lucky me lyrics – great big sea

he was born a sailor’s son
nothing came easy or free
he suffered the squalls all the rises and falls
and everything else in between

he says, “storms always fade after they’ve had their way
they’re never as bad as they seem”

as long as the rivers still run to the seas
hey lucky you, lucky me
hey lucky you, lucky me

who’d ever thought for a moment
she’d have to grow up so fast
the school beauty queen with a child at sixteen
swore that her fortunes had p*ssed

but blessings can hide in the strangest disguise
and i know that she would agree

as long as the rivers still run to the seas
hey lucky you, lucky me
hey lucky you, lucky me

hey look at me in the spotlight
ripped jeans and rock and roll hair
feelin’ so cool but i’d be such a fool
singin’ to no one out there

so hey take a bow every band needs a crowd
and i’ve got a song we can sing

as long as the rivers still run to the seas
hey lucky you, lucky me
hey lucky you, lucky me
hey lucky you, lucky me
