"Good Is Good" as written by Sheryl Crow and Jeff Trott....
Good is good and bad is bad
But you don't know which one you had
She put your books out on the sidewalk
Now they're blowing 'round
They won't help you when your down

Love's on your list of things to do
To bring your good luck back to you

And if you think that everything's unfair
Would you care
If you're the last one standing there

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn and run before the lightning strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

I don't hold no mystery
But I can show you how to turn the key

Good is good and bad is bad
You don't know which one you had
She put your books out on the sidewalk
Now they're blowing ?round
They won't help you when you're down

Love's on your list of things to do
To bring your good luck back to you
And if you think that everything's unfair
Would you care
If you're the last one standing there

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn and run before the lightening strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

I don't hold no mystery
But I can show you how to turn the key
Cause all I know is where I started
So downhearted
And that's not where you want to be

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn and run before the lightening strikes
And you could find a rock to crawl right under
And let your good times pass you by

When the day is done
And the world is sleeping
And the moon is on its way to shine
All your friends are gone
You thought were so worth keeping
You feel you don't belong
But you don't know why

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn and run before the lightening strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

Everytime you hear the rolling thunder
And you turn and run before the lightening strikes
Well does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

When the day is done
And the world is sleeping
And the moon is on its way to shine (shine)
And all your friends are gone
You thought were so worth keeping
You feel you don't belong

Neither do I

    General CommentI think it's about a man and a woman who meet and feel like they've been shortchanged in life. She's letting him know that she understands how he feels.

    General CommentI like the way this song sounds, but I kinda disagree with the message. It's about being afraid to live life and aspiring to something higher; reaching your "full potential" basically. I just don't like how it's telling someone else that... like your life isn't good enough because you don't take enough risks or something. You know the best way to make someone feel life is worth-while? DON'T give instructions how to live it; just live and be happy instead of searching for happiness. It will come.

    General CommentI always thought this song was really weird, cuz I thought when she said "downhearted" she said "damn horny"... Then the rolling thunder, lightning thing sounded like orgasm. It seemed REALLY out of place and really weird to me, but it all made sense when I read this...
