Something Good

Something good

My father says an artist
is someone who never quits
when nothing keeps a coming
He fights on with his fists

My father says a soldier
is someone with an inner strength
Who’ll keep on going 
’til his knees will bend
And I guess I never fell in line
and I want to quit half the time
But I know
There’s something good in me
There’s something good in me

I feel my every failure
I feel my jealousy
Of everyone better off than me

My father says a pilgrim
sees the journey as his goal
the destination 
is not what will make us whole

And I guess I never fell in line
And I fail more than half the time 
But I know
There’s something good in me 
There’s something good in me
And I try to do my best
and maybe I’ll never be better than the rest
But I hope
I can be good enough for me
if there’s something good in me
