The Luck You Got - Josh Malerman

Think of all the luck you got
Know that it’s not for naught
You were beaming once before
But it’s not like that anymore

Count all the moods you’ve known
Know they’re not stuck in stone
You were patient once before
But it’s not like that anymore

What is this down side
That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of
Round up the friends you got
Know that they’re not for naught
You were willing once before
But it’s not like that anymore

The time that you would never trade
Is equal to the effort made
You were simple once before
But it’s not like that anymore

What is this down side
That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of

What is this down side
That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
