Elle King - Good Thing Gone Lyrics




(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

Never wanted to let you down
Never wanted us to fight
Oh, sweet love o' mine
I guess this is goodbye to you and I

Time is a stubborn affair
The distance was too much to bear
Oh, with a heavy heart
I must leave the one I love

We could've tried a bit harder, mmh
I could've practiced more patience, mmh
Look at this good love we've wasted
Another good thing gone
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

Neither one of us is wrong
Neither one of us is right
I never fully had faith, you see
'Cause I always knew you'd
Fall out of love with me

We could've tried a bit harder, mmh
I could've practiced more patience, mmh (Ooh)
Look at this good love we've wasted, uh-huh
Another good thing gone

So, why should I change,
If love always ends this way?

You couldn't put down that last drink
I couldn't get that shit past me

We could've tried a bit harder, mmh
But I just ain't got that much patience, uh-uh
Look at this good love we've wasted, ooh
Another good thing gone (Ooh, ooh)
Another good thing gone (Ooh, ooh)
(What a shame)
Another good thing gone

  1. Eirene Vita

    Never wanted to let you down
    Never wanted us to fight
    Oh, sweet love of mine
    I guess this is goodbye to you and I
    Time is a stubborn affair
    The distance was too much to bear
    Oh, with a heavy heart
    I must leave the one I love
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    I could've practiced more patience, mm
    Look at this good love we've wasted, mm
    Another good thing gone
    Neither one of us is wrong
    Neither one of us is right
    I never fully have faith, you see
    'Cause I always knew you'd fall out of love with me
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    I could've practiced more patience, mm
    Look at this good love we've wasted, uh
    Another good thing gone
    So why should I change?
    If love always ends this way
    You couldn't put down that last trick
    You couldn't get that shit past me
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    But I just ain't got that much patience, uh uh
    Look at this good love we've wasted, mm
    Another good thing gone
    Another good thing gone
    What a shame
    Another good thing gone

    This song tells the story of my 15 year marriage to a narcissist. He couldn't throw down that last trick (gaslight), I couldn't let that shit past me (I thought we were happy). Thank you for this healing song.

  28. London L.

    I’ve recently realized how much Elle is a lot like Dolly Parton. After listening to their Collaboration holdin on to you. I couldn’t believe how much Elle sounded like Dolly. Listening to this song reminds me of Dolly’s song I will always love you. Sung with Emotion just like how Elle sings this song.

  29. MIFNP

    She did this in one take; started to weep uncontrollably, walked out of the studio when she finished, and refused to lay down another track. That's Elle.

  30. Azza Boughalleb

    I'm getting some beth hart vibes. Am I the only one?

    Elle, you are one of the few mainstream pop singers who still has any real soul and authenticity left. I really love it when you put out songs like this that just ooze passion, heart, and bare naked soul.

    Verse 1]
    Never wanted to let you down
    Never wanted us to fight
    Oh, sweet love o' mine
    I guess this goodbye to you and I

    [Verse 2]
    Time is a stubborn affair
    The distance was too much to bear
    Oh, with a heavy heart
    I must leave the one I love

    [Chorus]
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    I could've practiced more patience, mm
    Look at this good love we've wasted
    Another good thing gone

    [Verse 3]
    Neither one of us is wrong
    Neither one of us is right
    I never fully have faith, you see
    'Cause I always knew you'd fall out of love with me

    [Chorus]
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    I could've practiced more patience, mm
    Look at this good love we've wasted
    Another good thing gone

    [Bridge]
    So why should I change?
    If love always ends this way

    [Chorus]
    You couldn't put down that ashtray
    I couldn't get that shit passed me
    We could've tried a bit harder, mm
    But I just ain't got that much patience, mm
    Look at this good love we've wasted
    Another good thing gone

    Barbara Chase

    Thank you!

    MIFNP
