John Kelly: Music & Lyrics

Be A Little Luckier

(Words & Music - John Kelly)
Be A Little Luckier

Words come cheap
But there always in demand
I find it so hard to speak
I’ll be honest if I can
Or maybe you would be so kind
Maybe you could read my mind

If only you could
I wouldn’t have to say
Say these words
To make me understood
Maybe you would be so kind
Maybe you could read my mind

I know I stole
All your peace of mind
Drove you insane
A twisted chain
I never looked where I was headed
I was hooked on every bar

Chorus

Do you wanna be
Here a little longer
I’ll be a little wiser
We’ll be a little luckier

When I see sad eyes
Sadder than you
Watch the demise
Of health and youth
Maybe you could be so kind
Maybe you could change my mind

If only you could I wouldn’t have to say
Say these words to make me understood
Maybe you would be so kind
Maybe you could read my mind


Chorus
