Good Thing

Lyrics: Robben Ford
Music: Robben Ford

This is a Robben Ford song played with Phil Lesh & Friends on 21 July 2000.

You cover your senses
You cover your eyes
You cover your feelings
You tell yourself lies
It's not a good thing
To do to yourself

You're looking so lonely
You're looking too thin
And I can see your depression
Setting in
It's not a good thing
To do to yourself

I took a walk to the river
I watched the ships roll in
And I thought of you driftin' like you do
Nobody's gonna save you from that life you lead
But somebody's waiting

Open your heart, babe
Open your mind
Open your soul, yeah
Leave the past behind
It'd be a good thing
To do for yourself

I took a walk to the mountain
I watched the birds fly high
And I thought of you locked inside yourself
Nobody's gonna free you from that cage you're in
But somebody's waiting

I took a walk to the mountain
I watched the birds fly high
And I thought of you locked inside yourself
Nobody's gonna free you from that cage you're in
But somebody's waiting

Open your heart, babe
Open your mind
Open your soul, yeah
And leave the past behind
It'd be a good thing
To do for yourself
It'd be a good thing
