Good Time is a story about a pick up in a bar. It’s played out every night in thousands of cities around our country. She’s married, and even though he “scores”, he still feels empty. Sex makes us feel better, even if it's only a temporary fix. The chase and game of seduction can become a way of life. We fantasize and are constantly "on the make" in search of someone who can give us the relief we want. Pornography and the secret meetings that end up in bed make us feel alive and validated. If we can get someone else to "go all the way" with us, then we must be okay. As with other addictive behaviors, eventually we need larger more powerful doses.  

Good Time

I see that you're alone
Y'look like someone I once knew
I'm just a little drunk, but do you mind?
I hope I haven't blown
My chances here with you
What I'm about to say sounds like a line

Well, I've made it this far
I came out to have a good time,
And here you are,
I came out to have a good time
And would you like to share a glass of wine?
Cause I'm alone in here
And I came out to have a good time.

This elevator goes so slow
When you look at me that way
I'll ride up and see you to your door
First you tell me "No"
Then your husband's gone, you say,
Sure, you slip into something else, I can't think anymore

Chorus (And even though the evening's going fine)

I'm sorry if I hurt you
God, you kiss like silk and velvet
I'm dizzy and so light that I could fly
You're really good, you know
But I guess I'd better go
I don't know why it is, sometimes I cry

Chorus (And even though your body's holding mine,)

I came out, ... to have a good time.
