SOMETIMES THE GOOD GUYS FINISH FIRST

Writers: Holly Knight/ Pat Benatar/ Chris Max

S-u-c-c-e-s-s

That’s the way we spell success

Will we get it the answers yes

S-u-c-c-e-s-s

Small town boy so clean he squeaks

Dressed and polished for the big time dreams

Got a letter from his mama and a boyish grin

Close his eyes one minute and it’ll lead him to the win yeah

You know there’s nothin’ like heaven that won’t get you back

So you get your ass in gear and your mind on track

When wheels start turning things start to falling into place

You’ll be suprised what you can do with some intelligence and taste Yeah

 

Sometimes the good guys finish first

Sometimes your best is all it takes

You know that sometimes the good guys finish first

Sometimes the good guys

finish first

 

Back door logic turn your head around

Use the front door and avoid the crowds

They’re trying to tell you that it can’t be done

Beat the big boys at their own game is half the fun hey hey

 

Sometimes the good guys finish first

Sometimes your best is all it takes

You know that sometimes the good guys finish first

Sometimes the good guys finish first

The good guys the good guys

the good guys, finish first

 

Sometimes the good guys finish first

Walkin’ a straight line in reverse

You know that, sometimes the good guys finish first

Sometimes the good guys finish first

 
Lyrics

1. SOMETIMES THE GOOD GUYS FINISH FIRST
 

LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

Writers: Holly Knight/ Mike Chapman

 

We are young

Heartache to heartache we stand

No promises no demands

Love is battlefield

We are strong

No one can tell us we’re wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is battlefield

 

You’re begging me go

then making me stay

why do you hurt me so bad

It would help me to know

do I stand in your way

or am I the best thing you’ve had

Believe me believe me I can’t tell you why

but I’m trapped by your love and I’m chained to your side

 

We are young

Heartache to heartache we stand

No promises no demands

Love is battlefield

We are strong

No one can tell us we’re wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is battlefield

 

And when I’m losing control

will  you turn me away

or touch me deep inside

And when all this gets old

will it still feel the same

there’s no way this will die

But if we get much closer

I could lose control

and if your  heart surrenders you’ll  need to me to hold

 

We are young

Heartache to heartache we stand

No promises no demands

Love is battlefield

We are strong

No one can tell us we’re wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is battlefield

 

 
Lyrics

2. LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD
 

INVINCIBLE

Writers: Holly Knight/ Simon Climie

 

This bloody road remains a mystery

this sudden darkness fills the air

What are we waiting for

won’t anybody help us

what are we waiting for

 

We can’t afford to be innocent

Stand up and face the enemy

It’s a do or die situation

We will be invincible

This shattered dream you cannot justify

we’re gonna scream until were satisified

What are we running for

we’ve got the right to be angry

what are we running for

when there’s nowhere we can run to anymore

We can’t afford to be innocent

Stand up and face the enemy

Its a do or die situation

We will be invincible

And with the power of conviction

There is no sacrifice

It’s a do or die situation

We will be invincible

 
Lyrics

Full Title: Synchronistic Wanderings

‘Sometimes The Good Guys Finish First is a song that I wrote with Pat and writer/singer, Chris Max for a Michael J. Fox movie, The Secret Of my Success. It was never on a Benatar album but appeared in the movie and soundtrack. It was only just now when Pat put out this anthology record that it made it on to a Benatar record.  The liner notes are fun to read. Definately a must for true Benatar fans’. –HK
