Edwin McCain The Lucky One Lyrics

A serious car wreck
A bad fall from a cliff
And the raging blue river once took me
From a [Incomprehensible]
been held up in New Orleans
Strung out in Stockholm
I've slept on those cold, cold streets
in New York City alone

I can't explain why I'm still here today
I'm just thankful that I am
yeah and I have survived more than I should
I pushed it as far as I could, reaching for the sky

And I've walked on the edge more than most
Heaven knows I've cut it close
And I'm alive after all that I have done
It's you that makes me the lucky one
My heart has been broken
by love and by death
and I've been down on my bare knees
prayin' to Jesus for the devil's breath

and I've lost all my money
you know faith and beliefs
Still the world around me
showed nothing but sympathy
And every day that I wake up to see the sun
I thank God you still think I'm the one
yeah and I have survived more than I should
I pushed it as far as I could, reaching for the sky

And I've walked on the edge more than most
Heaven knows I've cut it close
I'm alive, after all that I have done
It's you that makes me the lucky one
You make me the lucky one

After all that I have done
It's you that makes me the lucky one
