lyrics

There ain't much to make you feel old
Like your flaws and regrets laid bare to the world
I keep mine bottled upon my shelf
Next to my own damn bad luck I made for myself

But it should not be so
If freedom is a burden on my back I should be thankful for the load
And I'll leave the cold comfort of complaining behind me
For good or bad, at least my luck's my own

You live your days ruled by chance
Out in no-man's land between the mortar shells
I won't begrudge you your superstitions
When all your bad luck just seems to make itself

And I'll thank my stars
That I have got no need to put my faith in the turning of a tarot card
And I'll leave the cold comfort of complaining behind me
For good or bad, at least my luck's my own
