"The Lucky One" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
A dream of togetherness
Turned into a brighter mess
A faint sign my spoken best
Now, now

Make way for the simple hours
No finding the time its ours
A fate or it's a desire
I know

So I was the lycky one
Reading letters, not writing them
Taking pictures of anyone
I know

So let the sunshine
So let the sunshine
So let the sunshine let it come
To show us that tomorrow is eventual
We know it when the day is done

    General CommentGOD. I LOVE this song. A dream of togetherness... The hopeful part, before a relationship that quickly ends. The sunshine, the realization that it can't work... This band is AMAZING.

    General CommentThe end of a relationship is always a pain (in the ass?). But it might be even more painful for one part of the split couple - the unlucky one. So, the one who did not take the initiave of putting an end to the relationship, the one who reads desperate letters of the others vain effort to get back together, this is a lucky person. All it takes to he or she is to let the sun shine its shine and wait for a better future with all the wounds healed.

    General CommentI feel like this song tells the story of two people that met and for some reason maybe it was during a vacation or weekend trip, that both people were attracted to each other--- however one of them fell more than the other, one of them leaves and the other one stays.

    and so the story begins
    "A dream of togetherness" - this person is already dreaming and imagining how their life could be, possibly the way they spent that weekend or holiday
    but it soon turned into a "brighter mess" because the other person gave up, or simply in his/her mind it was just a weekend thing, and nothing more, -or this perosn even though he/she feels something this perosn might be very realistic like they are too far away it wont work, or simply does not have the time to be in a long distance reationship

    "make way for the simple hours"
    he/she is just asking to make some time, like if he/she gave some time, the person would fall in love because the "spark" is there,
    but the other person wont find the time
    so the other person is just stuck with the idea of ... "is it fate or just a desire"
    like was this person really in love or was it just infatuation??

    however he/she is the lucky one because /she/he got to be with this person
    and maybe this other person wrote letters to him/her once but the perosn never did, /shehe never proclaimed his love in a matter of ..ill do anything for you even move to where you live, then "taking pictures of anyone, i know" could just mean all the pictures he/she took in his travel taking pictures of anyone he knows anything he sees

    and in the end just let the sunshine come , i mean sooner or later he/she has to be alright , and time will pass, and if it was just infatuation or love well let the sunshine go, is like let time pass, there is nothing more he/she can do.
