The Good Things lyrics

Demo version, from mayor of simpleton single.
Released in 1989.
Four-track recording.

Though your heart desires the things that money can buy
Emptiness lies through the glass, I shield your eyes

Theres nothing out there for you, my dear
Theres nothing out there for you
Let me tell you about the good things
The good things

I know your head is full of big ideas
You aint missing anything, have no fear

I have touched the grass so green on the other side
It will grieve you and deceive you with disguise

Theres nothing out there for you, my dear
Theres nothing out there for you
Let me tell you about the good things
The good things

I know you pine for things you see in magazines
That world brings heartache, now its not real, believe me

Remember all of those good things
You know you cant buy all those good things
