Stephen Sondheim - Good Thing Going Lyrics

2010 Broadway
Sondheim on Sondheim the Musical - Good Thing Going Lyrics


It started out like a song,
We started quiet and slow with no surprise,
Then one morning I woke to realize
We have a good thing going.

It's not that nothing went wrong,
Some angry moment of course, but just a few,
And only moments no more because we knew
We had a good thing going.

And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?
Half the time you never wanted enough,
Oh wake up, I don't make that a crime,
And while it's going along,
You take for granted some love will wear away.

We took for granted a lot, and still I say,
It could have kept on growing,
Instead of just kept on,
We had a good thing going, going, gone.

And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?
Half the time you never wanted enough,
Oh wake up, I don't make that a crime,
And while it's going along,
You take for granted some love will wear away.

We took for granted a lot, and still I say,
It could have kept on going,
Instead of just kept on,
We had a good thing going, going, gone.
