The Luckiest...

I got two albums through the post today, one of which was 'Rocking The Suburbs' by Ben Folds. The album is awesome, and one of the songs is so gorgeous, I feel compelled to share it with you all. It's called 'The Luckiest', and I can't wait till I have someone I can sing it to...

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here
And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know
That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest
What if I'd been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?
And in a wide sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know
That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest
I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you
Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away
I'm sorry, I know thats a strange way to tell you that
I know we belong
That I know
That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest
Isn't that just beautiful? It makes me want to cry, and sigh, and fall in love, all at once. Out of nowhere, we have a brand new top contender for 'potential first dances at Claire's wedding', if and when the country mouse meets her match...

I adore this song. Have a brilliant evening / day / morning!

  3. How lovely Claire. Funny though because one of my friends played that song for me the other day and said that it was her husbands song to her. How romantic.

    I hope it not long before the Country Mouse finds another country mouse.

    Take care xx

  4. Wow that was beautiful, made me think too. If only we all could find our one true love, our soul mate, we would all feel complete...love is a powerful treasure.

    Thanks for reminding me =)

  6. Some songs have the quality to make us laugh, some to make us cry. I prefer the latter ones myself.

    Have you head Dishwalla's "Every little thing"? If you can get hold of it, listen! It's amazing

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
