“The Luckiest” by Ben Folds
In this sweet song from 2001, Ben Folds talks about his own personal stumbles and luck that he has found a love that will last a lifetime.
I don’t get many things right the first time,
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns the stumbles,
And falls brought me here
And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face,
Now I see it every day
And I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
“Forever” by Ben Harper
Ben Harper sings about how he has grown tired of the absent promise of the world forever in this gorgeous song about true commitment.
Not talkin’ ’bout a year
No not three or four
I don’t want that kind of forever
In my life anymore
Forever always seems
To be around when it begins
But forever never seems
To be around when it ends
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do

When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

We’re still together still going strong
