By Matthew Harrison

Most who read Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species for the first time will attest to their previous knowledge of the book having been based in pop-culture.

In this life there are so many problems

There is pain and there is suffering

Those things make me afraid

But they do not scare me

When you are with me


(Chorus)

It’s alright

It’s alright

When it’s alright with you

It’s alright with me


Also in life, there is friendship

There is pure love and beauty

I know when

I know when the rain arrives

We will be okay, everything will be okay


It’s alright

It’s alright

When it’s alright with you

It’s alright with me


Those things bring fear

But I do not have any fear

When I am with you


It’s alright

It’s alright

When it’s alright with you

It’s alright with me
