One day we'll get out of this shitty apartment
One day is all it takes for things to turn around
Now all I know is I got you and you got me, babe

And when that morning comes, I'll make coffee and you'll read the paper
We'll talk about our plans, and I'll keep saying how lucky we are

One day we'll get in the car and drive anywhere we wanna go
And then we'll stay in a five-star, mini bar luxury hotel room
Cause all I know is I got you and you got me, babe

And when that morning comes, I'll make coffee and you'll read the paper
We'll talk about our plans, and I'll keep saying how lucky we are

How lucky we are, oh o o oh
How lucky we are, oh o o ohh
How lucky we are, oh a oh
How lucky we are are are

One day we'll turn on the tv and we won't see nothin' 'bout war

And when that morning comes, I'll make coffee and you'll read the paper
We'll talk about our plans, and I'll keep saying how lucky we are

How lucky, how lucky, how lucky we are, oh
How lucky, how lucky, how lucky we are, oh
How lucky, how lucky, how lucky we are, oh
How lucky, how lucky, how lucky we are

    Gosh, that line is amazing. I heard her play live and when Meiko sang that line my friend and I both turned to each other and before we even said anything we silently decided we love this song.
    We take the basics for granted.

    Meiko is da bomb.

    General Commenti love that line as well. even though her words sound a bit facetious, it's still a lovely song and her voice is refreshing.

    General CommentSince anyone has yet to analyze these lyrics, I'll be the first.
    Pretty self-explainatory, I suppose. It's about a woman whose optimistic about the future. What I really love about this song is that's its very simple. Its extremely human. Everyone dreams of moving into a new, nice place, spending a weekend at a swanky hotel, but then it goes deeper with a somewhat suble plea for peace. I think it might not fit too well in the song, but that was exactly the intent. Maybe that lifes not all about fanciness, but there are bigger problems to deal with.

    General Commenti agree with lexie about the optimistic thing. but, it's also her optimism of building a whole new life with the one she loves. "Now all I know is I got you and you got me" i think it says so right there. and she keeps using "we" and always including the idea of having a nice future with the one she loves. and she feels lucky to have someone to share that with.
