Lucky Enough (RatDog)

Lyrics

(Lyrics by John Barlow)

The other night, my soul hit the pavement
And I looked up, and I didn't have eyes
To see the joy, the beauty, and the tenderness
Reasons why a man's alive

Sometimes a darkness falls upon the spirit
And it gets dark like there ain't never been light
Maybe angels sing, but you don't want to hear it
That inner flame ain't burning so bright

And you'll find no saints here
Going gets this rough
But you may find grace
If you're lucky enough

Every love has a hole in the middle
Where the wickedness always survives
Eats at your soul, well, maybe just a little
And then it gets as big as the night

It doesn't matter how much you show her
Sure don't matter what she's trying to show you
When you can't feel it, love seems to scatter
Cause precious little gonna see you through

And we're going on faith here
And all of that kind of stuff
And even grace
If we're lucky enough

There's a line you can hold
Through the separateness and sin
Open up your soul
Let the sky fall in

The deepest journeys pass through the wilderness
The desert where the burning question resides
To taste the magic, you must first suck the emptiness
From a cup that is always dry

Inside the silence and total aridity
Where the horizon is a perfect line
Lies a drought that precedes the humidity
Of simple grace that pours like wine

And you'll find no saints here
None of that kind of stuff
And you may find grace
If you're lucky enough
Lucky enough...

Well you may find grace
If you're lucky, lucky enough...

Well you may find grace
