the luckiest lyrics – ben folds

i don’t 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 every day

and i know
that i am
i am
i am
the luckiest

what if i’d been born 50 years before you
in a house on the street where you live?
maybe i’d be outside as you p*ssed on your bike
would i know?

and in a wide 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 there’s an old man who lived to his 90s
and one day p*ssed away in his sleep
and his wife, she stayed for a couple of days
and p*ssed away

i’m sorry, i know that’s
a strange way to tell you
that i know we belong

that i know
that i am
i am
i am
the luckiest
