weathering, now available as digital download on Apple Music.

Will T. MasseyInto this tin can of me,
I was an easy shotgun ride.
It’s a terrible insanity
Where me & my girlfriends hide
I was looking for a magic stone
Then it came out of my mouth.
Now, I feel so less alone,
We found each other out.

It’s gonna be all right tonight.
Baby, it’s got to be all right.
Graveyards are just part of my script, babe.
And it’s got to be all right.

You used to wear your space suits
And dance a pleasant art.
I always felt safe with you,
Your drums, your boards, guitars,
Junior high owl just gone
With your face on the strings of peace.
You were fantastically weird —
I hear you left a beat.

It’s gonna be all right tonight.
Baby, it’s got to be all right.
Space always took me off on everything
And it’s got to be all right.

It’s gonna be all right tonight.
Baby, it’s got to be all right.
I’ve been there — I’ve been back — it happened.
And it’s got to be all right.

Will T. Massey, Mark GumB Williams (bass), and Mike Meadows (percussion)
