Lyrics

Lucky

Written By: Jeff Nesmith

If you're lucky and you get your mothers eyes
In each one a star from a summer sky
When you smile, you'll light a young man's heart
Like the time she first set fire to mine.
If you're lucky and you get your mother's hair,
A soft warm blanket keepin' out the cold air,
You'll let it fall and bring a young man to his knees
Like the calling of the sirens beneath the sea.
And I hope you get a little bit from me,
There's a thing or two I wanna show you how to do,
You're not yet born but you're off to a darn good start
If you have half the love that's in your mother's heart.
--
If I was you, I'd take your mother's name
And the strength she's shown alone through the pain,
Like an angel when a young man's beaten down,
You'll pick him up and put his feet back on the ground.
And I hope you get a little bit from me,
There's a little bit I hope you never see.
But for now, you're off to a darn good start,
With half the love that's in your mother's heart.
---
If you're lucky and you get your mother's hands,
A gentle touch I used to take for granted,
When you hold mine you'll make an old man come to life,
And then you'll let 'em go to be some young man's wife.
But I hope you keep a little piece of me,
In time you'll find a little piece is all you need.
From now on we'll never be apart,
With half the love that's in your mother's heart.
