"So Far So Good" as written by Chad Kroeger, Ian Thornley, Jim Vallance and Gavin Brown....
I feel a little bit left of center
but then again we've all been there before
Every time I see a lost cause coming
it's nothing less, nothing more
Every time I get lost in paradise
I find a way to screw it up somehow
It's not the way it's supposed to be
but it'll do for now

When you're right, you're right
Everything else in my life just might be wrong
You're wrong all the time

So far so good 'cause no one knows I'm faking
I wish I could show you the toll it's taking
Sometimes I live as if there's no tomorrow
So far so good

I better find a way to cross my fingers
half the luck'll get me twice as far
I'm sick and tired of coming up for air
it shouldn't be this hard
Every little bit'll help I wonder
if it's enough or did I cross the line
The kitchen counter is a bad reminder of a better time

When you're right, you're right
Everything else in my life just might be wrong
You're wrong all the time

So far so good 'cause no one knows I'm faking
I wish I could show you the toll it's taking
Sometimes I live as if there's no tomorrow
So far so good

When you're right
Everything else you messed up just might be wrong
You're wrong all the time

So far so good 'cause no one knows I'm faking
I wish I could show you the toll it's taking
Sometimes I live as if there's no tomorrow
So far so good

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who drinks too much. He hides his problem from other people, but wishes that he didn't have to.

    General Commentokay...first of all as far as I'm concerned this song is definately not about drinking. well, I didn't get that out of it anyway. and second, the lyrics are screwed up. the chorus is...

    So far so good 'cause no one knows I'm faking
    I wish I could show you the toll it's taking
    Sometimes I live as if there's no tomorrow
    So far so good

    I think this song is about how when everything is going good for him, probably with a girl, things get messed up...("everytime I get lost in paradise I find a way to screw it up somehow ") and nobody can really see how much what's going wrong is affecting him. maybe the whole thinking it was about drinking thing came from the mess up in the lyrics and the line about the kitchen counter...but I think that line is reffering to maybe stuff he did with a girl on the kitchen counter and it reminds him of it...or I could be totally wrong...it's known to happen.. :)

    General CommentIan Thornley was the lead singer/guitarist for Big Wreck before they broke up. Like many of Big Wreck's songs, this one is again about that girl that got away.

    The kitchen counter line refers to him remembering the good times with the girl... making love in all the fun places that he can now not help but see everywhere.

    General Comment--Corrected Lyrics--

    I feel a little bit left of center
    but then again, we've all been there before
    everytime I see a lost cause coming
    it's nothing less, nothing more
    everytime I get lost in paradise
    I find a way to screw it up somehow
    Either way it's not supposed to be
    but it'll do for now

    When you're right, you're right
    everything else in my life just me be wrong, you're wrong
    All the time

    So Far So Good
    Cause no one knows im faking
    I wish I could
    Show you the toll its taking
    Sometimes I live as if theres no tomorrow
    So far so good

    I better find a way to cross my fingers
    half the luck will get me twice as far
    I'm sick and tired of coming up for air
    it shouldn't be this hard (be this hard)
    every little bit will help, I wonder
    if its enough or did I cross the line?
    the kitchen counter is a bad reminder
    of a better time

    When you're right, you're right
    everything else in my life just me be wrong, you're wrong
    All the time

    So Far So Good
    Cause no one knows im faking
    I wish I could
    Show you the toll its taking
    Sometimes I live as if theres no tomorrow
    So far so good

    When you're right.
    Everything else you messed up just might be wrong, you're wrong
    All the time

    So Far So Good
    Cause no one knows im faking
    I wish I could
    Show you the toll its taking
    Sometimes I live as if theres no tomorrow
    So far so good

    So Far So Good
    Cause no one knows im faking
    I wish I could
    Show you the toll its taking
    Sometimes I live as if theres no tomorrow
    So far so good

    General CommentI ... positively can not believe no one has said it so far: this song is about addiction, pure and simple.
    Drug addiction, if you so fancy, but addiction in general.

    "So far, so good, 'cause no one knows I'm taking."

    Addicts are generally ashamed to admit they are addicted, and are too ashamed to tell other people. He feels good that his problem hasn't become out of control.
    As an addict, I can not tell you how much these lyrics resonate with me. Especially this bit:
    "When you're right, you're right
    everything else in my life just me be wrong, you're wrong
    All the time"

    You know what you're doing is wrong, but at the moment it feels so right that everything in the world MUST be wrong. And afterward ... soon after, the sobering realization of how WRONG this all is, and then depression sets in, and then you feel yourself falling. Falling out of the high, and falling, worse yet, into reality.
    You are shit and all you've done is shit. Nothing has ever gone right.

    So far so good though, you're not at 0.0 yet.
