Great Big Sea
If you can listen to songs like Lucky Me, Let it Go, Love, and Something Beautiful and not feel happy with life--there is something severely wrong.
Look beyond the cut for my favourite bits of each song.
Who would have thought for a moment
She'd have to grow up so fast
The school beauty queen with a child at sixteen
Swore that her fortunes had passed
But blessings can hide in the strangest disguise
And I know she would agree
As long as the river still runs to the sea
Hey lucky you, lucky me.
Hey lucky you,
Let it go
There's no time for crying now
You've made your bed
but you don't think it's fit to lie in
You're wasted on the ground
when you know you should be flying
What are you waiting for?
How many more of our children have to fall
And just how high do we have to build these walls
In fighting there's no dignity
it's such a waste of time
Take my hand
I don't think god will mind
The years'll make us older
The winters make us colder
And there's one more thing I've come to know for sure
There's no bitterness that smoulders
No chip on any shoulder
That a random act of kindness can't cure.
