Good Days - SZA

The Experience: Worry. Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind...

The Vibe: Worry.

The Topic: Heartbreak. Hope. Despair.

The Tension:  Still wanna try, still believe in good day (Hope) VS. Still worry that I wasted the best of me on you, baby, you don't care (Despair).



Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Good Days: You're fighting a war in your mind. You want to hope. But armored fate is impervious to your dreams and hopes. Is positive thinking a crutch? Can it help you limp along to better days? Or is it just escapism?

Ask yourself: What motivates your hope?

Album:  - (2020)

LYRICS:

Good day in my mind, safe to take a step out
Get some air now, let your edge out
Too soon, I spoke, you be heavy in my mind
Can you get the heck out?
I need rest now, got me bummed out
You so, you so, you, baby, baby, babe
I've been on my empty mind sh-t

I try to keep from losin' the rest of me
I worry that I wasted the best of me on you, babe
You don't care
Said, "Not tryna be a nuisance, this is urgent"
Tryna make sense of loose change
Got me a war in my mind
Gotta let go of weight, can't keep what's holding me
Choose to watch while the world break up in front of me

All the while, I'll await my armored fate with a smile
Still wanna try, still believe in (good days), good days
Always inside (Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind)
Good day living in my mind

Tell me I'm not my fears, my limitations
I'll disappear, if you let me
Feeling like, yeah (On your own)
Feeling like Jericho
Feeling like Job when he lost his sh-t
Gotta hold my own, my cross to bear alone, I
Ooh, played and dipped, way to kill the mood
Know you like, that sh-t
Can't groove it
Baby, ba-baby, heavy on my empty mind sh-t

I gotta keep from losin' the rest of me (Rest of me)
Still worry that I wasted the best of me on you, babe
You don't care
Said, "Not tryna be a nuisance, this is urgent" (It's urgent)
Tryna make sense of loose change
Got me a war in my mind (My mind)
Gotta let go of weight, can't keep what's holding me
Choose to watch while the world break up in front of me

All the while, I'll await my armored fate with a smile
Still wanna try, still believe in (good days), good days
Always sunny inside (Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind)
Good day living in my mind

Gotta get right, tryna free my mind before the end of the world
I don't miss no ex, I don't miss no text
I choose not to respond
I don't regret, just pretend shit never happened
Half of us layin' waste to our youth, it's in the present
Half of us chasin' fountains of youth and it's in the present now

Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind
You've been making me feel like I'm
Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind
