Lyrics

[HEIDI]
So you found a place where the grass is greener
And you jumped the fence to the other side
Is it good?
Are they giving you a world I could never provide?

Well I hope you're proud of your big decision
Yeah I hope it's all that you want and more
Now you're free
Well I hope you're proud of your big decision

Yeah, I hope it's all that you want and more
Now you're free
From the agonizing life you were living before

And you say what you need to say
So that you get to walk away
It would kill you to have to stay trapped
When you've got somethin' new
Well I'm sorry you had it rough
And I'm sorry I'm not enough
Thank God they rescued you

So you got what you always wanted
So you got your dream-come-true
Good for you
Good for you, you, you
Got a taste of a life so perfect
So you did what you had to do
Good for you
Good for you

[ALANA]
Does it cross your mind to be slightly sorry?
Do you even care that you might be wrong?
Was it fun?
Well I hope you had a blast
While you dragged me along

[JARED]
And you say what you need to say
And you play who you need to play
And if somebody's in your way
Crush them and leave them behind

[JARED/ALANA]
Well, I guess if I'm not of use
Go ahead, you can cut me loose
Go ahead now, I won't mind

[HEIDI]
I'll shut my mouth and I'll let you go
Is that good for you?
Would that be good for you, you, you?

[ALANA/HEIDI]
I'll just sit back while you run the show
Is that good for you?
Would that be good for you, you, you?

[EVAN]
All I need is some time to think
But the boat is about to sink
Can't erase what I wrote in ink
Tell me how could you change the story?

All the words that I can't take back
Like a train coming off the track
'Cause the rails and my bones all crack
I've got to find a way to
Stop it stop it
Just let me out

[ALANA/HEIDI/JARED]
So you got what you always wanted
So you got your dream come true

[EVAN/ALANA/JARED/HEIDI]
Good for you
Good for you, you, you
Got a taste of a life so perfect
Now you say that you're someone new
Good for you
Good for you
Good for you
Good for you

[ALANA/HEIDI/JARED]
So you got what you always wanted
