When You Got A Good Thing

Anyone who has read my blog for a period of time has more than likely realized that I’m a “feel good” music junky. At any given point, I always have a “theme song” – this song is usually playing over and over while I sit at my desk or I find myself humming it as I drive. A mantra to keep my perspective in check.


One of my real life close friends, Sarah, is getting married in August. She recently was kind enough to share her first dance song with me – “When You Got A Good Thing” by Lady Antebellum.

Everybody keeps telling me I'm such a lucky man,
Lookin' at you standing there, I know I am.
Barefoot beauty with eyes that blue,
Sunshine sure looks good on you, I swear.

Oh I can't believe I finally found ya, baby.
Happy ever after, after all this time.
Oh there's gonna be some up and downs,
But with you to wrap my arms around, I'm fine.

So baby, hold on tight.
Don't let go!
Hold on to the love we're makin',
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know, when you got a good thing.

You know you keep bringin' out the best in me,
And I need you now, even more than the air I breathe
You can make me laugh when I want to cry.
This will last forever, I just know.

So baby, Hold on tight.
Don't let go!
Hold on to the love we're makin',
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know, when you got a good thing.

We got a good thing, baby!
Whoa!

So Hold on tight.
Baby, don't let go!
Hold on to the love we're makin',
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know,

Oh, You gotta know,
Oh, You gotta know,
You gotta know.
When you got a good thing.

We got a good thing Baby

I had never heard this song until Sarah played it as we were driving home one day. As I sat there listening to the words, imagining her twirling around the dance floor staring lovingly into the eyes of her husband, I was overcome with joy. I realized that no matter what may be happening, I too have a good thing. A blessing – a companionship – an anchor in stormy weather. I believe this song depicts marriage beautifully – perfectly. Happily ever after with a side of ups and downs. I’ve played it non-stop over the past few days as a reminder of what I found almost two years ago staring into the eyes of my husband during our first dance: A promise, a commitment, a happily ever after with a side of ups and down. I promise not to let go.
