Good for You 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 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 something 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?

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

[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?

[HEIDI, JARED, & ALANA]
I'll just sit back while you run
​the show
Is that good for you?
Good for 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 I change the story?

All the words that I can't take back
Like a train coming off the track
'Cause the rails and the bolts all crack

I've got to find a way to
Stop it, stop it! Just let me out!


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

[ALANA, JARED, HEIDI, & EVAN]
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


So you got what you always wanted

About “Good for You”

Evan’s mom, Heidi, finds out about the Murphys after being invited over for dinner, where the Murphys' offer to pay for Evan to go to college. Heidi feels like she got replaced for a “better” family and flips out.

Meanwhile, Alana gets suspicious about Evan and Connor’s relationship and notices that the whole story does not make sense as Connor said he was getting better in the fake emails, but then killed himself after all. Alana gets actually emotional for the first time in the show, telling Evan that she knows what it is like to feel invisible and like no one would notice if she’d just disappear.

Evan also gets in a fight with Jared, when he asks him to write more emails showing that Connor was getting worse. Jared, in turn, becomes angry that Evan seems to be abusing their friendship for personal gain, and repeatedly Evan has been losing touch with Jared, and at this point in the musical, Evan seems to be using Jared more as his mindless slave than as the friend he desperately longed for at the beginning of the musical.
