"Lucky Ones" as written by and Kevin Drew....
Well, every time they took me to the rise of your bed
You know what kind of doing at the top of your head
But all the little words that came down like a spider
Trickle through the morpheme try to make them cry

I'm in respect to suggest that we're through
You don't know I could live without you if you do
But tell me that the temperature's rising in your head
Tell me that the blood is not to be mislead

All of these little boys coming through the cracks
Trying to pick up these worms on the side
I could see the broken fences lying down in the yard
Green like your mom instead that never was retired

I know, I know, I know soon
All the things you thought about what you could do
When the clouds separated, in comes the sun
Heard it through a song that a girl once sung

She's the reason why I'm trying to make it alright
Trying to drive through, girl, wish it tonight
Rolling on the side with the moon in my hand
Trying to be a stereotype with a friend

But my love is gone and my God is low
That's why I'm doing all the things of the above
Don't you expect to make a phone call tonight
Treat me like a motherfucker who is right

Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one

Every time a creature comes into my past
I know you should snigger about things that we laughed
How I've got a cause that never met a man
Took a talk to him and tried to make him me friend

But you can see that I'm just coming out through the glass
Everyone speaks about something the past took
But I came beside with it, I could believe
Take me to your bed and show me some trees

But I can bet a fuck, will do the whole
Try to tell you that there's nowhere to roam
You're like a brother who thinks I won't care
I'm ready to tell you that you are not mislead

Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one

Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one
Ooh, I know we're gonna need a lucky one

    General CommentThe lyrics from the CD booklet:

    Well every time you took me to the lies of your bed
    you know I tried to do it every time you read
    but all of your words that came down like your spies
    trickled through the morphine and tried to make a crime
    I don't expect to suggest that we're through
    you know I can live without you if you do
    but tell me that the temperature is rising in your head
    tell me the blood is not to be misled

    All these little boys coming through the cracks
    trying to pick up the things, performed all the slack
    I've seen the broken fences right down to the line
    green like a mind that said it never was retired
    I know I know I know it's true
    all the things you thought about I want you to do
    and when the clouds separated in comes the sun
    hurry through the song that a girl once sung
    she's the reason why I'm trying to make it alright
    trying to drive through to Croatia tonight
    wanna lie beside her with the wind in my hand
    try to be the stereotype with a plan
    but my love of god and god is love
    that's why you ruined all the things of the above
    don't you expect to make a phone call tonight
    treat me like a motherfucker who is right

    Oh I know we're gonna be the lucky ones

    Every time the future comes into the past
    I know you should sing about things that will last I got a prize in the neverneverland, took a tattoo and tried to make a new friend
    you can see the ideas coming right through the glass
    everyone sings about something that past
    but I don't decide wether I can believe
    take me to your bed and show me some trees
    I can build a featherbird in your home
    try to tell you that there's plenty to roam
    you're like the blood that lives inside my bed
    I need to tell you that you are not misled
    oh I know we're gonna be the lucky ones

    General CommentSome small differences here, so why not?

    Well, every time you took me to the lies of your bed,
    You know I tried to do it every time that you read,

    Ooh, I know we're gonna be the lucky ones.

    General Commentand last line is "i don't need to tell you that you are not mislead."

    so many other lyrics are completely off but it's too late at night to decipher.

    General Commentthis is what i hear:

    well every time they took me to the rise of your bed
    you know i try to do it at the top of your head but
    all my little words that came down like the smiles
    trick them to the morphine
    try to make them cry but
    i don't expect to suggest that we're through
    you know i can live without you if you do
    but tell me that the temperature's rising in your head
    tell me the blood is not to be mislead

    all these little boys coming through the cracks
    trying to pick up with ease, falling from the stars
    i can see the broken fences lying down on the yard
    green like the mom that said 'i never was retired'

    i know, i know, i know it's true
    all the things you thought about what you could do
    when the clouds separate in comes the sun
    heard it through a song that a girl once sung
    she's the reason why i'm trying to make it all right
    trying to drive through the cold wishing tonight
    all my life was sad i've got the moon in my hands
    try to be a stereotype with a plan but

    mom is the god and my god is love
    that's why i do it all the things to be above (?)
    don't you expect to make a phone call tonight
    treat me like a motherfucker who is right

    ooh and i know we're gonna need a lucky one

    everytime the future comes into my past
    i know you should sleep about things that won't last
    i have got a cause and never (?)
    took a tatoo and try to make a new friend but
    you can see the ivy coming up in the glass
    everyone speaks about something that passed but
    i don't which side that i can believe in
    take me to your bed and show me some treason

    i can pay the phone bills you will hold
    try to fill you in where there is no one alone
    you're the one i got that tried to make a friend

    i'll do the rest later g2g

    General Commentthis is the rest:

    i meant to tell you that you are not mislead

    ooh and i know we're gonna be the lucky ones

    that's just what i heard but mnlwnd and clockwrist could be right too, probably some combination of the different things everyone heard. it's pretty impossible to guess at the meaning because these lyrics could be interpreted in a lot of ways but maybe something about salvation, not necessarily in a religious way

    General Commentat the part...

    "she's the reason why i'm trying to make it alright
    trying to drive through girl, wish it tonight"

    I'm pretty sure he's saying "she's the reason why i'm trying to make it alright, trying to drive through to Croatia tonight"

    Croatia is a place in Europe and it's pronounced "Kroh-ey-shuh"...so it makes sense.
