lucky - lyrics by hem

there's a man in a cutaway
buying drinks for the room
all the cheer raining down on the day
comes to nothing and leaves by the broom

on the streets named for presidents
where the kingfishers blew
all the cornflowers sewn in the fence
keep the memory from tearing in two

but if i should lose
i'll wake up feeling lucky
if i should take a fall
or throw it all away
i wouldn't mind lying beside you
the rest of my days

the storms came down out of mackinaw
as the weigh stations closed
there was a terrible darkness i saw
pulling up on the side of the road

but if i should lose
i'll wake up feeling lucky
if i should take a fall
or throw it all away
i wouldn't mind lying beside you
the rest of my days

so i'll drink to the wealthy man
and i'll pray for the poor
and i'll hold onto you while i can
in the darkness just to be sure

that if i should lose
i'll wake up feeling lucky
if i should take a fall
or throw it all away
i wouldn't mind lying beside you
the rest of my days

Hello!

I've been sitting here reading your blog for a while. Quite a while.

I feel like I know you, or at least that I want to read more here, or I can relate, or maybe you're just really writing it so well that I feel a connection to what you're saying, or I don't know.

I went on a period of blog slackness and have been getting back into it lately, and linking up to people and really reading people's blogs. I remember linking up to you just a short time ago.

I don't know, your writing is so honest and clear, I just wanted to say something about all this - this all sounds weird, doesn't it? I just feel such an obligation to match your honesty - to say somethin in here.
