"Good Lord" is a song by Australian alternative rock band Birds of Tokyo. It was released on 26 February 2019.[1]

Band member Ian Kenny said the song is about the break up of his marriage. Kenny explained: "I know I'm not the first person to go through it, and unfortunately I won't be the last, but it still hurt like hell and you can hear that in this song".[2] He added: "It's the old story, You get married and you think you're gonna live happily ever after. But one day unexpectedly you see something that literally shatters your whole world. Then you have to spend years trying to put your head and heart back together."[3][4]
