I am the luckiest.

by Ben Folds Five. {esther introduced me to this song}

i.am.the.luckiest.
i sometimes forget it.
i sent these lyrics to darling friend.
that last line max? it's for you.

"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 ... "


*i love love love that part. i have a thing for time travel.

I saw him do this song live--literally made me tear up... and I've never done that during a musical performance before.
