about

“Luck” is a song that should be pretty easy to understand. I feel like throughout my life I haven’t had the greatest of luck. Maybe everyone feels that way or maybe it’s just something I use as an excuse, but I have too many instances to point to that prove that I don’t have much luck at all. My wife seems to have the same issue so we’re equally in trouble some days.

I don’t remember a specific event that happened that triggered this theme for a song but somehow when I came up with that opening guitar progression, the words “I don’t know why but my luck, it’s run out on me” just sort of came out of my mouth and I went with it.

This song is another one where I used personification. You can read a little bit more about that in my blog on the song “Waiting” which was featured a few songs earlier on this album. Basically I made “luck” into a human character who has deceived me time and time again, yet I want it come back. It’s also one where the guitar chords and progression is different than what I would usually write, so it turned out to be a unique song overall.

lyrics

I don’t know why but my luck, it’s run out on me
It left in my car at midnight, where could it be?
Cause it’s only light for 12 hours a day
And that ain’t much time to search this whole country

It won’t take long
The past could write this song
And we could sing along
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
But please come back home

I don’t know why but I fell, fell in a hole
I can feel my tires spinning, I’m stuck in the road
Luck it came by and laughed right in my face
I ran it down again, but it sped away

It won’t take long
The past could write this song
And we could sing along
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
But please come back home

Like a knockout punch
In the first round

It won’t take long
The past could write this song
And we could sing along
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
Oh luck you’ve done me wrong
But please come back home
Please come back home
Please come back home
Please come back home
