Be Good To Yourself

Album: Raised on Radio (1986)
Charted: 90 9
  • Runnin' out of self-control
    Gettin' close to an overload
    Up against a no win situation
    Shoulder to shoulder, push and shove
    I'm hangin' up my boxin' gloves
    I'm ready for a long vacation

    Be good to yourself when, nobody else will
    Oh be good to yourselYou're walkin' a high-wire, caught in a crossfire
    Oh be good to yourself*

    When you can't give no more
    They want it all but you gotta say no
    I'm turnin' off the noise that makes me crazy
    Lookin' back with no regrets
    To forgive is to forget
    I want a little piece of mind to turn to Writer/s: John Friga, Neal Schon, Stephen Perry
