Lucky

Album: All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend (2016)
  • When... When I am down
    I lay my hands upon this ground
    For the thousandth time
    I call him in, his earth is mine

    Before I make the offering
    Remember all the faces that I've seen
    Now all the marks have settled on my skin
    From all the different places that I've been
    That I've been

    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive
    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive

    War inside my mind, behind my eyes, is coming down
    For the thousandth time, I feel too numb, to even mind

    Before I make the offering
    Remember all the faces that I've seen
    Now all the marks have settled on my skin
    From all the different places that I've been
    That I've been

    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive
    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive

    I... I don't know where I am, where I'll go
    Where to even begin when I know
    What lies behind makes no sense in my mind
    But I know that it's time to let go

    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive
    And I feel the light for the very first time
    Not anybody knows that I am lucky to be alive

    I'm lucky to be alive
    I'm lucky to be alive
