A special someone once asked me why I didn’t write any love songs. This was my response. Sometimes you’ve gotta take the bad with the good – but in the end, the good always wins out, if the love is real.

Lyrics

The bad news is, I’m a hard case
I’m bound to see the cloud in every silver lining
The bad news is, I’m a rough place
Seems like trouble is the one thing I’m good at finding
I wish I wasn’t that way
But when you hold me, suddenly everything’s changed

Yeah, the good news is I love you with all my heart
You know I always will
My life ain’t nothing grand – but when you take my hand
It’s a work of art, a destiny fulfilled
This fool becomes a queen when she’s with you
That’s the good news

The bad news is, I’m as stubborn as they come
I’ll cross my arms and stand my ground
Even when I’m wrong
The bad news is, I just might drive you crazy
I’ll fuss and fight and swear I’m right
And you’ll probably never change me
Oh, livin’ with me might not be that easy
But for better or worse, I am yours completely

Yeah, the good news is I love you with all my heart
You know I always will
My life ain’t nothing grand – but when you take my hand
It’s a work of art, a destiny fulfilled
This fool becomes a queen when she’s with you
That’s the good news

I can’t promise you happy ever after
But Baby, this I swear
When you need someone to stand beside you
I will be there

Yeah, the good news is I love you with all my heart
You know I always will
My life ain’t nothing grand – but when you take my hand
It’s a work of art, a destiny fulfilled
This fool becomes a queen when she’s with you
All my dreams are finally coming true
That’s the good news
That’s the good news
You’re the good news
