“Wasn’t It Good” – performed by Tina Arena

Wouldn’t you know it I’ve lost my courage
Isn’t that funny me lost for words
Not that it really matters ’cause I know you know
And you would have told me yourself if you could

Remember the first time we met each other
You were in your world and I was in mine
Breaking down the barriers we broke all the rules
But wasn’t it good wasn’t it fine

While I took for granted, you took your time
Longing for love oh how we tried
It’s over now that’s understood, but wasn’t it good

So long together, two would be lovers
Caring for flowers that just wouldn’t grow
And in all of our tomorrows, we’ll have yesterday
And wasn’t it good, wasn’t it fine

While I took for granted, you took your time
Longing for love, oh how we tried
It’s over now that’s understood

But wasn’t it good

The song “Wasn’t It Good” was performed by Tina Arena. She co-wrote this song with Robert Parde and Heather Field. It was released in the album “Don’t Ask” in the year 1994. The piece talks about a love story between two lovers.

This is a good material to be chosen with funeral poems during memorials for the death of a person whose wife or husband is still alive since the lyrics can bring back good memories. The first few lines of the song talk about losing courage because you have always imagined life together.

As the song goes on, the meaning of it brings the listeners back to the first few moments when the partners met. They look back at the time when they were separate beings. And after finding themselves in each other, they became one which is the main reason why an individual, in a way, loses himself when a partner has died.

At the end of the day, after the death of your loved one, you think back and you understand that he or she may not be present with you now but the good memories will always make things better.
