"The Good Life" as written by George Ciukurescu, Shane Henderson, Jonathan Perry, Max Soria and Brendan Walter....
I barely got to sleep last night
But don't worry girl I still had that dream again
The dream where I'm in a perfect world
With perfect blue skies

Where no one dies and we spend forever
Livin' in love, nothing could be better
Than a perfect world with a perfect girl
We'd have so much time living out the good life
Yeah, it's the good life

From the moment my feet touched sand
To the perfect skies up in the tall mountains

It felt so good to roll the windows down
Drive along until we find ourselves
And we'll go back to the life you wanna lead
Then we'll go back to the way things used to be

We'll find a way to make it right and we'll live our lives
Step by step, we'll make it as we sing

Don't ever forget all the sleepless nights
We stayed up late until the sun would rise
No matter how far you get I'll be a step behind
To catch you when you fall down

I've made great friends, I've seen great times
I've been in love and I've seen love die

Nothing's as good as when I close my eyes
And feel that road that's lead me through this life
It's a good life, just get me on my feet
It's a good life but I'm living in a dream where

I'll take a chance on every breath like it's my last
Step by step we'll make it as we sing

Don't ever forget all the sleepless nights
We stayed up late until the sun would rise
No matter how far you get I'll be a step behind
To catch you when you fall down

Don't ever forget all the sleepless nights
We stayed up late until the sun would rise
No matter how far you get I'll be a step behind
I'll find a way to catch you when you fall down

I packed my bags, I was on my way home
I was four hundred miles away from being back inside of your arms
It's where I always wanted to be

Don't ever forget all the sleepless nights
We stayed up late until the sun would rise
No matter how far you get I'll be a step behind
To catch you when you fall down
I'll catch you when you fall down

Don't ever forget all the sleepless nights
We stayed up late until the sun would rise
No matter how far you get I'll be a step behind
I'll find a way to catch you when you fall down

I barely got to sleep last night
But don't worry girl I still had that dream again

    Song MeaningThis has to do with Shane's girlfriend who died in an accident while they were on tour, correct?
    I only just found this out and I never had any idea.

    General Commentyea correct, the whole
    'I packed my bags
    I was on my way home
    I was 400 miles away
    From being back inside of your arms
    It's where I always wanted to be'
    pretty much explains what you said
    cuz he was 400 miles away from where she was when she died.
    and all he wanted was to be back inside of her arms
    (be with her)
