​Good Life

This song is by Bruce Carroll and appears on the album Walk On (1993) and on the compilation For The Record (1997).

Talked to a friend
Who'd come into quite a fortune
With one big deal
He was an overnight success
He had it all
Everything that seemed important
Then one day it slipped away
And he felt the emptiness
And as I watched his bridges burn
Once again I learned
That the treasures of this world
Will all go up in smoke
So in God, I place my hope

Of living the good life
I got everything I need
Totally satisfied
With the faith He's given me
A life of overflowing joy
With real security
He's given me the good life
I'm gonna live it faithfully

(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'm an average man
With average kinds of problems
The bills stack up
How am I gonna make ends meet
But I can't complain
'Cause He's pulled me through so often
And I may go without a time or two
But I don't lack for what I need
'Cause I know that my reward
Is in the hands of the Lord
And the worst of circumstances
Work out for the best
How did I become so blessed

Of living the good life
I got everything I need
I'm totally satisfied
With the faith He's given me
A life of overflowing joy
With real security
He's given me the good life
I'm gonna live it faithfully

At times, it seems this life
Could be much better
But I know it won't be long until forever

I'm living the good life
I got everything I need
I'm totally satisfied
With the faith He's given me
A life of overflowing joy
With real security

I'm living the good life
I got everything I need
I'm totally satisfied
With the faith He's given me
A life of overflowing joy
With real security
He's given me the good life
I'm gonna live it faithfully

He's given me the good life
I've got a good life
