I guess I'm fortunate
For you to be on my mind

I guess I'm fortunate
For you to be so kind

but every time I feel that way
I laugh out loud uneasily
We tremble in quiet dismay
then we dance to the tempo that pleases me

Chorus:
I tapped out time on a bottle of rhyme
I watched you side-step across the thin-laced line
Both foot for foot, both fake with the feel
Two forgotten myths, both Achilles heels
So how can I say
So how can I ever run away

I guess I'm fortunate
That you're still by my side
I guess I'm fortunate
That we have nothing more to hide

But everytime you see me smile
You think I'm paying you a lip service
that expression only lasts for a while
So we sing in the keys that suit me best

Chorus

I guess I'm fortunate
That we know what we now know
I guess I'm fortunate
That we know how this old song goes

Chorus

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs to hear Adam and Eric ad-lib. In one version, they've just been heckled, so Adam dedicates the first verse of the song to it, ending with "that guy paid seven dollars to tell me I suck" in lieu of "then we dance to the tempo that pleases me".

    I think it's a sweet love song with uncertainty. Sure, they're comfortable and everything feels right, but there are moments in which it falters. In the end, it's just nice that the relationship has persevered and that there still is doubt to make it interesting.
