"Good for You's Good for Me" as written by and Matthew Frederick/bauer Barrick....
In the fall the air is dry,
In the shadow of this town.
And the sun is shining out
Pushing shadows down the street.

Cross into the sunny side,
Her and I am barreling out.
And the leaves are coming down
Coverin' up this muddy ground.

Good for you is good for me,
Maybe I'll stop by,
You weren't in the dream I had last night.

And the sun was shinin',
Never so invitin'.
Yea the sun was shinin' out
Underneath the dogwood tree.

Rent is always climbin',
Why don't you move in?
What the hell we might as well try.

On some hazy afternoon
Heard a siren in the air,
High above this city sky,
Over towers, over domes.

And the sun was shining out
Cast my shadow on the walk.
Another year is goin' round
In a shadow on this town.

I don't get some people
But I don't really try,
Whats good for you is good for me
For now

    General CommentGreat song, but my God, I actually don't get this one. And I'm perfect. Surprising.

    Seriously, though, what's this one about, and why the fuck am I the only one to comment on it? Great imagery in this song.

    General Commentits a song describing a lazy day.....its just a beautiful summery description.

    he's just outside embracing the day and stops to ponder "I don’t get some people,
    But I don’t really try.
    What’s good for you is good for me, for now."
