"Charmed Life" as written by and Neil Hannon....
When I hold you in my arms
And look back on my charmed life, my charmed life,
I hope, I hope if nothing more
That one day you'll call your life a charmed life.

Well I've never really worried that much
About making lots of money and such
And I always seem to land upon my feet.
And though there's been some difficult times
The good times were never far behind.
I've snatched all of my victories from the jaws of defeat.

When I hold you in my arms
And look back on my charmed life, my charmed life,
I hope, baby I hope if nothing more
That one day you'll call your life a charmed life.

Well the course of true love never ran smooth.
They broke my heart and I broke theirs too,
And breaking up is so very hard to do.
But I knew I'd find the one,
And sure enough she came along,
And not long after that along came you.

Well sometimes this life is like being afloat
On a raging sea in a little row-boat,
Just trying not to be washed overboard.
But if you take your chances and you ride your luck,
And you never, never, never, never, never give up
Those waves will see you safely to a friendly shore.

When I hold you in my arms
I know that this is a charmed life.
A charmed life.

    General CommentLove this song - especially the last big verse ("Well sometimes life is like being afloat...")

    Ah that its about his daughter makes the "and not long after that came you" line make more sense. I thought it was kind of a humorous thing, but that explains it better :-)
