The Luckiest

Original Artist: Ben Folds

I donít get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

What if Iíd been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe Iíd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?

And in a white sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you

Next door thereís an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

Iím sorry, I know thatís a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest
