Hey was there something that you wanted to say?
I don't know what to do when you look that way
Cigarettes and tequila at six
And the sun going down on our life as it is
In the blue light
Oh your face, it looks so pale
In the blue light
Oh oh I can tell what you're going to say

But all good people have a sense of themselves
They never worry, they know what tomorrow will bring
And all good people know the world is okay
Why should we worry when we can do anything?

I heard that story how you never went back
What your mouth will not say, your eyes do for you
A paper flower and her pill in your drawer
And her ghost at the bar drinks tequila too
In the blue light
Could we put this one to bed?
In the blue light
Will you think of me instead?

'Cause all good people have a sense of themselves
They never worry, they know what tomorrow will bring
And all good people know the world is okay
Why should we worry when we can do anything?

In the blue light
Oh your face, it looks so pale
In the blue light
Oh oh I can tell what you're going to say

'Cause all good people have a sense of themselves
They never worry, they know what tomorrow will bring
And all good people know the world is okay
Why should we worry when we can do anything?

All good people have a sense of themselves
They never worry, they know what tomorrow will bring
And all good people know the world is okay
Why should we worry when we can do anything?

All good people
All good people know good people
All good people know good people
All good people know good people
All good people know good people
All good people know good people
All good people know good people

    General CommentThis is one of Pallots more, um, upbeat songs. I wasn't sure about it as first, but then the lyrics got to me.

    " 'Cause all good people have a sense of themselves
    They never worry, they know what tomorrow will bring
    And all good people know the world is okay
    Why should we worry when we can do anything?"

    To me, its a kind of paradoxical; she's very upbeat about the fact all good people are like this (perhaps refering to people like herself), but the person she speaks of is sitting at a bar at six, their faces pale in the blue neon lighting. When she tlaks of how the person 'never wnt back' to whoever the ghost at teh bar is, I pretty sure its about an old lover, someone the person's left behind. The memories are symbolisd by the 'paper flower' and 'pill in your drawer'.

    If you just read the lyrics, its pretty dark. A ghost in a bar...but, the song is upbeat (ahh, said that word 3 times, cant think of any other!), the paradox of this suggests a pretty dark past, of levaing an so on...maybe how 'good people' wouldn't so such a thing as run away.
