The first time in your life
On the other side of a blue light special
You searched the aisles for a sign
The bargain of your life to buy the impossible

You reached for the box of faith and everything around it
Way up high, on the shelf
It was there all the time
In the corner of your mind
You needed a reason to find it

There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time, he just bought the future
There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time
Hey lucky man, where'd you buy the time

The light they sent to find you falls behind
Never leaving your side
Reminded by the fight
Unexpected prize, the greatest gift is another day

There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time, he just bought the future
There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time
Hey lucky man, where'd you buy the time

We all take life for granted
A shame, counting on second chances
Sometimes we get, sometimes we don't
Unless we pray

There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time, he just bought the future
There goes the luckiest man alive
He just bought more time
Hey lucky man, where'd you buy the time
Luckiest man alive
