The Lucky One

By Edmund Snyder on June 26, 2016 9:18 pm

--------------------------------------------------------
You knew that everyone in town would talk about you behind your back.
So most days you just stay inside working on your chocolate comfort heart attack.
The comfort wasn't fast enough so you went out and you bought a gun.
You made the only choice left--the choice to be the lucky one.


The lucky one will never sit and wait for love that will never come.
The lucky one will never never lie awake just wishing they were numb.
Some may fear the end will be an end to all the fun,
but deep down we all know when you go you are the lucky one.


Everyone loves to smile and laugh, you are the life of the party.
But something must be missing, you think, when you lie awake at half past three.
People think you live the dream when, in fact, your whole world has come undone.
So you slip that bag over your head and join the ranks of the lucky ones.


The lucky one will never sit and wait for love that will never come.
The lucky one will never never lie awake just wishing they were numb.
Some may fear the end will be an end to all the fun,
but deep down we all know when you go you are the lucky one.

Boy you sure have come a long way this year!  This might be your best vocal production to date.  Nice and clear, up front, some nice back ups.

I like the twist with the connotation of "lucky" in the lyrics.  Bravo!

Excellent lyrics: such ambition is commendable.

Great lyrics and a very nice vocal performance.  I dig the musical accompaniment as well.

Thanks you. I don't know why I didn't mention it in the submission, but I played every guitar part (including bass) on my Washburn acoustic--obviously with some effects.
