Dear Evan Hansen Wiki

"Good for You" is the fourth song in Act Two of Dear Evan Hansen.

Heidi feels as if she has been replaced after the Murphys offer to pay for Evan's college tuition. Alana, meanwhile, begins to grow suspicious over inconsistencies in the emails between Evan and Connor, and Jared becomes angry when he feels as if Evan is abusing their friendship for personal gain.

[HEIDI HANSEN]
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 BECK]
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 KLEINMAN]
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

[ALANA & JARED]
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?

[ALANA & HEIDI]
I'll just sit back while you run the show
Is that good for you?
Would that be good for you, you, you?

[ALANA, HEIDI & JARED][EVAN]
I'll shut my mouth and I'll letAll I need is some time to think
you goBut the boat is about to sink
Is that good for you?Can't erase what I wrote in ink?
Would that be good for you, you, you?Tell me how could I change the story?
I'll just sit back while you runAll the words that I can't take back
the showLike a train coming off the track
Is that good for you?'Cause the rails and the bolts all crack
Good for you?I've got to find a way to
Stop it, stop it! Just let me out!

[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
