"The Lucky Ones" as written by David Ryan Harris and Brendan James....
On the edge of a moment,
In the land that we love,
In the time that our best has to be good enough,
Like all those before us, we start out alone,
We race from our schoolyards, into the unknown
City lights, as far as the eye can see,
You and I, we will live differently

Well my hearts in my hands,
Like loaded guns,
We're taking a chance,
We're the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Searching for love,
Counting steps as we go,
Our parents they taught us there's no way to know,
I still hear their voices in the back of my head,
Saying, You'll do better than we ever did
City lights, as far as the eye can see,
You and I, we'll do it differently

Well my hearts in my hands,
Like loaded guns,
We're taking a chance,
We're the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
(We're gonna be fine)
Oh oh oh oh oh

City lights,
Stretching from sea to sea,
You and I,
It was meant to be,
Meant to be
Yeah

Well our hearts in our hands,
Like loaded guns,
We're taking a chance,
We're the lucky ones,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine,
And we're gonna be fine yeah,
We're gonna be fine yeah yeah oh,
This moment is yours,
This moment is mine oh,
And we're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh
We're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh
We're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh
We're gonna be fine,
Oh oh oh oh oh

    My InterpretationThis song is about love starting between two people, obviously, and they lead different lives, hence "You and I, we'll do it differently", but they are still going to take a chance with love, letting their guards down and jumping into this relationship and making it work. They are "the lucky ones" who found each other because they feel they're soul mates.

    I love this part:

    "Searching for love,
    Counting steps as we go,
    Our parents they taught us there's no way to know.
    I still hear their voices in the back of my head,
    Saying, You'll do it better than we ever did."

    Meaning, there's really no way to know if a relationship is going to work out.
