"Good For Great" as written by and Matthew Wesley Johnson Benjamin Heyward Allen....
Bruises and scrapes, our life's mistakes are nothing but bad weather.
Hope you sneaked in all of my friends just so we could leave together.
The books I won't read,
The air that I will breathe,
The colors I'd have seen,
I'll leave these pages in the trees.

Today, leave good for great
Leave sleep for late
Leave good for great
Leave sleep for late
Leave good for great
Leave sleep for late
Leave good

So many books that I didn't read,
But there's so much air I chose to breathe.
How about the colors that I've seen?
So I'll leave these pages in the trees.

I don't sit alone, I pick up my phone.
One day we'll say all that we had.
The beaten path is beaten fast.
I'm practicing hooks and jabs.

I traced a few lines, misread all the signs, slipped many times.
My blood's still red and I'm just fine.
Today, leave good for great
Leave sleep for late
Leave good for great.

So many books that I didn't read,
But there's so much air I chose to breathe.
How about the colors that I've seen?
So I'll leave these pages in the trees.

We sing along, but the notes are wrong
We sing along, through night and dawn
We sing along, but the notes are wrong
We sing along, through night and dawn
We sing along, but the notes are wrong
We sing along, through night and dawn
We sing along, but the notes are wrong
We sing along, through night and dawn
We sing along, but the notes are wrong
We sing along, through night and dawn

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the new cd. I feel like its just about loving life and doing what you want.

    I really love the line "So many books that I didn't read but theres so much air i chose to breathe"

    General Comment"today leave good for great, leave sleep for late" seems to imply wanting to try your best everyday and to achieve more than you dreamed you ever would-- and also not wanting to passively snooze your life way when you could be experimenting and experiencing

    General CommentThis song is super fun to listen to!
    I think that it's about wasting your time, and deciding that you are not going to.
    Another meaning could be that it is just skipping boring thugs such as reading and sleep
    for something more fun.

    Change your good mood into a great one.
