  • Looking around the house
    Hidden behind the window and the door
    Searching for signs of life
    But there's nobody home

    Well, maybe I'm just too sure
    Or maybe I'm just too frightened by the sound of it
    Pieces of note fall down, but the letter said

    Aha, it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-aha it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah, good good good good good

    Sitting around the house
    Watching the sun trac shadows on the floor
    Searching for signs of life
    But there's nobody home

    Well, maybe I'll call or I'll write you a letter
    Now maybe we'll see on the fourth of July
    But I'm not too sure, and I'm not too proud
    Well I'm not sure, and I'm not too proud to say

    Aha, it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-aha it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah, so good

    Aha, it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-aha it was good
    Living with you, aha, it was good
    Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah

    Yeah, you were so good
    Yeah, you were so good

  • Brian from Boston, MaThis song has the same chord progression as When I come around by Green day G D Em and C
  • Ron from Mcallen, TxThought I had heard that this song was partly about a letter Kevin received from a stalker/fan who had broke into his home.
  • Cory from Morden, CanadaThis song was featured in the movie "Angus" circa 1994.
  • Anonnymous from Nashville, TxThis song is so good. Kevin Griffin is so good at writing, he does write every song on Deluxe, except for Heaven. He also cowrites Collide and Perfect Time of Day, both with Howie Day.
