Courteeners, The - How Good It Was Lyrics




And then she's here and then she's gone,
Never to be seen again,
And then she's here and then she's gone,
Never to be seen again.

I'm trying not to think of her
But think of nothing else,
And the sight of her shoes
At the end of the bed,
And the gap on the wall
Where she hangs up her jacket
I try not to think of her
But you see I'm on a losing streak,
And the bathroom's is bare,
And the kitchen's cold,
And the nights are long,
Now try and remember...

How good it was, even if it's over
Please remember,
They way that we were in our own little world
Back when we were young,
How good it was, even if it's over
Please recall
The time that we said that we'd never regret
Back when we were young

And then she's here and then she's gone
Never to be seen again,
And then she's here and then she's gone
Never to be seen again.

I try not to think of you
But think of nothing else,
And here's to you out and enjoying
Yourself well I hope that
You are but not that much,
Are you checking your phone
To see if I care?
Are you secretly wishing
I want you there?
Do you still think of me favourably?
I hope that you do,
Please say you remember...

How good it was, even if it's over
Please remember,
They way that we were in our own little world
Back when we were young,
How good it was, even if it's over
Please recall
The time that we said that we'd never regret
Back when we were young

How good it was, even if it's over
Please remember,
They way that we were in our own little world
Back when we were young,
How good it was, even if it's over
Please recall
The time that we said that we'd never regret
Back when we were young

    And then she's here and then she's gone,
    Never to be seen again,
    And then she's here and then she's gone,
    Never to be seen again.

    But think of nothing else,
    And the sight of her shoes
    At the end of the bed,

    I try not to think of her
    But you see I'm on a losing streak,
    And the bathroom's is bare,
    And the kitchen's cold,
    And the nights are long,

    Back when we were young

    And then she's here and then she's gone

    And then she's here and then she's gone
    Never to be seen again.

  19. david mctaggart

    choooooooooonn

  20. Connor Moss

    not being funny if Courteeners are such sellouts and all you people comment saying how crap they are now, how come the video only has 10 dislikes?

  21. Jimi Bhoy

    Best cunts ever

  22. Hafizh Mulia

    If you are really a courteeners fan, you will always stick to what they've done. If you now start to unlike them, just listen to a fuckin fallowfield hillbilly. They said that it didn't even matter who liked the band first or who liked them more. That song predicted about these hatred on the new album pretty much.

    Esther Adair

    +Hafizh Mulia Oh yeah man, I totally agree. Peace. I frickin love the Courtineers <£££££3333 #1 fan m8

    innes king

    +Lacey Owl #1 fan and cant spell their name properly. sound

    Ben H2

    innes king pretty sure he's taking the piss mate

  23. HD Trinidad

    Jam 88.3 FM Brought me here

  24. Rab M

    best band about at the moment

  25. Hu Fc

    Hope this goes off at heaton park!

  26. Anthony T

    People are way too hard on this band saying things like "sellouts", "no good after st jude" etc. They are a top band that are experimenting and developing as artist. When you look back in a few years time they'll sound great and they'll stand the test of time.

  27. Will Trotter

    v fest 2010 i remember

  28. John Donegan

    What a load of shite!! How they ever got signed is beyond me. They just get worse. They were bad enough when they wanted to be oasis but now they've gone all 80's pop and not in good way. Shockingly poor!

    John Donegan

    I'm entitled to my opinion and I believe I speak with other like minded people. check out other comments And the lack of fan base. Buff said!!!

    Alfiec123455

    Lack of a fan base you mad

    Anthony Parkinson

    +John Donegan Imagine selling out 5 nights at the Apollo, and Heaton Park in 15 minutes... Lack of a fan base my arse.

    Grace Litherland-Clews

    Shite? Are you deaf? Yeah you're entitled to your opinion but that doesn't mean to have to express it all over the internet does it?

    booge b

    You a spice girl fan ?

  29. MJPICKify

    My god!! only has 60,000 views. These guys are one of the best bands around at the moment. Just shows you that the kids like the bullshit thats in the charts. Gutted. Ah well, still one of my favourite bands and song.

    mankz103

    Not all kids like bullshit in the chart :)

    Caitlin Stevens - George

    @MJPICKify i HATE the music in the charts, cannot stand it! This is real music and I love it - and I'm only 16. Only know very few people my age who enjoy bands like these guys :)

  30. AHFootballVideos

    Real courteeners fans know how good the album is

    jord bark

    AHFootballVideos concrete love for the album!

  31. Lauren Brownhill

    Loved these guys at Reading

  32. Tony Hodgkinson

    Great band but nobody knows them outside of Manchester really

    Sam Littlewood

    @Tony Hodgkinson You'll be rather surprised! Massive up north! No one knows them lower than Manchester.

    Tony Hodgkinson

    I agree, quality band though

    kai

    BBH 95

    I'm from Italy and I really like them :D

  33. Katie Kookaburra

    Bloody love Courteeners but not sure I like the vid. Fave vid is Last Kiss!! Ps GO VEGAN!

    Katie Kookaburra

    OMG I nearly just replied to my OWN comment thinking it was someone else haha. It was a notification to say someone had 'liked it'. Silly me! Still agree with my own comment though. 

  34. haya mobayed

    yes, i love it.

  35. russ schofield

    how the mighty have fallen!  from on the verge of taking over the world with 2 amazing albums to this???  new order tribute act!!  terrible

    Tashisabelle Brown

    New order tribute act, what are you on?

    russ schofield

    @Tashisabelle Brown a chair, what are you on that's made you grow a tash isabelle???  there garbage now hard pill to swallow I know let downs ,  drugs + ego =  nothing,   take a leaf out of thom yorkes book instead of thinking hes johnny marr morrisey and noel Gallagher rolled into 1

    Phil Bagwell

    @russ schofield I'd rather he tried to be Mozza, Marr and Noel than a cunt who sings about trees getting chopped down.

    russ schofield

    true, don't know that many lumberjacks in a band though!!

    Mier1234

    Sold out shows at old Trafford and Heaton park would suggest they’ve not fallen all that far...
    God bless the band.

  36. Nick Byfield

    1 not liked slap time

  37. Danny Jones

    Would be a good fifa 15 track...

    Alan MacQueen

    Would be a better pes soundtrack

  38. Atika Hasri

    Why are they not noticed much for gods sake?

    Carl Barnett

    Oasis last gig was V festival Stafford!

  39. Josh Riley

    I've gone off these loads I loved the first two albums hated the third wonder what the fourth is like!

  44. Keyz Davidson

    Jack Duncan fuckin qaulity

  45. Kenneth Kelly

    Liam Fray is the man. x

  46. donlogan666

    very catchy. should be massive but charts full of guff and probs won't get a look in

    Starry&Bohemian

    @donlogan666 Ben Kingsley vs Marco Pantani (mirror me mirror you)

    Blonks T

    Guff is a good word

  47. GrifterUno

    Damn! As soon as I heard it, just brought all theses memories of ex-lovers. Some of them friends I see from time to time, some girls I haven't seen in such a long time but I always hope they have a nice moment when they reminisce of me. Probably some would be very old talking about life to a grandchild saying something like "...well, let me tell you child; when I was young before I met your Grandfather I met a very nice young man..." Ahh, Courteeners manage to bring a knot to my throat and a tear to my eye with nostalgia; and to the señoritas I loved: "even if it's over, please remember"...
