Lucky Man

from What Kind of World by Joe Benoit

lyrics

Is it any wonder
That we’ve come so far?
Ours is one in a million
Lightning in a jar
Did I throw coins in a fountain?
Blow out a birthday cake?
I’m not really sure what worked
But you’re the best wish I could make

If I gotta be stuck with someone
I’m glad I’m stuck with you
If I had to face this shit alone
I don’t know what I would do

Chorus:
Thank you for tolerating some white noise in the night
Thank you for disagreeing when you know I’m not right
I’m not really one for gambling
That’s never been my plan
I’m not a high roller but I’m still a lucky man

Is it any wonder
We still laugh a lot?
Jokes no one else thinks are funny
Show us what we got
And when the day is over
I cap it all off with a smile
Before the world starts to haunt me
I can find peace for a while

If I gotta be stuck with someone
I’m glad I’m stuck with you
If I had to face this shit alone
I don’t know what I would do

Chorus

Now make believe
That our paths never crossed
You know that I’d be lost
Floating around
And waiting there for someone to guide my way
Did I know you would come?
Or was I just too dumb to see
That you’d be there to make it all ok?

Chorus
