So Far So Good

(Tom Barlow)

So Far So Good brings new life to the old joke, plumbing the despair of a man who encounters a woman who he hopes is his salvation but proves to be anything but. It's dark humor should proved a good counterpoint to a rollicking tune.

You caught me looking, yeah, that’s true, I could of kept walking, and so could you, But you danced by, that was all that it took You snagged me sinker, line and hook. So suave, so sleek, so debonair, You looked demure but au contraire Your legs were long but your fuse was lit I threw away caution you threw a fit Chorus: A man dived from the hundredth floor I saw him as he hurtled by. I asked how his day was going “So far so good” was his reply. Like a moth to a flame or a fish to a worm, No matter how I shook and squirmed I was trapped I was entranced I never really had a chance. By then it was too late to quit By then I knew I didn’t know shit By then you’d given me a taste And X XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXXX X XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXX XXXX X XXX XXXX XX X XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX

There are those kids born to disaster, and there doesn't seem to be any way to alter their fate. Part of this destiny is to run into people who show them a quicker way to ruin their life. Bobby is such a person, and this sad tale follows his long decline.

A story about a forlorn lover who because of his ardor is unable to see his intended for what she is, murderous and self-involved. The intricate lyrics might fit best in music with an English folk flare, such as that of Pentangle or Richard Thompson.

By Grace Ibe

It's really quite tempting to play fast and loose with people's hearts. However, playing God with their emotions, especially with regard to the concept of love, has uncanny ways of backfiring on the player. Theselyrics are about a player who did just that and now regrets his actions, wishing he could turn back the hands of time.
