It's no secret I've been waiting
But I didn't expect this
Nothing will remain
Nothing stays the same
After you came

It's no secret I've been starving
I never felt anything for years
I sat up all night
Just to watch your smile
When you're sleeping

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
I could've been somewhere else
You could've passed by, could've passed by

Come on and sail the sea with me
Come on, let's go around the world
Maybe find a flat
Or a canyon house
For the season

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
It could've been someone else
You had in mind
I was so lucky you found me
My rags turned gold and silver
I could've been somewhere else
You could've passed by, could've passed by

What would you make of this, my baby?
The sun through the trees
Is there a better place to be?

I was so lucky you came by
And turned a different corner
It could have been someone else
You had in mind, oh my
I was so lucky you picked me
My trash turned to silver
Yea, I could have been somewhere else
You could've passed by, could'be passed by
