Lucky For Me

Updated on June 29, 2012

I'm feeling lucky
Nothing less nothing more

Why does God need religion?
Looking for new baby names
Living life without insurances
Pregnant but never to terms
Are we just little soccer moms
In prom dresses go skipping
And trolling down the streets
Why are we really here anyway?

Why is it agony before ecstasy?
Seeking ways to make money
On every Superbowl Sunday
With collages of butterfly wings
If you asked me to stay this way
Handfasting for thirteen moons
And then twenty-four hours more
What difference would it really have made?

I'm feeling lucky
Nothing less nothing more
Counting to thirteen silently here with me
And close your eyes while both of us listen
Maybe a djinni will come granting our wishes
What difference would it really make anyway?
It is nothing but what might have been

Why do we photograph weddings?
As if having so much more would
Solve all our problems by leaning
How to cheat when we solve them
Playing time in a bottle and saving
The memories in fuzzy white albums
With matching kamasutra and bibles
Why do we need this all to be in love?

Why do they teach us philosophy?
Everyone knows that Socrates
Got the death penalty for teaching
The kids that the world was ending
If you asked me to stay this way
Handfasting for thirteen moons
And then twenty-four hours more
What difference would it really have made?

I'm feeling lucky
Nothing less nothing more
Hush now my darling come here with me
And count to thirteen while both of us listen
Maybe fairies are coming to fulfill our wishes
What difference would it really make anyway?
It was nothing but what might have been

Nothing less nothing more it was just lucky
What difference could it really have made?
