Luckiest Of All

(Dave Ellis)
I may not win the lottery, I may never get a yacht
But I’ll keep my dignity and I’ll give you all I got
I can’t make another spreadsheet, I can’t sell these magazines
I’m not using my degree, and every boss I’ve had is mean

But every night I lie down next to you
And it’s all possible, there’s no more excuses

I’m lucky you met me, lucky you kept me
You love me when I fall, I’m the luckiest of all

I’ve grown to hate my resume, everything except my name
I have so much more to offer you, I can elevate my game
I mean, look at all these jobs, they don’t describe me at all
I answer twenty classifieds but I hope nobody calls

And every night I say it all to you
We know it’s possible, there’s no more excuses

I’m lucky you met me, I’m lucky you kept me
You love me when I fall, I’m the luckiest of all

My single biggest fear is working here in thirty years
I won’t get rich and famous stuck inside this fake career
We can’t all quit today, well maybe we should
It would be a better city if we all felt good
Yes I’ve been depressed, it’s worse than it seems
Thank you for believing I can reach my dreams
Our apartment is small, I know, but we make room for two
It feels like a castle cause I’m sharing it with you

And so tonight I come running home to you
I don’t take you for granted, baby, everything is new

I’m lucky you met me, I’m lucky you kept me
You love me when I fall, I’m the luckiest of all
