Jason Mraz – Lucky lyrics

Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you

Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet

You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

    I am deeply inlove with my bestfriend for more than 3 years. It is incomparable with anything else in this world. I'm willing to be her bestfriend forever. I long for more but if this longing would bring me nothing but her everlasting absence I'd rather die without her knowledge of my true feelings. Her presence is enough to sustain my very existence. Shes's my only hope for survival. Without her life is going to be meaningless. I just hope someday she'd realize how hard it is for me to contain my feelings from my aching heart which is bursting to be expressed. I'll carry on as long as I know that she and will always be around. I would be willing enough to give myself up for immortality just to watch her sleeping every night. I love her unconditionally. I love her for no reason and I think that's reason enough.

    I have a guy friend, he's really cute. When my friend and I are still new to the team, he was the first one to help and welcome us, we became good friends eventually, we go out a lot, dine a lot. We used to be teased by our teammates which made us uneasy and we tried to avoid each other. But later on, they grew tired, and we got close again. Even closer. Exchanging ideas, things that interest us both, communicating. We've come almost like bestfriends. I don't know how to say it but, he made me love him more because we're just friends. I feel more secured in our relationship, I know we'll stay together than we'll ever be if we had become lovers :)

    Finding the Love that completes you takes time. Specific time. And in time, that Love that completes you becomes your best friend, in a way that they nor anyone could have ever been before.
    This song relates those two such Lovers across not only time, but for now also a distance that they endure. It is a completely different enchantment to a Love that only shares touch on rare, intermittent occasions. It is about the joy and the exclusiveness that they share, something that is only them and otherwise shuts out the entire world.
    This is a true love that is happy to wait, because it is simply so happy to be complete.

    My husband and I met in China, when I was there for college. I was from Taiwan, and he's from the States. We started out as friends but we had strong feelings for each other even thought we had only known each other for a week, he left then cause he was there with a school trip. After months of communication online, he went back to China to learn Chinese and Sculpture, it didn't really work out for his dream of learning art there, but the 2 months he was there made our love came true. He is my best friend and my most romantic lover. We are most happily married even though it has been about 3 years since we fell for each other. We have a sweetest and cutest daughter in the world, and a loving family. Now we are apart again, he's in the Navy training school. There has been a lot separation in our relationship (out of environment), but it never weaken our love but made it even stronger. This morning I saw the music video on vh1, it really touched my heart, cause it is exactly how I feel about us. :)

    This song is sooo cute! My bestfriend (well, not actually my bestfriend but my very, very, close friend) asked me what would I say if a bestfriend or a close friend of mine confess his love for me. And then I explained my reaction. And I think he's on the verge of confessin' to me but idk why he didn't. But he gave a hint and said I'm inlove with your voice. Then I was like. Hmm. Lucky is my voice! Haaha. Then he said wish you were your voice and I didn't respond to it I just laughed. And he seemed pretty serious when he said it. I wish he confess soon.
