lyrics

It’s Saturday
You rub your eyes and reach
for your glasses and the coffee machine

I wash my face
Smooth out the wrinkled sheets
while I try to forget a gloomy dream

And then you come out from the kitchen and notice me
You pull me close and wrap your arms ’round me
And I find comfort just beneath your shoulder
Hear your heart beat, and my bad dream is over

You are so good for me
Honey, if you only knew how good you are for me
You are so good for me

I work from home
and take a shower at three
Leave the laundry and the dishes undone

Inspiration won’t come
There’s nothing I’ve achieved
and after five, my self-esteem is close to none

But then you come in through the front door and notice me
You take me out to dinner at that cafe down the street
The way you care for me, I can feel it all over
Your hand touches mine, and my bad day is over

You are so good for me
Sugar, if you only knew how good you are for me
You are so good for me
You are so good for me, yeah

We say goodnight
You hold me tight
As darkness closes in on me
You light a candle and play “In a Silent Way”
Chase the ghosts away for another day
You’re like an angel always there for me
What would I do without you here with me

You are so good for me
Baby, if you only knew how good you are for me
Sugar, if you only knew how good you are for me

You are so good for me
You are so good for me
You are so good for me, yeah
You are so good for me
