Good For A While
by Memphis Evans

Well I was driving an empty road in the middle of a desert as fast as I could go
And I'd no reason to believe I'd ever be anything there but all alone
But there you were with the wind at your back
Flaggin' me down in the middle of the track but to the left of the dial
And for a miracle mile
Baby we were good for a while
Good for a while

Back home on the shore we rode the ferris wheel and the merry go round and around
And our hearts were on fire in the salty air and with the carnival sounds
and I knew just how it would feel
to have a love that I knew was real
It was there in your smile
as we jumped the turnstyle
and I thought we'd be Good for a while
Good for a while

solo - guitar then flute on big third line

Now all the hot rod angels and the beautiful strangers've gone home to the skies
And I know you've had your time and they've come and they've gone but I'm not like those other guys
I've arrived in the promised land
And it's here that I'll make my stand or I'll die on trial
So baby end your exile
and together we'll be Good for a while
Good for a while

Last night I was running through a terrible dream in a forest that I couldn't really see
I was covered in sweat and when I came to a clearing I fell down to my knees
All I knew came to a single thing
I had wheels but I needed your wings and your angel style
And now I know I'll
forever be Good for a while
Good for a while
Good for a while
Good for a while
