The Lucky One lyrics

Armistice Day

 

Okay, okay

Battlefield is empty

All the crows have flown away

Bloodshed, you fled

Leaving me alone here, burying the dead

And I cannot run away this time

I cannot run away

Okay

Allright, allright

Armistice is signed now

No one left to fight

But ghosts, just ghosts

It's the ones that whisper in my ear

That bother me the most

But I will not listen to them now

I will not let them bite

Allright

Who won this war?

Who remembers what the fighting was for?

All the generals all alone

All the soldiers trying to find their way back home

Oohwee I give

Time to start all over

Learn to live and let live

Oohwee, resigned

Lawyers have been paid

All the papers have been signed

And the judgement came down yesterday 

It tells me I am free

 Oohwee

No Man's Wife

 

I never will marry I'll be No Man's Wife

I intend to stay single all the days of my life

That was a song that I sang to the world

What did I know I was only a girl

I was a girl who was bitter and raw

I didn't know better I just knew what I saw

So I did tarry so reckless and wild

Shameful sister, terrible child

I could not stay in my unhappy home

Could not be bound so I set off to roam

There was a boy who would give me the world

But what did I know I was only a girl

I set off in the darkness to make my escape 

Thinking I was so clever and strong

I thought I was free that was my first mistake

I was bound by my fears all along

I kept walking into traps I kept setting off snares

I drank the poison and told myself I didn't care

And I landed in a cage and I said it wasn't fair

But I made myself terribly comfortable there

Now I have been freed from my captivity

Thirty long years now the joke was on me

Playing a part, I was buried alive

But deep in my heart the young girl survived

Clawing my way up and out of the dirt

It's time for the meek to inherit the earth

I never will marry I'll be No Man's Wife

Not to Care

 

Once I had a home, a castle

Once I had a throne, a chair

Overnight they turned into ashes

And I'm trying hard not to care

Once I had a friend whose heartbeat

Disappeared into thin air

First a solemn oath of loyalty

Then a game of deceit

And I'm trying very hard not to care

Once there was an island, a beautiful island

Sunkissed and swept by the sea

Then to my door he came promising more

The mermaid would become royalty

Once I had a king, a husband

And a friend with long yellow hair

When I turned around

She was wearing my crown

And I'm trying hard not to care

Oh the island, the beautiful island

Windswept and kissed by the sea

I'm going home now, all alone now

Home to the mystery

If I had a new companion

With a heart so true and rare

I would give my all just to let met heart fall

But I'm trying very hard not to care

The Lucky One

 

I'm The Lucky One, I'm The Lucky One

Yes I am the Lucky One

I'm The Lucky One, I'm The Lucky One

Oh, I am the Lucky One

Everything was wrong, everyone was cruel

Life was a mistake, I was such a fool

Put the shovel down, stop digging that hole

Climb up to the top, reach into your soul

Find out what you're made of

There's nothing here but time and love

What was I afraid of?

I'm the Lucky One 

I'm The Lucky One, I'm The Lucky One

Yes I am the Lucky One

I'm The Lucky One, I'm The Lucky One

OhI am the Lucky One

Started to believe that magic could be true

Everything the same but my point of view

Birds began to sing, clouds began to clear

I began to see, I began to hear

What was I afraid of?

There's nothing here but time and love

Tell me what you're made of

I am the Lucky One

Working in the garden

Planting seeds and having fun

All my weeds are wildflowers 

And we have just begun

I am the Lucky One...

 

 

Mermaid

 

Mermaid sitting on a rock

Making up her simple songs for nobody

Girl just talks and talks

Chatters to the gulls then dives down deep deep deep

With the turtles and whales

Wags her beautiful mermaid tale

Mermaid's got a reputation

With the sailors who pass by

They don't know the situation

They don't know why this mermaid cries

They've never looked into that deep blue mermaid eye

They're just scared of getting caught

in all that mermaid hair

All the rocks and reef around that mermaid stare

So they tie themselves to their easy chair

And listen to her sing

Mermaid sitting on the shelf

Throwing rocks and talking to herself

She's got nobody to sing to

Just this old pile of rocks to cling to 

She's as bored as she can be

Sends her beautiful mermaid voice out on the sea

Mermaid's tired of the stories

She don't understand

Odysseus and all his glory

Calling her a siren calling her a danger to the man

No that's not what she had planned

Is she devious, evil and mean?

Sweet and innocent or somewhere in between?

Does she understand the signals that she sends

When she sings?

Mermaid doesn't see the bodies

Floating like flotsam around her home

Girl just wants to party

Wonders why she always ends up alone

Singing why am I always alone?

Not Yet a Love Song

This is not yet a love song

Just the expression of a slight possiblity

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I thought

There was a moment when you might have connected with me

I don't know you from Adam, don't know

I just like your vibe

Something too deep to fathom right there, plain site

Hidden in your eyes

This is not yet a love song

Just something I feel like singing today

Got a whiff of something oh so strong

I couldn't help myself, I just had to say hey hey

Hey hey hey--Can you come out to play?

I am not writing a love song, oh no no

It's just a daydream I am sending out on the wind

Might forget it before too long, maybe so

Unless you answer, then let the games begin

I know you're busy, I know you're a man

Who's got places to go, oh yes I understand

You've got planes to catch, you've got people to see

You got a life to live, but do you realize you've also got me?

Yeh, you got me

So maybe this is a love song, well OK

Imagination has got the best of me

I haven't felt this good in so long

I don't care what you see

I'll be your lover, your mother, your sister, your friend

I'll be your Crazy Aunt Cici that you knew back when

I'll be an ally of your heart, I'll be your biggest fan

I'll be a friend of your soul right until the end

Enjoy the Ride

The ghost of my dreams came to me last night

He was laden with laughter, so full of delight

He told me a secret and he picked up my phone

He punched in his number and then 

He left me alone

I'd seen him before, sure I knew his name

He rolls in like thunder it's never the same

The air goes all thick with a mystical light

He flashes and crackles and then

He just fades out of sight

But I know the truth, I'm surrounded by love

It's here all around me, below and above

And each time I check it is right here inside

Saying patience dear, patience dear

I'm right here---Enjoy the Ride

The ghost of my dreams comes into my head

I stare at the phone as I'm lying in bed

Cuz I sent him a message I sent up a flare

But the screen is still empty

Just seems like there's nobody there

But I know the truth, I'm surrounded by love

It's here all around me, below and above

And last time I looked, it was right here inside

Saying patience dear, patience dear

I'm right here, nothing to fear

Enjoy the Ride with your friends

Enjoy the Ride all alone

Enjoy the Ride til it ends

And know you're right where you belong

The ghost of my dreams he may never be mine

He may not return to this place and time

But he left me a gift and I share it with you

This song I am singing

And that much is true

Cuz I know the secret, I'm living in love

It's here all around me, below and above

And each time I check, it is right here inside

Saying patience dear, patience dear

I'm right here

Enjoy the Ride

Exist

I love it that you exist

I'm crazy for what you do

I won't beg and I won't insist

I'll just love you

The air goes still

My heart goes boom

It's such a thrill when you're in the room

I'm eight miles high

I'm oceans deep

You woke me up and I can't get back to sleep

I love it that you're out there

Somewhere in the world

It's crazy but I don't care

I'm your girl

I'm eight miles high

I'm oceans deep

You woke me up and I can't get back to sleep

The air goes still

My heart goes boom

It's such a thrill when you're in the room

I love it that you exist

Out there doing what you do 

I won't beg and I won't insist

I'll just love you

I won't beg and I won't insist

I'll just love, love you

 

To Birth the Dancing Star

 

Years from now, your grandchildren's children

If there are still children living on earth

They're gonna want to know what you were doing 

While the planet was burning

What was it worth?

Years from now, if we survive this

Unlike the hundred other species

That are dying off every day

They're going to want to know what you were thinking

What were you doing?  What part did you play?

What were you doing while the planet was burning?

What were you doing?  What part did you play?

Here and now, my four inner horsemen

Are trying to trample my heart to the ground

Dread, despair, my secret death wish, dissociation

In the face of the chaos, they're trying to take me down

But here and now I'm gonna learn to be fearless

I'm going to shed my tears and stand back up and sing

Because here and now I've got my reasons

My grandchildren's children are worth everything

There's a fire burning in my heart

There's a passion that is only starting to grow

It's going to take more than we know we are

To give birth to this dancing star

Years from now our grandchildren's children

Might want to have children of their own

But only if we know how we are connected

The planet is sacred, and she's everyone's home

What are we doing? The planet is burning 

What are we doing? What part do we play?

What are we doing?  It's transcendence or ruin

What are we doing today?

This is a Test

 

It was just another day, just another dollar

I was taking it for granted, taking life by the collar

When the phone rings blows it all to smithereens

Cuz I got some news brought me to my knees

I was down there trying to remember how to breathe

When a still small voice spoke up and said to me

This is a test, this is a test

This is only a test

Do not touch the numbers on your dial

This is only a test, it is all for the best

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved, 

You are so very loved my child

So I went along my way I got myself calmed down

I am learning how to stay, keep my feet on the ground

Believe in love above all other things

Because that is what I need when I need relief

I say love is in charge that is my belief

And it makes me strong and it makes me want to sing

This is a test, this is a test

This is only a test

Do not touch the numbers on your dial

This is only a test, it is all for the best

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved

You are so very loved my child

 

Shift your focus from the negativities

Find that light that keeps you warm

There are lessons in all life's calamities

Peace inside the eye of every storm

 

This is a test, this is a test

This is only a test

Do not touch the numbers on your dial

This is only a test, it is all for the best

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved my child

You are safe and loved

You are so very loved my child

 

 

Together Again

 

I want to sing you back to life

I want to bring you holy medicine

Like Osiris and his wife

I want to travel the world

Find your scattered parts

Bind your shattered heart 

And sew you back Together Again

Together Again

I want to be Together Again

I want to show you how I feel

I want to know you as more than a friend

I want to tell you something real

And like Sheherezade, instead of taking flight

I'll take a thousand nights

To put us back Together Again

Oh let the rain fall down now

Listen, I think I hear the rain fall down now

Down on our thirsty hearts

Let's do our part and grow

I want to read you the whole book

I want to feed you sacred storylines

Like Inanna on her hook

You take one breath in then you let it go

Then you do it again and you take it slow

You take another breath, reaching for the sun

No such thing as death when you know the One

Baby let it out, baby let it in

We can make it through this night

Together Again

Vampire

 

I let you in, I let you in

With your blood-stained face & your great big toothy grin

You had a big black cape and laser eyes

And everything about you made me want to compromise

Let you under my skin

I let you in

 

I let you stay, I let you stay

Even when I knew that this was never gonna be OK

When you disappeared inside that mirror

And I learned to live inside that fear

I remember the day

I let you stay

How many times you got to see that movie?

How many times do you have to be told?

If you cannot face the sun

You grow bitter, bent and cold

This is not the song of the unrequited

If he got in, he was invited

I've got to go, I've got to go

Well it took some time but I think I finally know

I have to face that I had my part 

As I drive this stake into your heart

Even though I loved you so

I've got to go

Free

 

This pain is so familiar it's hard to let it go

It's mommy daddy baby, it's everything I know

This longing has beguiled me, it's lodged inside my heart

Without it who would I be? Wouldn't I just fall apart?

Into a million pieces, into the hurricane

The fear that it unleashes to release this kind of pain

Shatters all the armor that's wrapped around my heart

Without it where would I be?  Where would I even start?

Are you going to be free

Or go on kneeling at the feet of the master?

Dark angel of pain, lord of impending disaster

It all went down so long ago

He was the one who ran the show

You were so young you couldn't know 

But now you do, now you see

You could be Free

 

Look behind the curtain you'll see nothing there is real

Imaginary pleasures that you could never feel

So you settled for the anger, you settled for the ache

But you were always hungry so you took what you could take

 

Are you going to be free

Or go on kneeling at the feet of the master?

Dark angel of pain, lord of impending disaster

It all went down so long ago

He was the one who ran the show

You were so young you couldn't know 

But now you do, now you see

You could be Free

This pain is so familiar it was everything I knew

And so I light a candle, and so I let it through

This pain is so familiar, but I want mystery

And so I light a candle

And so I set it free
