  • Lyrics
  • Well, it was nearly all summer we sat on your roof
    Yeah, we smoked cigarettes and we stared at the moon
    And I'd show you stars you never could see
    Baby, it couldn't have been that easy to forget about me

    Baby, time meant nothing, anything seemed real
    Yeah, you could kiss like fire and you made me feel
    Like every word you said was meant to be
    No, it couldn't have been that easy to forget about me

    Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
    Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
    They get lucky sometimes

    Two cars parked on the overpass
    Rocks hit the water like broken glass
    I should have known right then it was too good to last
    God, it's such a drag when you're livin' in the past

    Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
    Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
    They get lucky sometimes

    Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
    Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
    Yeah, they get lucky sometimes

    Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
    Even the losers get lucky sometimes, oh, oh, oh

    Even the losers get lucky sometimesWriter/s: TOM PETTY
