"Feeling Lucky" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
There's a chance one of us will give in soon.
I could ask, but what's an answer gonna prove?
I tried to get mad, but the fever drops,
My heart can't break 'cause the beating stops.
Yeah, suck that lucky feeling right outta me.

Wanna laugh? Take a look around the room.
It's a dance, tired steps in brand new shoes.
I can only take a guess what the morning brings,
If it feels too good, then it probably is.
Yeah, suck that lucky feeling right outta me.

I follow your sign, wherever it leads, I go.
But you turned your back so easily,
It tells me everything I need. Yeah!

Waiting for the line to move a foot, yeah,
Wasting my life on nothing good.
Yeah, suck that lucky feeling right outta me.

I should act, tie ya down or cut you loose
It's a trap, any direction I move.
When I try to sing along, the needle skips.
I huff and then I puff, but the house is bricks.

Yeah, suck that lucky feeling right outta me,
Yeah, you sucked that lucky feeling right outta me.
Yeah, you sucked that lucky feeling right outta me. Yeah!

    General Commentthis song didnt really jump on at me when i initially listened to the album.

    but the lyrics are gold.

    i think the song is about a relationship, where one person is clearly being walked all over, but feel really helpless about it all. the person with the upper hand is sucking all the happiness and bliss that is the honeymoon-phase out of their relationship. but the other person cant do anything about it. they're trapped.

    i love this song.

    General Commenti think "Wanna wrath, take a look around the room" should be "wanna laugh? take a look around the room"

    General CommentCouple of corrections:

    'I should act, tie you down or cut you loose'

    The next line sounds like '...any jury should have moved' or something?

    And I'm pretty sure that it says 'but the house is bricks' after the needle line?

    General Comment"i try to sing along but the needle skips, i huff and i puff but your house is bricks"

    i'm pretty sure that's right and it makes sense too :)

    and i think it's "YOU suck that lucky feeling.."
    and "wanna laugh" (not wrath)
    -i think someone was in a hurry to get these up-

    "moment" instead of "morning" maybe..

    it could always be an earlier version..I'm seeing them in march :) x

    General CommentIt should be:

    "It's a trap any direction I move,
    Every time I sing along, the needle skips,
    I huff and I puff but the house is bricks."

    Can I just make a suggestion that people not post lyrics unless they have the liner notes? It would save a lot of time and editing anyway. The only reason I posted the ones for "Mathematics" is they didn't include the lyrics with the CD which is stupid IMO. Also, can I suggest you be allowed to edit your posts because the anger I expressed on here a few posts back was misdirected. Just my two cents.

    I don't understand how Jim could think he's wasting his life on nothing good when his music brings so much joy to people.
