You're a prison I can't escape
You're a decision I never make
Heard me laughing
You heard me weep and moan

Oh- when it's good, it's so, so good
When it's gone, it's gone

They say time will kill the pain
I say pain is gonna kill my time
Lord won't you save me
Or leave me alone

Cause when it's good, it's so, so good
When it's gone, it's gone
Oh- gone

I hang your picture right above my mind
Don't do anything you can't deny
I could never be your pawn

Oh- cause when it's good, it's so, so good
When it's gone, it's gone

Some drink to remember
Some to forget
Some for satisfaction
Some to regret
I hope a brighter day to you I've shown

Oh- cause when it's good, it's so, so good
And when it's gone, it's gone
When it's gone, it's gone
When it's gone, it's gone
When it's gone, Oh- it's gone
