lyrics

Lucky One

Into the fray
I’ve made my bed and I’ll stay
I put my faith in this fall
Cause I know I’m the lucky one

This will be mine
I’ll lay it all on the line
I will get my curtain call
The standing O to me will fall
Cause I know I’m

I know I’m the lucky one
Who wins it all when day is done
I know I’ve got it made
And all I have to do is wait
I know I’m the lucky one

I never asked
I did not want to be tasked
But I have been given the part
Of chosen one, of sacred heart
Of the port in his storm

I know I’m his guiding light
The northern star he loved at sight
And what it takes to follow me
Is what he’ll do eternally
Like the sun will rise the night will fall
If I can find the wherewithal

To hold on tight and don’t look down
Flying over deep water
If he lets me go then I will drown
there’s no doing over

It’s too late for thinking twice
The leap was faithed I’ve rolled the dice
It is never or now

I’ve shot the moon I’ve won the crown
I’m on the flight I won’t look down
Rome wasn’t burned in a day
No violins for me will play

I know I’m the lucky one
Who wins it all when day is done
I know I’ve got it made
And all I have to do is wait

For tears to dry
For hearts to heal
For worlds to turn
And close the deal
