The Luckiest

Lyrics

I don't get many things right the first time,
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns the stumbles,
And falls brought me here

I love this song & only pray that God will send someone who feels this way to me someday.
When this album released I said this was going to be my wedding song ... five years later it was. I was surprised to find so many other people who chose "The Luckiest," but why wouldn't they? It's perfect.
this song gives me the chills. just sayin.

best love song. lost my husband. it was ours. made my day to hear this!
This may be the best love song ever written. When I first heard it, I thought his voice was too scratchy when he sings "that I am, I am, I am the luckiest" but after I really payed attention to the lyrics, I fell in love with it. It's so beautiful, it makes me stop whatever I'm doing to listen to it every time. Beautiful, purely and simply beautiful.

Love it. Brings me to tears at how true the words are.
Ben sure knows how to write and compose a great song.
This is one of those songs that leaves an ache in your heart when you hear it
Easily the best Ben Folds song since "Brick."

OMG! The greatest love song ever written. When my now husband played this for me I think we both cried. When he proposed there was no question that this was the song we would dance to. I still cry when I here it!
