I'm no longer jobless and still incredibly lucky.


She saw the star fall and reached out toward the sky to catch it
"We're what they call lovebirds, and I have wings when you are with me
So don't you mock me"

He said, "The stars in your eyes are all that I can wish for
Bright are the freckles in your smile, and I'll make constellations
Though you're impatient"

And we may fight over words
They may say we're just in love to know how our hearts even work
And sometimes it takes mistakes to know just how lucky we were

I'm at the bottom of the fall and stuck inside the well deep
I try to keep the waters down when you're not here to fly me
So come and find me

And we'll make love
We'll make up for time we will have lost when we will see
Each other's scars once again
And sometimes we make mistakes to know just how lucky we've been

We're not a metaphor, but we are only what we make, Kay
I'll be cartographer and chart your ever-wondrous landscapes
I'll be your weatherman and call for sunshine in the darkness
I'll be astronomer and plot the stars as they pass by us
And I'm still jobless

But I'll apply for the post of always-hopeful-sometimes-crabby Michael
For you, and I'll screw up
But sometimes I fake mistakes to know just how lucky I was
