Olivia Rodrigo - hope ur ok

[Verse 1]
I knew a boy once when I was small
A towhead blond with eyes of salt
He played the drum in the marching band
His parents cared more about the Bible
Than being good to their own child
He wore long sleeves 'cause of his dad
And somehow, we fell out of touch
Hope he took his bad deal and made a royal flush
Don't know if I'll see you again someday
But if you're out there, I hope that you're okay

[Verse 2]
My middle school friend grew up alone
She raised her brothers on hеr own
Her parents hated who shе loved
She couldn't wait to go to college
She was tired 'cause she was brought into a world
Where family was merely blood
Does she know how proud I am she was created
With the courage to unlearn all of their hatred?
We don't talk much, but I just gotta say
I miss you and I hope that you're okay

[Bridge]
Address the letters to the holes in my butterfly wings
Nothing's forever, nothing is as good as it seems
And when the clouds won't iron out
And the monsters creep into your house
And every door is hard to close
[Outro]
Well, I hope you know how proud I am you were created
With the courage to unlearn all of their hatred
But, God, I hope that you're happier today
'Cause I love you
And I hope that you're okay

"hope ur ok" is the eleventh and final track from Olivia Rodrigo's debut studio album, SOUR. It was released on May 21, 2021 through Geffen Records. This song takes a step back from her past relationship and focuses on her old neighborhood friends that had a difficult youth. This song is believed to be addressing how these friends were not accepted for being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, with lyrics like “his parents cared more about the Bible than being good to their own child” and “her parents hated who she loved”. In the first verse, “he wore long sleeves ‘cause of his dad” means that he was abused as a child for being who he was. In this song, Olivia expresses that she hopes her childhood friends are doing better today than they were before. She explains how she is proud that they were created “with the courage to unlearn all of their hatred”, aka hatred against the LGBTQ+ community, which they were raised on.
