Trivia Edit

  • After "Be Alright" was released in March 2016, a producer named Mura Masa falsely accused the song of sounding too similar to his 2015 song "Firefly."[7][8] The liner notes of Dangerous Woman now include credit to "Firefly" as a result.
  • Be Alright used to have a louder/more enhanced beat in the chorus.
    • After being asked about this several times, Ariana stated that this was a result of the song not yet being mastered in the snippet and that some things sound louder or quieter following a song being mastered, resulting in the "different" beat.
  • Ariana opens the Dangerous Woman Tour with this song and worked with frequent collaborator Hannah Lux Davis to film special footage featuring her and her dancers that plays on the screen behind the stage.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Midnight shadows
Where finding love is a battle
But daylight is so close
So don't you worry 'bout a thing

[Chorus]
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright

[Refrain]
Baby, don't you know
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
Then every little thing is gonna be alright
Baby don't you know
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
We decide it

[Chorus]
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright

[Verse 2]
In slow motion
Can't seem to get where we're going
But the hard times are golden
'Cause they all lead to better days

[Chorus]
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright

[Refrain]
Baby, don't you know
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
Then every little thing is gonna be alright
Baby don't you know
All them tears gon' come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
We decide it

[Chorus]
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright
We're gonna be alright

[Alternative Ending]
We're gonna be alright
Yeah we're gonna be alright
You know that we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Yeah we're gonna be alright boy
