Dessa - Good For You Lyrics




I think I could be good for you
I think you're overlooking your best move
I think I could be good for you
Somewhere beneath the surface you do, too

My lipstick on a candy cigarette
Bored backstage in Boston
If you say so, it's only innocent
But I can feel that you're watching

'Cause sometimes when it's late, you get careless
The bourbon gives you away and the veil lifts

I don't bring this up lightly
Don't you think that I might be
Someone you can't forget?
But if you don't think that there's lightning
At the end of the kite string
I don't need another friend

I think I could be good for you
I think you're overlooking your best move
I think I could be good for you
Somewhere beneath the surface you do, too

Bar closed, now it's over
But I guess they still let you smoke here
You said go home now with the rest
But your coat's on my shoulders

No one gets to take both roads
It's all for exes and unknowns
Decide what to keep, who to release
I'm here with fog in my luggage and name in my teeth

Patience is no virtue
For saints out after curfew
Here's your chance, yeah
I can't stand inertia
Won't get parachute rehearsals

Fall for me
Tell me it's not what you wanted honestly

Well, good for you
I think you're overlooking your best move
I think I could be good for you
Somewhere beneath the surface you do, too

(I think I could be good for you)
Aren't you tired of the upper hand?
Don't you want a girl to make you try a little now and then?
I'm the one who's talking to you now
Don't you want to find out if you can win a bigger bet?
(I think I could be good for you)
I know I'm one of the hundreds you could call like it's nothing
But not every time could play [?]
It's not that she's something
Not every match gets met

I think I could be good for you
I think you're overlooking your best move
I think I could be good for you
Somewhere beneath the surface you do, too
I think I could be good for you

  27. K.... ....

    Initially didn't like this song very much, but it has massively grown on me. Dessa does pop well.

  28. S.... ....

    Oof. This cuts deep. I'm good for now, but I can tell this is going on my next heartbreak list.

  29. M.... H....

    Thank you. My best friend has recently got out of a very acrimonious/vitriolic divorce and, finally, found a new potential partner but does not want to come in too heavy or strong. I heard this and sent it to him and said," Send this to her, it will seal the deal and show that you are vulnerable and really into her but not in a stalker kind of way." I just realised it is Dessa hitting the high notes at the end. I thought it was Aby. Wow. She has an amazing vocal range. They need to release the video at the same time as the single and hae all their ducks in a row but I kind of like that she is a bit quirky and not a slick marketing machine.

  30. D.... ....

    Sounds real good and great video. Cool contrast between formal and a fun day out with Dessa.

  31. D.... D....

    Wow, this is hitting me harder then I expected, I've always loved your work Dessa, thank you again"If you don't think there is lightning at the end of the kite string, I don't need another friend" #facts

  34. M.... B....

    She’s the fucking best! <3

  35. R.... ....

    This is the first 'happy' song I've heard by her. I hope that's a reflection of how she's feeling now. She deserves it. love u desssssa!

    R.... ....

    Ditto absolutely. Let her have love and gracious fortune.

    R.... ....

    With the songs she sings "Creates" ya, since the beginning "My mom says, babe, why do you sing songs to bleed out to" . KNSI Minnesota live set :) (I've followed most of the bands live stuff, cause ya know, i love them :) ) WARSAW ALWAYS!!! https://youtu.be/le0LS0RFEbM?t=2189

  36. L.... A....

    Dessa, spreading her wings and show us how. Thank Dessa for strong women!

    This is fantastic! I'm beyond stoked to see that the scenes on the streets were filmed in Mexico City. Hope you'll be able to play here someday!

  45. Z.... F....

    "My attempts at happy songs sound forced, like I'm following instructions I found on a cereal box." Not even a little. This is a wonderful piece.

    Z.... F....

    yeah but...this isn't a happy song?

    Z.... F....

    @Brandon PeQueen i think he was quoting an old statement from dessa about making happy songs, and saying it doesnt apply to this one

  46. L.... ....

    You are a musical treasure, Dessa. Never change who you are. More Doomtree soon??
