Barry Manilow "Fools Get Lucky" lyrics

When I see you lying there
Like a living answered prayer
There are no words
For what I feel for you

My life was once a high trapeze
You pulled me down
And gave me peace
That's something no one else
Could ever do

And on nights like tonight
It scares me recalling
How close I came to falling

But fools get lucky
Fortune must like me
When people ask where you came from
I tell them
Fools get lucky
Destiny likes me
It must be one of nature's rules
Love like yours
Should save the fools like me

WhenI see the good times shine
On this wayward life of mine
I tell the world
It's all because of you

And fools get lucky
Fortune must like me
When people ask where you came from
I tell them
Fools get lucky
Destiny likes me
It must be one of nature's rules
Love like yours
Should save the fools like me
