The Good One

lyrics

I spilled my drink
As I shuffled across the stage
Trying to get the attention
of someone who had glazed
Over drinking, thinking
and talking in their sleep
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.

I took a break
And you told me I was good
Wondered was I playing anywhere
I said no you said I should
Over drinking, thinking
It’s taking away my sleep
I think I’ll play the good one before I get too deep

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before I get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.

I hope you’ll feel
Something deeply that you need
I’ve fumbled madly trying
To find a line we both believe
I’ll give you everything
I know how to make it right
And I think I’ll play the good one, for you to feel tonight

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something burning in the light
I think I’ll play the good one for you to feel tonight
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you

Now Don’t settle up your tab while I’m still standing on the stage
I’m giving everything I can to make you want to stay
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep this thing alive
So if you’ll order up another I’ll play the good one tonight

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.
