songtekst The Lucky One

Wonder if it ever crossed your mind. That what we had was really unbelievable. Unbeatable, a miracle. Why’d you have to go and mess it up. Why’d you have to make what was unbreakable. Shakable, unsaveable.

And now it’s too late to cross your fingers. I’m wide awake and not a dreamer. Hate it but it seems the dreams were never true. For a little while the fates were with us. Wonder why they had to turn against us. I could make a wish, but there is no use.

I can feel. Even though I’m numb. The change to come will hurt someone. I can see. This time it isn’t me. I might be the lucky one.

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me. Baby it’s plain that you don’t know me. When it comes to you I’m better off alone (better off alone). I don’t need a crystal ball to make me. Realise that if I stay you’ll break me. Every sign is saying I should be gone. I should be gone.

Thought I had a cloud over my head. It had to be my fault that it kept raining down. Until now I figured out. That if I had the nerve to say goodbye. I could look for clearer skies up over head. Weather says sun instead.

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me. Baby it’s plain that you don’t know me. When it comes to you I’m better off alone (better off alone). I don’t need a crystal ball to make me. Realise that if I stay you’ll break me. Every sign is saying I should be gone. I should be gone.

I can feel (even though I’m numb). The change to come will hurt someone. I can see (I can feel). This time it isn’t me. I might be the lucky one.

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me. Baby it’s plain that you don’t know me. When it comes to you I’m better off alone (better off alone). I don’t need a crystal ball to make me. Realise that if I stay you’ll break me. Every sign is saying I should be gone. I should be gone.
