DEAR EVAN HANSEN the Musical - Good For You Lyrics

“Good For You” is a song performed by Rachel Bay Jones (Heidi), Alana, Will Roland (Jared), Ben Platt (Evan), Mike Faist (Connor) from the Broadway musical DEAR EVAN HANSEN.

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: (spoken) Why did Connor kill himself?

EVAN: (spoken) Wait what?

ALANA: (spoken)
He was doing better
That's what he told you in every single email
and then a month later he kills himself?
How does that make sense?

EVAN: (spoken)
Why are you so obsessed with this?
You didn't even know him

ALANA: (spoken) Because it's important!

EVAN: (spoken)
Because he was your lab partner?
Or because, I don't know
Maybe because you want to add another extracurricular for your college application

ALANA: (spoken)
Because I know what it's like to feel invisible, just like Connor!
To feel invisible and alone and like nobody would even notice if you vanished into thin air
I bet you used to know what that felt like, too!

EVAN: (spoken)
We need more emails
Emails showing that he was getting worse
This isn't funny!

JARED: (spoken) Oh I think it's hilarious!
I think everyone would probably think it's hilarious

EVAN: (spoken) What is that supposed to mean?

JARED: (spoken) It means you should remember who your friends are

EVAN: (spoken) I thought the only reason you even talk to me is because of your car insurance?

JARED: (spoken) So?

EVAN: (spoken) So? Maybe the only reason you talk to me,
Jared, is because you don't have any other friends!

JARED: (spoken) I could tell everyone everything!

EVAN: (spoken) Great! Go ahead, do it!
Tell everyone how you helped write emails pretending to be a kid who killed himself.

JARED: (spoken) Fuck you, Evan! Asshole

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, ALANA & JARED:
I'll shut my mouth and I'll let you go
Is that good for you?
Would that be good for you you you?
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 and link
Tell me how could you change the story?
All the words that I can't take back
Like a train coming off the track
Cause the rails and my bones all crack
I've got to find a way to
Stop it, stop it! Just let me off!

ALANA, JARED, & HEIDI
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
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
