I was out on the town, all alone
Went back to our place, no one home
Made dinner for me, when it used to be we
Hard times, though, are a matter of degree
It’s not the loneliest night I’ve had to date
And something darker could lie in wait

Like red’s the new black, and black’s the new blue
If awake’s the new sleep, alone’s the new two
I feel OK, so I’ll celebrate
‚Cause OK … is the new great

The kitchen is empty, the bedroom is cold
She’s moved on to another pillow I’m told
Her perfume still lingers, it’s in the air
But I’m over that now, I don’t really care
I was number one, now I don’t even rate
I counted on love, did I miscalculate?

Like red’s the new black, and black’s the new blue
If awake’s the new sleep, alone’s the new two
Yeah, I feel OK, if a bit desolate
And OK … is the new great

When love is long past its sell-by date
You’re on opposite sides of the Bering Strait
When pleasure is pain and passion is hate
Have you really suffered the worst possible fate?
Admit to yourself, don’t dissimulate
OK … is the new great

When I reach the depths of despair
I think that I’m done, nothing more I can bear
I’ll sit back and think it coulda been worse
I may be stuck, but I ain’t in reverse
So if you ask me about my mental state
I’ll tell you the hurt will dissipate
My perfect’s now middling, each night’s a blind date
I’ll soldier on, won’t capitulate
I feel OK, won’t exaggerate
I feel OK, let me tell you straight
I feel OK, so I’ll celebrate
‚Cause OK … is the new great
