The Luckiest


Songwriter/Performer: Ben Folds
Category: Contemporary

Ben Folds included this song on his first solo album Rockin' the Suburbs after his band, Ben Folds Five, disbanded in 2000. He even performed most of the instruments on the album, so it was truly a solo effort.

It was written for the movie Loser (starring Jason Biggs, Mena Suvari & Greg Kinnear), but you won't hear it in the movie as the scene it went with was deleted.

LYRICS

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 everyday
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

What if I'd been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd 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 there's 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

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
