"Lucky" as written by Jonas Von Der Burg, Anoo Finn Ananda Bhagavan and Niclas Von Der Burg....
Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    My InterpretationI use to listen to this song when my husband was deployed. Just listen to the song or read the lyrics and you'll understand why I feel like this song was meant for a deployment. It's absolutely beautiful!

    "Do you hear me,
    I'm talking to you
    Across the water across the deep blue ocean
    Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying"

    Soldiers can't always call home when they are deployed. So every call you get from your loved one is absolutely amazing! I use to get messages from my husband that would make my day. I know he tried his hardest to let me know he was okay every day. But it's not possible for that to happen every day.

    "Boy I hear you in my dreams
    I feel your whisper across the sea
    I keep you with me in my heart
    You make it easier when life gets hard."

    That is just beautiful. I use to wear a necklace when my husband was deployed. It was a set of praying hands with the Serenity prayer on the back and his unit crest on it. It was always near to my heart.

    "I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
    Lucky to have been where I have been
    Lucky to be coming home again."

    My husband is my best friend and I'm so in love with him. And I'm LUCKY for the things that I have gone through in my past (lucky to have been where I have been) because it lead me to him. And we were SO lucky and blessed to have him come home alive and well.

    "They don't know how long it takes
    Waiting for a love like this
    Every time we say goodbye
    I wish we had one more kiss
    I'll wait for you I promise you, I will."

    This has got to be my favorite part in the song. Deployments drag on for both the soldier and the spouse and it's hard on both. And of course, there are multiple deployments so it's special to have someone at home in the states waiting for you and someone who cares about how you are and what you are doing for our country. Someone who will never take you for granted and cherishes each and every minute that they've ever spent with you. You remember the last kiss and hold it dear to your heart. The deployments may be long (up to a year depending on which branch and what your job entails) but the soldier you are waiting for is SO worth the wait. It's the best feeling in to world to see them after so long.

    "And so I'm sailing through the sea
    To an island where we'll meet
    You'll hear the music fill the air
    I'll put a flower in your hair
    Though the breezes through the trees
    Move so pretty you're all I see
    As the world keeps spinning round
    You hold me right here right now."

    For some reason I picture this part as a dream. Like I'll see you in my dreams. Nothing else matters in this moment but each other.
