Must Have Done Something Right

Album: Five Score and Seven Years Ago (2006)
  • We should get jerseys 'cause we make a good team
    But yours would look better than mine 'cause you're out of my league

    And I know that it's so cliched to tell you that everyday
    I spend with you is the new best day of my life
    And everyone watching us just turns away with disgust
    This jealously, they can see that we've got it going on

    I'm racking my brain for a new improved way
    To let you know, you're more to me than what I know how to say
    You're okay with the way this is going to be
    'Cause this is going to be the best thing we've ever seen

    If anyone could make me a better person, you could
    All I gotta say is I must have done something good
    You came along one day and you rearranged my life
    All I gotta say is I must have done something right
    I must have done something right

    And maybe I'm just lucky 'cause it's hard to believe
    Believe that somebody like you'd end up with someone like me

    And I know that it's so cliched to talk about you this way
    But I'll push all my inhibitions aside
    It's so very obvious to everyone watching us
    That we have got something real good going on

    I'm racking my brain for a new improved way
    To let you know, you're more to me than what I know how to say
    You're okay with the way this is going to be
    'Cause this is going to be the best thing we've ever seen

    If anyone could make me a better person, you could
    All I gotta say is I must have done something good
    You came along one day and you rearranged my life
    All I gotta say is I must have done something right
    I must have done something right

    If anyone could make me a better person, you could
    All I gotta say is I must have done something good
    You came along one day and you rearranged my life
    All I gotta say is I must have done something right

    If anyone could make me a better person, you could
    All I gotta say is I must have done something good
    You came along one day and you rearranged my life
    All I gotta say is I must have done something right

    I must have done something right
    I must have done something right
    I must have done something right Writer/s: MATTHEW THIESSEN

  • Josa from Des Moines, IaPlease, you guys. Christians can write love songs, I don't understand why people don't think it's possible. God created love... and girls. And kinda made it that way. This song is obviously about a girl, they've said it in interviews, and a lot of these lines don't match being about God ("everyday I spend with you is the new best day of my life and everyone watching us just turns away with disgust this jealously, they can see that we've got it going on.").
  • Eric Martin from Cavite, PhilippinesThis song can be about God, or the girl. Nothing else. But this is a great song! :)
  • Steve from Winnipeg, MbSorry Erik, but have you seen the video, it's all about a girl, which is not a bad thing, they still have plenty of really good Christian songs
  • Rhianna from Somewhere, OhBoth of you are correct. Many Christian bands make their music in a way that can reach both audiences-their Christian listeners as well as the secular music audience. It can be interpreted in any way the listener chooses to do so.
  • Anna from Ottawa, KsActually, this song can be interpreted in many different ways. Yes, Relient K is Christian, but that doesn't mean every single one of their songs is about God.
  • Erik from Richmond, VaThis is a Christain Band. It is about God, and how he does not deserve the grace gieven to him from God.
