"This song is about long distance relationship’s positive outlook. Josh & I wrote this the same day we recorded it at Rob’s. It’s so much fun, This song will always bring the good vibes. Josh and I wrote this a week before we left the studio. It’s the first song we ever wrote together from start to finish. He had this guitar line that really reminded me of some old Get Up Kids song or something. It didn’t really sound like anything else we’d written before. It’s a simple song. It feels good. And that’s pretty much all there is to it.”

- Hayley Williams

Lyrics[]

Give me attention
I need it now
Too much distance
To measure it out
Out loud
Tracing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the lines overlap
Where the lines overlap

No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Call me over
Tell me how you got so far
Never making a single sound
I'm not used to it but I can learn
Nothing to it
I've never been happier
I've never been happier

No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Now I've got a feeling
If I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I've got a feeling
If I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling
You would sing it back to me
You would sing it back to me

No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us
