Marshmello and Demi Lovato team up for new awareness song

In an interview with Apple Music, Marshmello explained that the emotional subject matter in “OK Not to Be OK” took on a new meaning, given that it was released on World Suicide Prevention Day (Sept. 10).

 

“I think it’s just such an important subject,” the DJ-producer said. “I think a lot of people, about negative feelings and negative thoughts that are affecting them are kind of scared to bring it up, scared to talk about it. When in reality, they’re scared because maybe the person won’t relate or the person won’t understand, when in reality most of time the person that you could bring it up to, will most likely has felt like this or will understand or can relate as well. So I think it’s very important to talk about it.”

The track has been released in partnership with not-for-profit agency Hope for the Day, which raises awareness and conversation around suicide prevention and mental health education.

According to a press release, the song – penned by Gregory “Aldae” Hein, James Gutch and James Nicholas Bailey – serves “as a humbling reminder that it’s ok to let go of feelings of self-doubt and embrace the fact that we’re all human”.

Lyrics –
Feeling like a drop in the ocean
But don’t nobody notice
Maybe it’s all just in your head
Feeling like you’re trapped in your own skin
And now your body’s frozen
Broken down, you’ve got nothing left
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to breathe
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re down and you feel ashamed
It’s okay not to be okay
Feeling like you’re lost in illusion
And lately you’re secluded
Thinking you’ll nevеr get your chance
Feeling like you’vе got no solution
It’s only ’cause you’re human
No control, it’s out of your hands
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to breathe
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re down and you feel ashamed
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to breathe (Ah-ha)
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay (Oh, oh)
It’s okay not to be okay (No, no)
When you’re down and you feel ashamed (When you feel ashamed)
It’s okay not to be okay (No)
It’s okay not to be okay
