One, two
You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Don't get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me, go
Yeah, go but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turned your eyes away
If you don't feel complete
If I don't take you all of the way then go
Yeah, go but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

Yeah, go just go, but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

    General CommentI totally agree with the comments, you nailed it.. it's all about who did the choosing and who had the upper hand.. even though there is an obvious nod to the fact that it's really all subjective and more than likely the narrator was not the one in control. This is wonderfully borne out by the tremendously creative video in how it manages to find a creative complement, almost a counter point, to the song. The band members are playing rolls, kind of crusty traveler types, but it's in the future. And we know they are who they are, the rock star guys, too.. there's a little tongue in cheek to it.. but what relates to the song so nicely as the kind of further extension on the theme of the song, is how the seem to be wandering around aimlessly in some kind of semi-purposeful obscelence.. the setting is that of one of, what do you call it? A post-world? I forgot but you probably know what I mean.
