10 Unforgettable Luke Bryan Moments
Luke Bryan's "Most People Are Good" Lyrics:
I believe kids oughta stay kids as long as they can / Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands / I believe we gotta forgive and make amends / 'Cause nobody gets a second chance to make new old friends / I believe in working hard for what you've got / Even if it don't add up to a hell of a lot.
I believe most people are good / And most mama's oughta qualify for sainthood / I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights / I believe you love who you love / Ain't nothing you should ever be ashamed of / I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks / I believe most people are good.
I believed them streets of gold are worth the work / But I still wanna go even if they were paved in dirt / I believe that youth is spent well on the young / 'Cause wisdom in your teens would be a lot less fun / I believe if you just go by the nightly news / Your faith in all mankind would be the first thing you lose.
I believe that days go slow and years go fast / And every breath's a gift, the first one to the last.
