"Good Souls" as written by Benjamin Byrne, James Paul Stelfox, James Milne Walsh and Barry Westhead....
Feel
Sick after every meal
I'd say
'Cos I know
The life from your burning wheel
Won't wane
Sleep
I sleep every day
Wipe the cobwebs away
I need to be loved
Christ
I'm out of my mind
I need to be loved
I need to be loved
As I turn to you and I say
Thank goodness for the good souls
That make life better
As I turn to you and I say
If it wasn't for the good souls
Life would not matter
Dive straight in on your girlfriend
Making her feel like there's going to be a war
Dive straight in at the deep end
Making you feel like there's going to be a war
As I turn to you and I say
Thank goodness for the good souls
That make life better
As I turn to you and I say
If it wasn't for the good souls
Life would not matter
One good day of the week
And I'll be up again
One good day of the week
I'll be higher than the government
As I turn to you and I say
Thank goodness for the good souls
That make life better
As I turn to you and I say
If you're messing with a good heart
You've got to take what's due

    General CommentAnother good StarSailor song. I love the sound of this band. I think they're kind of like a mix of Saves the Day and Yellowcard. Anyway.. I like this song because it gives a good meaning, that goodness does help into making life better.

    General CommentA mix of Saves the Day and Yellowcard? All I can say is what are you talking about? Have you listened to any of the three bands involved? I am utterly confused. As for this song, I thorougly enjoy it. Good luck, stay gold.

    General Commentwho the hell says this sounds anything like saves the day? saves the day is one helluva punk band. starsailor is as far from punk as garth brooks. this is a good song, but sounds ABSOLUTELY nothing like saves the day, or yellowcard for that matter.

    General CommentI have a feeling that RagingAnne is only listening to Saves the Day's single, Freakish or something, the light sound, its far from their punk sound, light ska almost. Back to this song, this song is the best feel-good song I have ever heard in my life. I absolutly love the cd, and suggest to anybody who is such a loser and has not bought it yet, to go out and spend the next to nothing for it!

    General CommentLovely song...it creates such a mellow and calm atmoshpere. It's very simple, yet very touching, I've loved it since the first time I watched the video very very late at night (around 2001 I guess) cause MTV wouldn't play this kind of music at daytime -it wasn't "cool" enough. Now they don't even play it at night anymore :(

    General Comment...getting back to the lyrics... I take this song to be someone who is in a depressed state, for whatever reason, could be sick, who sees some hope because of the people that love him.

    I think they sound like a mid-late 80s Echo and the Bunnymen!

    General Commentgreat mellow song.

    regarding starsailor's sound, some have labeled them "warmplay", obviously insinuating their sound is similar to coldplay.

    i don't know if i agree with that 100%, but i can see a resemblance. both bands are superb.
