The Good Ones - Gabby Barrett

The Experience: A love me like he should one... He doesn't just love me like I would like. He loves me like he actually should.
The Vibe: Content. Happy. Loved.
The Topic: Love.
The Value: Authentic love.
The Tension: Anybody can be good once (people can be good) vs. But he's good all the time (But we're supposed to be perfect).

Music video: What seems like the perfect couple becomes even more perfect when the camera zooms back out from each scene and you discover she's paraplegic. Crippled but still perfectly loved. Because he's one of the good ones. Not content to love, he has to love perfectly. And that makes her perfect too. A second parallel series of shots show Gabby singing alone until her fiancé Cade - the inspiration behind The Good Ones - appears by her side.

The Meaning of The Good Ones: Inspired by her fiancé Cade Foehner. Gabby Barrett lists off what makes a man one of the good ones. Nothing to hide: he's a phone call to his parents. Man of faith and principles: he's a bible by his bed. Intimate: he's the t-shirt that I'm wearing. Enthralling: he's the song stuck in my head. Absolutely dependable but still full of life: he's solid and he's steady like the Allegheny runs (the 325-mile long Allegheny river is one of the headwaters of the Ohio river). Purposeful and authentic: he knows just where he's going and he's proud of where he's from. He's the one she was searching for: I've known a couple bad ones but they all led me to him. She's grateful: he's all mine. And hopeful - every one else should search for theirs: we should all find us one they're out there, minus one.

Ask yourself: Are you better because he loves you better?

LYRICS:

He's a phone call to his parents
He's a bible by the bed
He's the t-shirt that I'm wearing
He's the song stuck in my head
He's solid and he's steady
Like the Allegheny runs
He knows just where he's going
And he's proud of where he's from

One of the good ones
He's one of the good ones

A love me like he should one
Like he wrote the book one
The kind you find when you don't even look one
Anybody can be good once
But he's good all the time
He's one of the good ones
And he's all mine
He's one of the good ones

You'll know him when you see him
By the way he looks at me
You'd say he hung the moon
I'd say he hung the galaxy
Nobody does it better
Oh the way he pulls me in
I've known a couple bad ones
But they all led me to him

He's one of the good ones

A love me like he should one
Like he wrote the book one
The kind you find when you don't even look one
Anybody can be good once
But he's good all the time
He's one of the good ones
And he's all mine
He's one of the good ones

We should all find us one
They're out there, minus one
Some of the good ones
Yeah I got a good one

A love me like he should one
Like he wrote the book one
The kind you find when you don't even look
Anybody can be good once
But he's good all the time
He's one of the good ones
And he's all mine
He's one of the good ones
