- Catastrophe -

i walked away from a ten car pile-up
and i missed the plane on that fateful day
three hundred dead and amsterdam burning
i lost my best suitcase and the airline paid

and taking everything into account
i'd have to say everything's turned out alright

i got shipwrecked and the waves were ten feet high
and the only one the coastguard found was me
no food no nothing and i can't even swim
some say i'm lucky and somehow i can't disagree

and taking everything into account
i'd have to say everything's turned out alright

and you decided to leave me and i thought i was lucky
i called you a cab, i said that i'd even pay
and as i waved you away, was that a tear in my eye
and how was i to know that the brakes would fail

catastrophe - never happens to me
catastrophe - never happens to me
catastrophe - never happens to me
catastrophe - never happens to me
