lyrics

GOOD LOVE
What you hold there in your hand
Is the fragment of a moment
Compressed by time and space into a perfect gem

You see I left it there with you
To span the great divide
Between you and me
And your love and all your pride

Well you’re cordially invited to this parting little thought
That all your words can’t stop the setting sun
Because when the night surrounds you
It’s not the light you seek
It’s knowing that I’m hiding in the dark

Good love is hard to find
Good love takes work and time
But when you know the feeling’s right
Good love is what you’ll find

Well this love of yours and mine
It has stood the test of time
And don’t worry dear
I’ll be right here down the line

Good love will lead us on
Through the turning of the days
Through the happiness and the dust and the decay

We’ll I cordially invite you to this parting little thought
That all your words can’t stop the setting sun
Because when the night surrounds you
It’s not the light you seek
It’s knowing that I’m hiding in the dark

Well sometimes she may speak too softly or maybe not at all
Or he may leave his socks out on the floor
But these little things don’t matter within a grander scheme
It’s the love we have together and the bigger things unseen

Good love is hard to find
Good love takes work and time
But when you know the feeling’s right
Good love is what you’ll find

about

Portland Senator Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"With a hint of Avett Brothers’ vocals and instrumentation with touches of Pearl Jam and The Decemberists, Portland Senator has created an honest and unique take on the indie folk-rock genre. The Philly locals have a hypnotizing air about them worthy of repeated listenings."
