KT Tunstall - Maybe It's A Good Thing Lyrics




All this choosing-wrongs losing ground
Often feeling lost, has brought it out.

But I'm looking for a love, not a heartache
Yes I'm gonna take my time
Even though I know from the handshake
If I wanna make you mine

I am walking blind
Maybe that's a good thing,
Maybe that's a good thing...

...that I can't see what's coming
And I don't much care
Life will become one big stupid "Truth or Dare"
Maybe it's a good thing

Temper me with dignity today
Ever shoot your silver through my veins

Looking for a change in my make-up
Break apart and start again
I will ask a question
You will win my heart and then...

...I will send you a sign
Maybe that's a rare thing,
Maybe that's a rare thing.

When a light comes blinding
And it stops me dead
I'll always remember the time you sat next to me and you said,
"Maybe it's a good thing."

When a light comes blinding
And it stops me dead
I'll always remember the time you sat next to me and you said,
"Maybe it's a good thing.
Maybe it's a good thing."

KT Tunstall Maybe It's A Good Thing Comments
  1. Carlos Fernandes

    Brazil...

  2. labémolmineur

    I want to add my voice to the very few who are completely disappointed with this change. Why, oh why, do even the best of artists fall into this very predictable trap after forty? Why are they convinced they need to suddenly be "glamorous", to step down and please and do it the way others do, precisely the opposite of all of the things that the fans loved in the first place? I don't except KT to sing the same, but I expect her to stay honest, and this- please forgive me if I'm wrong- strikes me as dishonest, uncomfortable, a compromise that shouldn't have been made, the beginning of selling out. Yes, many love it, and many will love it, but are they the true KT fans? KT has always been a artist made to sing live. Video clips just never suited her, in my opinion, because she's a song-writer who writes powerful stuff, words that you need to listen to, and everything else, all the visuals and the colors and the outfits and the dancing, is a distraction. She is an incredible presence whose power is greatly lost in edited recordings. She is a natural beauty- why, oh why, are women even like her convinced that they need more, that some remaking of the face at this age is necessary and inevitable, that one has to try desperately to look younger? Is it the US? Is it Los Angeles? No, it's not necessary and inevitable. No, I loved her simple and honest and natural and independent-minded and so fucking talented it brought tears to my eyes. She still is, but I second the YT user that said, she looks so uncomfortable, like she's forcing herself to be what she isn't, to do what she doesn't believe in. This has no fire. It may be good, but it's not fucking gold, and it is pure honesty that makes fucking gold, that makes all the difference between good and amazing. This is so disappointing it makes me cry, as someone who has loved KT for years.

  36. darbara sandhu

    I like K T Tunstall very much

  37. Dor Dirr

    Wth she should have been more popular than that f-cking Justin Gay. She sings 1000 times better than his shitty voice

  38. Prasanna Chavan

    BEST SONG SO FAR!! I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS VIDEO HAS LESS VIEWS!

    Try advertising this song on YouTube. It will make you very famous, I bet.

  39. Filipy Peixoto

    a melhor do mundo ahahahhaha

  40. TalkToTheBody

    Stunningly great 5th album by Kate, she's got a winner with this album

  41. Stuti Shakya

    I love it. Maybe it's a good thing.

  42. Tarun Kumar

    Her voice is so pure

  43. Tarun Kumar

    She's so beautiful, what a lovely voice she has!!!😍🙌🏻

  44. Antonio Ortiz

    A huevo pinche KT esto es lo que quería oír de ti :3 no las mamadas folk de Invisible Empire

  45. luciana Rodriguez

    Yesterday i hugged her omg!!!

    Adrienne M

    luciana Rodriguez she's so appreciative of her fans. such a sweetheart. I'm glad you got to meet her. Met her a few times myself.

    SUM16KWT

    Yeah! she's such a sweet person and a humble musician I met her a week back in Abu Dhabi! she's amazing!

  46. Chris Mallett

    they always played this at my work . cool song, makes me miss my work friends :(

  47. apper2112

    Love KT man!

  48. Harry Cox

    I wonder if this is about her divorce?

    Rachel Fox

    I think the whole album is about her overcoming the sadness she had while writing Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon. According to Wikipedia, this song is about hard choices that turned out to be positive.

  49. Bong Modesto

    Great artist (with a real talent), great song, I don't know about the music video.. I think she need's a good fashion and lifestyle consultant.. Image is everything; talent is just secondary in this business, sad to say.

  50. Prix Silva

    KTTunstall #thebestsongever!

  51. Nadia A Secas

    Alguien tiene alguna traducción?

  52. Rob Main

    Only 150000 views of one of the top 5 songs of 2016. Just shocking. It's amazing.

    Rachel Fox

    Ikr...I'd say it's the best song released in 2016.

  53. Ritesh Ram

    In dancing she's like drake

  54. Lawrence Newman

    I always had a major crush on KT. It's a shame she's a liberal luvvie social justice warrior. She even disowned her stepfather for opposing white genocide and the invasion of his homeland. Such a shame. She also believes in the unproven religion of man-made climate change. It's funny how these artist types are always walking talking liberal lefty automatons.

    Lawrence Newman

    @Claire Brennan Er .... the climate always changes. Nobody denies that. Anthropogenic climate change is the postulation man is causing an extra warming to the climate via emissions.

    Lawrence Newman

    @Claire Brennan Then why do all the climate change believers keep voting for neoliberal parties? If they believed in man made climate change, they'd support deindustrialisation and regression to primitive technology like horse and carts. You can't keep increasing economic growth while reducing emissions. KT is an offender as she jets all over the world and has millions of albums and singles made, which releases emissions .

    I know bullshit when i see it. Man made Climate change is a secular religion many people use to forge an identity and signal their virtue.

    Most people who're most vocal about this issue support killing babies in the womb. They don't care about the future lives of people they will never meet, they care about being perceived as do gooders.

    jerjameswoj

    30 years ago they claimed we were headed for another Ice Age... there is no peer reviewed research that proves humans are adding to global warming or climate change anywhere. The whole "97% of scientists agree" is bullshit. Whenever you ask to see the proof they have none. I'm not saying I don't believe it--but for people to claim it's settled science when there's absolutely no hard research into it....it's intellectually dishonest.

    Rachel Fox

    Lawrence Newman I agree, KT's political views really are a shame. Gotta love her music tho.

    Eoin klein

    Don't listen to her music then. She can do without people like you.

  55. Veronica Rod. C

    I love your music kt! Always your fan!

  56. Ramon Souza

    Essa música é maravilhosa! Amém KT Tunstall <3

  57. Antonio Barrella

    I follow you from the beginning

  58. Lin Stitt

    Enjoyed the song and the video.

  59. Stan yo bro

    Great to hear a real singer with real talent instead of all that voice enhancing screaming shit. The real deal.

    Gavin Hill

    best comment ever....made my day hahahahaha

    Veronica Rod. C

    Oooohh that's soooo true.... Too much screamings... Hahaha

  60. Tony Powell

    she is an amazing talent!

  61. Sabyasachi Chattopadhyay

    song is good , but video is not up to the mark , because of that less views . She has a potential as a singer .

    Rachel Fox

    She has real talent unlike some singers who sit there and lip-sync it.

  62. Laura M10x

    For some reason every time I hear this on the radio, when I hear the intro I always think it's gonna be Kate Bush?! 😂

    Laura M10x

    Good song though 👌

    Rachel Fox

    What station

    Rachel Fox

    I'd love to hear some real music on the radio instead of rambling

    Laura M10x

    Rachel Fox sorry I just realised you replied! I can't remember, it was either Northsound 2 or original 106, both North East Scotland radio stations! Pretty good stations, a lot of mix of old and new songs :)

  63. Jose Costa

    Lovely girl,,,,😊

  64. Denise Hudgens

    I hear that millennial whoop in the chorus, but at least it is cool when she does it. ❤

  65. Rachel Fox

    One of the best songs released this year.

    Rachel Fox

    Nope, it's the best. I love this album too :)

  66. Rachel Fox

    None of her songs have many dislikes ;)

  67. Harry Cox

    Almost 2 months and not even 100,000 views. That why I like her she is so underrated!

    MMD

    Aww, are you so insecure about your own taste that you'd rather artist struggle to make it because it has to be your own thing??

    Rachel Fox

    Deserves more views than 111K.

    Tony Powell

    Troy Dazzle people with good taste in music rate her highly.

    Rachel Fox

    Tony Powell I love this song. I've played kt songs around other people and they're like "dang she's good" so I guess I have a good taste in music ;)

    Tony Powell

    Rachel Fox you have very good taste :-)

  68. Sherri Richmond

    Love it ! She has something that sends shivers when I listen to her

  69. Harry Cox

    This is beautiful, I love how optimistic it is. One of her best songs.

  70. Leigh Turner

    I love this song, the chorus is so darn catchy! Nice message too ^_*

  71. Jo Radcliffe

    Best chart track i've heard in many weeks

  72. Paul Swales

    the video that finnaly proves that KT can't dance, good song tho

    A R godsmRk

    Yes Paul I thought as like.


    Ordinary tree did you know trees genuinely do have faces

  73. nahilsolange

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kate!!!!!! I was having such a SHITTY day and THANK GOD I bumped into such a gem of an album!! Please do NOT think of leaving the music industry ever again!!! U ROCK ❤

  74. Kay

    Great song. The more you listen, the better it gets. :D

    Ellie W

    all the greatest ones are like that :)

  75. Megha Guruprasad

    Oh the beats! This song is killing it. But the video is a little too mishy-mashy for my taste.

  76. Taylor Swift Rules

    Looking forward to seeing you in Cambridge. Loving the new single!

  77. Alice A

    *this is my favorite song of this album!!* ❤♥❤♥❤♥❤♥❤♥❤

    Rachel Fox

    Mine too

  78. Scott Herd

    Those knees.

  79. John Harrier Jr.

    Just got the new album and getting used to it. Listen for 'Run For Home' which I think is one of the best things she has ever done. It blends together all her strengths in a compact pop/rock classic. Somebody is posting what sound like slowed down demo versions of some songs, and that's a shame, try to find and listen to the proper versions.

  80. Dave New

    This video was made in 1970. Good thing the song is ok.

  81. Craig Adendorff

    Channeling Kate Bush...

  82. isa

    i love you, come to brazil <3

  83. folginator

    Great!..........(if you don't watch the video)

    Rachel Fox

    folginator Nothing wrong with the video impo. Why don't ppl like it lol.

  87. Marie Gabrielle

    she is too fucking amazing !!!!!

  88. LordRandal1990
