We are the lucky ones, we know the truth
Our daughters and sons just like us in our youth
Generations before us watch over from above
They filled us with faith and they showered us with love

My girl's just like her mama, loves with all her heart
And my son keeps me smilin' when life seems too hard
We're lucky that we have their love
'Cause some can only dream
So I never take for granted what I know means everything

We are the lucky ones
We are the lucky ones

We are the lucky ones, we know the score
There's you and there's me and those fools at our door
They want what we have, but they don't understand
It's a secret that keeps us still holdin' hands

We are the lucky ones
We are the lucky ones

Time keeps on tickin' while we watch the clock
We learn from mistakes, yeah we've been around the block
The way that this cruel world turns some upside down
It's amazing to me that we're still hangin' 'round

Strange as it seems
I live my life like some sweet dream
One day I'm flying through the air
Next I'm danglin' by a string
Tell me, am I walkin' on coals or treadin' on thin ice
To have a little heaven here on earth
Well, hell I'll pay the price

We are the lucky ones
We are the lucky ones
