"Good Life" as written by Nasir Jones, Joel Campbell, Allen Jr. Gordon, Nathaniel Hale and Jochan Schott....
I've watched my dreams all fade away
And blister in the sun
Everything I've ever had is unraveled and undone
I've set upon a worthless stack
Of my ambitious plans
And the people that I've loved the most
Have turned their backs and ran

This is the good life
I've lost everything
I could ever want
And ever dream of

This is the good life
I found everything
I could need
Here in your arms

Loneliness has left me searching
For someone to love
Poverty has changed my view
Of what true riches are
Sorrow's opened up my eyes
To see what real joy is
Pain has been the catalyst
To my heart's happiness

What good would it be
If you had everything
But you wouldn't have
The only thing you need

    General Commentit's the speaker talking about how he's lost al of his friends and he's at a low point but realizes how much it's humbled him and now it's just him and God.
