lyrics

BE GOOD (Reynolds/Cohen)

DO WE WANT TO FIND THE ANSWER
WALK AWAY FROM OUR DISASTER
TO LIFE BEYOND THIS SHADOW DANCING LONELINESS

IT'S SO HARD TO WALK THE STRAIGHT LINE
TEMPTATIONS LEFT AND RIGHT WHEN
EVERYONE'S JUST TRYING THEIR BEST TO GET AHEAD

THERE'S ALWAYS AN EASY WAY
BUT IF WE TAKE IT THEN WE GON' PAY
WE GON’ PAY
BUT

IF WE CAN BE GOOD
WE GOT A CHANCE
WE CAN BE GOOD
THERE'S NO OTHER PLAN
TO SETTLE THE JANGLING MINDS AND HEARTS OF YOU AND I
WE'RE ALL ON THE EDGE OF LOVE OR HATE
WILL SENSE PREVAIL BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
COULDA WOULDA SHOULDA
WON'T CUT IT NOW
BUT WE MIGHT SURVIVE
IF WE CAN BE GOOD MM MM
IT WOULD BE GOOD MM MM

IF WE DISREGARD THE DAMAGE
OUR TWO HEARTS BEAT IN ONE LANGUAGE
CAN TRY TO TURN THIS BLACK HOLE INTO STARS

THOUGH I RECALL EMOTIONS RAGING
WE’RE STILL THE REASON FOR THE RIGHT THING
WE CAN BE MUCH BETTER IF WE’RE WHO WE ARE

THERE'S ALWAYS THE EASY WAY
BUT IF WE TAKE IT THEN WE GON' PAY
BUT

IF WE CAN BE GOOD
WE GOT A CHANCE
WE CAN BE GOOD
THERE'S NO OTHER PLAN
TO SETTLE THE JANGLING MINDS AND HEARTS OF YOU AND I
WE'RE ALL ON THE EDGE OF LOVE OR HATE
WILL SENSE PREVAIL BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
COULDA WOULDA SHOULDA
WON'T CUT IT NOW
BUT WE MIGHT SURVIVE

IF WE CAN BE GOOD MM MM
IT WOULD BE GOOD MM MM
IF WE CAN BE GOOD MM MM
WE CAN DO GOOD MM MM

AH HA
UM YEAH

CUZ DESTINY’S A BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY
SOMEBODY SAID TO ME SO
LET’S CHASE THIS THRILL
INTO THE FUTURE
THE FUTURE

IF WE CAN BE GOOD
WE GOT A CHANCE
WE CAN BE GOOD
THERE'S NO OTHER PLAN
TO SETTLE THE JANGLING MINDS AND HEARTS OF YOU AND I
WE'RE ALL ON THE EDGE OF LOVE OR HATE
WILL SENSE PREVAIL BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE
COULDA WOULDA SHOULDA
WON'T CUT IT NOW
BUT WE MIGHT SURVIVE

IF WE CAN BE GOOD MM MM
IT WOULD BE GOOD MM MM
IF WE CAN BE GOOD MM MM
WE CAN DO GOOD MM MM
