Lyrics

(Source: Faith and Courage)

Sure hate to see u looking so sad.
Delicate man, it needn't be that bad.
U sit with me and I will listen.
You'll feel much better when u open.
U said all u want was a good time.
It's a big hill u have to climb,
And u got to be willing.
U stand tall and u be strong,
U have ruthless compassion
For yourself and for everyone.
Yeah, it's hard, but it can be done.
I know you've every right to feel grief.
You've not had anything that u need.
But u put your head on my shoulder,
'Til I whisper u something,
'Til I whisper u something.
It don't take much to have a good time:
A lot of lovemaking and a little wind,
And u got to be willing.
U stand tall and u be strong,
U have ruthless compassion
For yourself and for everyone.
Yeah, it's hard, but it can be done.
U put your head on my shoulder,
'Til I whisper u something,
'Til I whisper u something.
It's a long walk towards a good time,
LIke a big hill u have to climb,
And u got to be willing.
It don't take much to have a good time:
A lot of lovemaking and a little wind,
And u got to be willing.
If you've never seen a good time,
If you've never seen a good time,
If you've never seen a good time,
How would u recognise one?
How would u recognise one?
How would u even find one?
How would u, if you've never seen a good time?
If you've never seen a good time,
If you've never seen a good time,
How would u recognise one?
