Found on: OK Computer
Lyrics
Notes
i'm on a roll
i'm on a roll this time
i feel my luck could change

kill me sarah
kill me again with love

it's gonna be a glorious day

pull me out of the aircrash
pull me out of the lake
'cuz i'm your superhero
we are standing on the edge

the head of state
has called for me by name
but i don't have time for him

it's gonna be a glourious day
i feel my luck could change

pull me out of the aircrash
pull me out of the lake
'cuz i'm your superhero

we are standing on the edge
we are standing on the edge
From Ed's sweet, tingling, opening riff, the rest of "Lucky" was generated. "I remember fiddling around in the sound check," he says. "[We] were in Japan- and putting together a different pedal order and actually hitting the strings above the nut on the headstock. The pedals that I did it with, and the delay that was going on. It was one of those moments -'Yeah, this is pretty cool'" From here, "Lucky" was made into what the band considers a "happy" song, or at least as happy a song as they are capable of creating. An identical version, which can be found on both the Help! compilation and the Help! EP, also appears on OK Computer. This wasn't the plan: the band did try to remix the track for the third album but found they couldn't improve on it.
