Grant Bentley: Music

Good To Her

(Grant Bentley)
August 1, 2015
Written by Grant Bentley
I wrote this song as a compliment to a special girl I knew at Acalanes High School and premiered it at the reunion party in October 2010. Everyone wanted to know who it was written for, but I'll never tell...
I’m gonna see her again.
And look straight into her eyes.
Do my best to hide.
Forty years of surprise.

I’ll probably touch her hand
To show her that I still care.
The passage of time is not fair.
I could never be there.

CHORUS:
I hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER.
I hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER through the ages, through the pages of our lives.

She’s gonna look real good
I gotta stay in control.
So many secrets she told
From the depths of her soul.

REPEAT CHORUS
I hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER
Hope they’ve been good, so GOOD TO HER.

BRIDGE:
I was the one when her lovin’ began
Two of us walkin’ before we ran
Letting her go was part of the plan
In my heart I’m still her man.

Before she goes back home
And says goodbye to the past
I’ll say somethin’ real fast
“Your sweet memory will last”

I hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER.
I hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER through the ages, through the ages…
Hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER
Hope they’ve been good, so GOOD TO HER.

Hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER
Hope they’ve been GOOD TO HER
