The Chicks – Hope It’s Something Good


There I go trying to keep myself distracted
So I make the bed, call a friend, do the dishes
Should I have known? Should I have seen a sign?
When did you know? Why’d you pretend to try?

If you’re gone
I hope it’s really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin’
Gave up on the moon and back
Thought you’d found a better half
I hope it’s something good

Highs and lows, we fought our wars with silence
I’d have called you out but, baby, I knew you’d deny it
After so long I learned to hold my tongue
And now that you’re done I get to write this song

And if you’re gone
I hope it’s really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin’
Gave up on the moon and back
Thought you’d found a better half
Oh, I hope it’s something good

If you’re gone
I hope it’s really worth it
Twenty years of hanging on
Now it all adds up to nothin’
When you gave up on the moon and back
Thought you’d found your better half
I hope she’s something good
