Barry Manilow Fools Get Lucky Lyrics

Last updated: 06/14/2012 11:00:00 AM

When I see you lying there
Like a living answered prayer
There are no words
For what I feel for you
My life was once a high trapeze
You pulled me down
And gave me peace
That's something no one else
Could ever do
And on nights like tonight
It scares me recalling
How close I came to falling

But fools get lucky
Fortune must like me
When people ask where you came from
I tell them that
Fools get lucky
Destiny likes me

It must be one of nature's rules
Love like yours
Should save the fools like me
When I see the good times shine
On this wayward life of mine
I tell the world
It's all because of you


Like me
Like me

Hidden Treasure | Reviewer: Steven | 6/14/12

Not released as a single; Probably never played on the radio; I can't even find the sheet music for it. But this HAS to be one of Barry's most touching, poignant songs. As usual, the analogies and images in this song, combined with a deep, haunting accompaniment, take you far beyond simple words and music.

It is very personal song for me. I first heard it in college, and I KNEW it would be an important part of my life. I've bought six different copies of "If I Should Love Again" (Album, 8-track, cassette, and three CD's) over the years just so I could have access to this song. How fitting that I can now share this song with the most wonderful woman in the world; the one who "saved" THIS fool.

Thank you, Barry.
