"Good Feeling" as written by and Gordon Gano....
Good feeling
Won't you stay with me just a little longer
It always seems like your leaving
When I need you here just a little longer
Dear lady there's so many things
That I have come to fear
Little voice says I'm going crazy
To see all my worlds disappear
Vague sketch of a fantasy
Laughing at the sunrise
Like he's been up all night
Ooh slippin' and slidin'
What a good time but now
Have have to find a bed
That can take this wait
Good feeling
Won't you say stay with me just a little longer
It always seems like your leaving
When I know the other one
Just a little too well
Oh dear lady
Won't you stay with me just a little longer
Why does it always seems like your leaving
When I need you here just a little longer

    General CommentThis is somewhat self-explanatory. I love this tune a lot. Everybody can relate to wanting a fleeting good feeling to last a precious few more moments before you gotta get back to the grind.

    Preach on, Femmes.

    General CommentTo me this song, being single and finding the one, not just anyone, but the one and how when ever you're with them you can feel like you're high. Then once they departe you come down and still see that you're not with them, but you were with tem for those moments. Those are the moments you musn't forget, and the moments spent with the ones you love (best friends, family, ect.) cherish the moments before they are gone.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about happiness and that good feeling you get when something good is happening/happened and you just feel good. I think this song is also about love, drugs or whatever makes your feel good. This song is the ultimate feel good song like other people said it makes you smile when you listen to it. This is my go to song when i feel depressed about something and just need to feel good aboout something. The song is the good feeing, at least that's what i think.

    General Commenti cant believe that no one has commented on this song. this is one of my favorite violent femmes songs of all time. i really like how he draws out and stresses some of the words to make them more painful/emotional and what not. ahh, such a good song!

    General CommentThis song kills me! What does good feeling make you think of? Most would say love or drugs. Sure it feels good to get and A on an exam, but it's not going to make you feel heavy. I think this song is about drugs, of course. My favorite is...

    Vague sketch of a fantasy
    Laughing at the sunrise
    like he's been up all night.
    Ooo slippin' and slidin',
    what a good time but now
    have to find a bed
    that can take this weight.

    That is so amazing...I picture the cresent moon smiling crookedly at the sun after a long and crazy night. Ah that feeling of being up all night with someone you love...now it's time to find a bed because i am heavy with love and drugs.

    General CommentHonestly, this is the only song I've ever heard that can make me smile and cry at the same time. It's odd.

    General Commentthis song is so sad. the way i see it, he's only happy for a fleeting moment once in a while, and he regrets all the time he's sad, but he can't shake all the bad feelings. reminds me of myself.
