"Believed You Were Lucky" as written by Aimee Mann and Jules Shear....
So I guess I'll give it up
Yeah I guess I will
What's the use in pushing
When it's all uphill

I can't be appointed
Keeper of the flame
Without two to carry
It won't burn the same - oh
It seems obvious to me
But then again
Could be
You just never felt that way

[Chorus:]
I wish you believed in life
Believed in fate
Believed you were lucky
And worth the wait
'Cause life could be lovely
Life could be so great

It gets so embarrassing
So I acquiesce
And I'll change my mind again
You change your address - oh
It seems logical to me
But then again be
Could be I was simply not that smart

[Chorus]

There must be some other door that they are saving
Behind which my happiness lies
I won't be wasting my words
To tell you hopes that I had
We can just leave it alone for now

I wish you: Believe in life
Believe in fate
Believe you are lucky
And worth the wait
'Cause life could be lovely
Life could be fucking great.

    General CommentI'm surprised that I'm the first person to make a comment on this song. This is my all-time favourite song. It reminds me of the period of my life where I was always,always trying to get the wrong girl - the more I wanted her, the more I was pushing uphill.
    If only I'd known in 1987 that you need patience in order to find the love of your life, then life would have been fucking great after all

    General CommentHave to agree this is a great song. I too think I've been going after the wrong women the past few years. To me, this song tells me to just let go and stop trying to force things to happen and just let the randomness of life take over and believe that maybe there is someone out there who feels the same way I do who I will be "worth the wait" for. Great song, lifts your spirit when you're otherwise down in the dumps.
