For People Who Are Lucky Enough
Words and Music by John Allee

For people who are lucky enough
It might seem just like breathing
Unconscious and unnoticed
The kind of thing they’d barely recall
As if they’d never been there at all

For people who are lucky enough
They wouldn’t see you reeling
Or trying to be stoic
No, they couldn’t see how hard they can be
On people who are lucky like me

Careless with words
Words that don’t care
Words
Like when I tell you things in confidence
And then you use them heartlessly
To hurt me or embarrass me

And people who are lucky enough
They never know that feeling
Or why it seems to matter
There’s always more to black and to blue
For people who are lucky like you

Careless with words
Words that don’t care
Words
Like when I tell you things in confidence
And then you use them heartlessly
To hurt me or embarrass me

And people who are lucky enough
They never know that feeling
Or why it seems to matter
There’s always more to black and to blue
For people who are lucky like you
