"Lady Luck" as written by and Karina Denike Elyse Rogers....
When the waves come crashing down on heaven (she will be there)
When the skies sends thunder through the horizon and the rain keeps falling
Do you believe in truth or in fantasy? (said she would be there)
Don't forget he risked it all for one last chance at going somewhere

On his back he lies awake and he's down again (is it all over?)
Looking up the one he trusts is beautiful bu nowhere to be found
Have you seen his lady called Lady Luck? (said she would be here)
Snake eyes, smile that's devilish
Calling out he sees her then she fades

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?

There was a time when all his dreams were in his hands (now he's spinning)
Lucky charms and one-eyed jacks won't bring it back
The writing's on the wall
And the day when he believed in everything (now it's crumbled)
All the cracks he's staring at belonged to him
But a long time ago

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?

And he seems to remember when he was stronger
The grass was greener, the air was clearer
The sun shone brighter, he wasn't frightened
Everything counted, nothing mattered
Was she a vision that he created?
Held onto, but now she's gone

When the minutes drag like all eternity (who will be there?)
When the black and white pictures fade to a dirty brown
And curl at the edges
Does he believe in fate or reality? (is there a distinction?)
Now his world is crashing down on heaven an yes she is gone

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?

    General CommentI've heard this described as a love song (taking a risk and not having it pay off) but sounds much more like a straight forward gambling addiction message. Someone gets into it thinking they're going to get rich, they have a fool proof system to beat the house, they have luck on their side, etc. Eventually his luck runs out and he loses everything.

    Probably my favourite DHC song. Brilliantly written lyrics, Elyse and Karina's trademark dueling vocals, and fantastically composed music. Fast paced and ska-infused, which is what they do best.
