I Was So Lucky

Words & Music by Per Gessle

It’s no secret I’ve been waiting, but I didn’t expect this
Nothing will remain, nothing stays the same after you came
It’s no secret I’ve been starving, I never felt anything for years
I sat up all night, just to watch your smile when you’re sleeping

I was so lucky you came by, and turned a different corner
I could’ve been somewhere else, you could’ve passed by,
Could’ve passed by…

Come on and sail the sea with me,
Come on, let’s go around the world
Maybe find a flat, or a canyon house for the season

I was so lucky you came by, and turned a different corner
It could’ve been someone else you had in mind
I was so lucky you found me, my rags turned gold and silver
I could’ve been somewhere else, you could’ve passed by,
Could’ve passed by…

What would you make of this, my baby?
The sun through the trees, is there a better place to be?

I was so lucky you came by, and turned a different corner
It could have been someone else you had in mind, oh my
I was so lucky you picked me, my trash turned to silver
Yea, I could have been somewhere else
You could’ve passed by, could’be passed by
