Music Monday: Matt Wertz - "Last Good Girl in the World"

Have I talked about Matt Wertz lately?

Or more specifically his latest album, Heatwave?

It's fantastic.  I can't count how many times I've listened to it since he released it almost two months ago.

This tune is easily my favorite.


It has a very 80s feel (which I love) and the lyrics just make me smile.

They said a pretty face don't got nothin' inside, but she does
They told me girls like that won't be interested, but she was
They said good luck finding you a heart of gold, 
They don't make 'em like that anymore

And I almost gave up, gave in
Ooh baby, I'm so glad that I didn't
Now that I found her, I ain't ever gonna let her go
I think I got the last good girl in the world

Hey, yeah baby

She's my needle in a haystack, shining down in the rough
She's my five leaf clover 'cause four ain't lucky enough
Just when I thought He went and broke the mold,
God went and made one more

Oh, I almost gave up, gave in
Ooh baby, I'm so glad that I didn't
Now that I found her, I ain't ever gonna let her go
I think I got the last good girl in the world
Last good girl in the world

And I knew it was love when I heard her say, "I'm so glad that I found you"
Good things come to those who wait
It's true
It's true
Oh 

And I almost gave up, gave in
I'm glad I didn't, babe

Yes, I almost gave up, gave in
Ooh baby, I'm so glad that I didn't
Now that I found her, I ain't ever gonna let her go
I think I got the last good girl

And I almost gave up, gave in
Ooh baby, I'm so glad that I didn't
Now that I found her, I ain't ever gonna let her go
I think I got the last good girl in the world

Last good girl in the world
Yes, she's mine baby
Hey, yeah yeah

I like to think some guy will think this about me someday -- that he got "the last good girl in the world" and that he's so glad he kept looking for me.

Sigh.

If you liked that, be sure to check out the music video for "Get To You."  It's another favorite from the album, and, yeah, the 80s influence continues.  Love it.
