I'm watching the water
Watching the coast
Suddenly I know
What I want the most

And I want to tell you
Still I hold back
I need some time
Get my life on track

I know that look on your face
But there's somethin' lucky about this place
And there's somethin' good comin'
For you and me
Somethin' good comin'
There has to be

And I'm thinking 'bout mama
And about the kids
And the way we lived
And the things we did

How she never had a chance
Never caught a break
And how we pay for our big mistakes

I know so well the look on your face
And there's somethin' lucky about this place
There's somethin' good comin'
Just over the hill
Somethin' good comin'
I know it will

And I'm in for the long run
Wherever it goes
Ridin' the river
Wherever it goes

And I'm an honest man
Work's all I know
You take that away
Don't know where to go

And I know that look that's on your face
There's somethin' lucky about this place
There's somethin' good comin'
For you and me
Somethin' good comin'
There has to be

    General CommentPetty follows are fairly standard setlist night in and night out at his concerts. Each time he puts out a new album, he might incorporate 2-3 songs on that tour. He hasn't has much radio success as he's had in past years recently. "Something Good Coming" is my favorite song from "Mojo" and it is the one that has been played at many of his concerts. To me, it's pretty straightforward. If you consciously are always trying to be a good person, then it's your right to believe that you deserve to feel hope in your life.

    Petty rocks. What a songwriter. What a performer. What a songwriter. I encourage everyone to see him live at least once.
