Good Things

Lest anyone think I’ve succumbed to a life of cynical resistance to love based on yesterday’s post about the probability of finding love online, I offer a hopeful song for a Sunday, The BoDeans: Good Things.

I love it’s optimistic, yet realistic, expectation of romance.

And the lyrics:

Sunlight fall down on the fields
Sunlight fall down over me
Work all day, be all that I can be yeah-heh
Say I can say words only simple
Say I can say words only clear
But, oh, I can feel your heart is beating near. Yeah-heh
Haunted love is all that I feel, when you’re passing by
Haunted love is all that I see, it’s there in your eyes
And I say
No, no, no, don’t pass me over No, no, no, don’t pass me by
See I can see good things for you and I
Yeah, good things for you
Give I can give love and attention
Give I can give all time away
Only to one heart I can give today.
Be I can be man full of color
Be I can be man black or white
But only to one heart I can be tonight
Haunted love is all that I feel, when you’re passing by
Haunted love is all that I see, it’s there in your eyes
And I say
No, no, no, don’t pass me over No, no, no, don’t pass me by
See I can see good things for you and I
Yeah, good things for you
Haunted love is all that I see, it’s there in your eyes
And I say
No, no, no, don’t pass me over No, no, no, don’t pass me by
See I can see good things for you and I
Yeah, good things for you
