"Good Thing" as written by Peter Cox, Peter Lord Moreland and Vernon Jeffrey Smith....
I had a dream I was mugged outside your house
I had a dream in a panic you came running out
For a moment you were sure I'd die on you
For a moment I believed you loved me too
But life is never like this, and you're never strong

Too much of a good thing won't be good for long
Although you made my heart sing, to stay with you would be wrong
Too much of a good thing won't be good anymore
Watch where I tread before I fall

We'd talk maybe 20 times a day
And still I never say what I want to say
I thought I wouldn't need to
I guess I read you wrong

Too much of a good thing won't be good for long
Although you made my heart sing, to stay with you would be wrong
Too much of a good thing won't be good anymore
Watch where I tread before I fall

You refuse to see this, don't see it anymore
I have made the decision not to answer your calls
'Cause I put everything out there and I got nothing at all

Too much of a good thing isn't good and you know
I watch where I walk before I fall
Before I fall

    General CommentOne of my favorite off of the album. Pretty self explanatory - not all "good" things are the same. This particular "good thing" was good because in the moment, it made Sam feel good. But, it's becoming bad because true feelings aren't being expressed, he thought the friend felt the same way - maybe the friend did, but didn't want to jump all the way..who knows. Seems like Sam gets led on way too much..damn jerks leading people on...

    My InterpretationIt's proof that when you hear that someone or something is too good to be true, it usually is.

    General CommentIncredible song. It's honestly one of my favorites that he's sung. I think he's trying to get across the idea of sometimes at the beginning of a relationship, things are good and nice and happy but after awhile the fire begins to dim and it's not 'good' or meaningful anymore.

    Or it could mean that things we think are good may not actually be that great. Like things that are coated in happiness and lies(like being a singer or actor) when in reality it's stressful and scary.
