Matthew Young – Good Things Lyrics

[Matthew Young – Good Things Lyrics]

All I need is good things
But all my shit ain’t working
Not been how I should since
Forgetting what ain’t bad is good things

I got a tendency to fuck it up
Mood swings like a doo-wop
All that I built up, got knocked down
Around the time when the first EP dropped

I was onto new things
A new sound, new haircut
And lost all of my friends
I’d trade anything to feel that love again

Now all I need is good things
But all my shit ain’t working
Not been how I should since
Forgetting what ain’t bad is good things

I got a genie in a bottle man
Labeled citalopram, take 40 milligrams
Definition of a best laid plan
But this’ll do good for your lifespan

Mister depression sir, I need a holiday
You know I wish you’d get the fuck away
Well all you gotta do is rub that lamp and I’ll say
It doesn’t work that way

But then my mother calls in
And says everything will be okay
She tells me that

All I need is good things
But all my shit ain’t working
Not been how I should since
Forgetting what ain’t bad is good things
Good things
Good things
Good things

These days, everybody (Everybody)
Everybody’s talking about these days
Like if this shit is so good
Then why would anything change

I get it, I mean I think I do
Can everybody get a brand new attitude?
We don’t like it unless it’s brand new
But oh man what I wouldn’t give to go back to you

June of 2015
I had really bad day, no good things
Then a really bad week
From 10 years bad sleep

I turned a really bad month to a couple bad years
Numbed out, getting wasted, running from fear
Thought the end was near
But I’m still here, now

All I need is good things
But all my shit ain’t working
Not been how I should since
Forgetting what ain’t bad is good things

Good things
Good things
Good things
Good things
Good
