"Lucky" as written by Martin Max, Alexander Erik Kronlund and Rami Yacoub....
This is a story about a girl named Lucky

Early morning, she wakes up
Knock, knock, knock on the door
It's time for make-up, perfect smile
It's you they're all waiting for
They go
Isn't she lovely, this Hollywood girl?
And they say

She's so lucky, she's a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there's nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night?

Lost in an image, in a dream
But there's no one there to wake her up
And the world is spinning, and she keeps on winning
But tell me what happens when it stops?
They go
Isn't she lovely, this Hollywood girl?
And they say

She's so lucky, she's a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there's nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night?

Best actress, and the winner is Lucky
I'm Roger Johnson for Pop News standing outside the arena waiting for Lucky
Oh my god here she comes

Isn't she lovely, this Hollywood girl?
She is so lucky, but why does she cry?
If there is nothing missing in her life
Why do tears come at night?

And they say she's so lucky, she's a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there's nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night?

She's so lucky
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there's nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night?

    General CommentI really love the lyrics to this song. I can relate to it. Not that i am a "hollywood girl", but i do find myself feeling trapped under one image, and that what i do has to remain perfect, when infact, i can look into a mirror and see hundreds and hundreds of flaws... But as the song says "It's time for makeup, perfect smile, its you there all waiting for".
    but how i REALLY feel?- "If there's nothing missing in my life, then why do these tears come at night?"
    Sorry for wasting any of your time.

    General Commenti never noticed the actual meaning of this song until i watched "britney spears: for the record". then i realized that she's been "trapped" in that world for more than 10 years now. that sucks..not being able to step out of your house without security and psychos following you. always having to smile and having criticised everything you do.

    General CommentThe song describes that fame is very depressingly lonely and not all that its cracked up to be as people say. As she's under the pressure of the media, she secretly cries and puts on a fake smile for the crowd.

    General Commenti agree with crzyjen319. there's so many people who say they hate britney spears, blah blah blah. seriously, you don't know her. okay, she went through some things in the past few years, but do you know what she was thinking? what would you do if you had paparazzi trailing at your heels every second of the day, trying to catch you at your worst, most humiliating moment?

    My OpinionI love this song so much. I think a lot of people can relate to it. I feel really bad for Britney. People judge her so harshly. I've always really loved her. I know she's made some mistakes, but I think she has a good heart. I think when she started doing drugs and being irresponible she was just really confused and so she acted out. I mean, can you blame her? She has been under a microscope most of her life. You really can't expect her to be perfect. I love Britney Spears and I'm sure I always will.

    Song MeaningI think all of yall are dissing on britney and the fact that she doesnt write the songs, instead of explaining the meaning behind the words. Yes, its true she doesnt write her own songs, but she does in fact develop the ideas with her writers ( sometimes.) Now is it possible that this song was one of them? Maybe. I think the realness of the song and the true meaning is to show that even though everyone thinks a persons life is perfect, famous or not, everyone has problems. This girl "Lucky" or "britney" puts a smile on her face and pretends that everything is okay, when in fact her world is falling apart. People need to relax and for once understand not everyone is perfect, regardless of what people say or think about them.
