"Lucky Star" as written by George Tutuska, John Rzeznik and Robbie Takac....
If I could walk a straight mile
And could write it down in shorthand, I could show you
If you want me to
And if I had an hourglass
I'd save the grains of time I spent with you
That's what I'd do

But I remember
You always said it could be great
And I knew it could be

Well there's a way you look at things
That no one needs to know but you
And you'd shout it with me
Like every time the leaves would fall
You promised me that they'd be back again
And I believed in you

You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that I've gone too far

As bright as you are, don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are, don't get burned by your lucky star

Written down in hard bound books
The way things used to be, they ain't for me
I'd swear they're all for you
We said sugar, Gramps said shoot
Her momma said shit, I don't know what she'll do
As if it's up to you

But I remember
You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that I've gone too far

As bright as you are, don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are, don't get burned by your lucky star

Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you 'round
Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round, turn you 'round
They're gonna turn you around

    General Comment"And if I had an hourglass

    That's what I'd do.
    But I remember you always said it could be great.
    And I knew It could be.
    Well there's a way you look at things
    That no one needs to know but you.
    And you shared it with me. "

    those are arguably my favorite lines from any song, ever.

    General CommentYou're a smart person, but love can make you hostage, so just watch out, don't let the person you love fuck you up...because they are going to change everything.

    That's what this song is saying to me.

    General CommentEh, I used to love this song a lot... and considered it among my favorites by Goo, just 'cause of the lyrics. I've heard it, though, and,while I don't really like how it sounds terribly much, I will always like this song.

    General Commentgreat song, it's like the robbie's version of "cuz you're gone"

    it's obviously about a girl who the singer loved so much, not necesary in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, maybe just afriend; unfortunetely he realized of his feelings too late, so the only thing he can do is wishing his best to his beloved girl.
