VIDEO DESCRIPTION & LYRICS:
One Lucky Girl - from Cassendre's album "Live at the Kraftbrau, Kalamazoo". 

music and lyrics by Cassendre Xavier

There is a sadness that comes
From having lived
through all the trials of life
and having given
joy in the ways that we can
in the ways that we're able
to ignore all the rules of the man
and to eat from the table of life

Sometimes I think about how
much I've survived
then I remember the rest avecs in my country
they have nowhere to turn
They have nothing to learn but pain

But I was lucky enough
To have been born here
I had two parent who did 
The best that they could
And I had something to learn
I had somewhere to turn from pain

I am one lucky girl
I'm from two worlds
Made me a pearl

Yeah I'm one lucky girl
With love in both worlds
And I'm a pearl

So now they tell me I'm good
I play the guitar
They tell me I've got a sweet voice
And that I will go far
But I know who my dearest friends are
They were there from the start
Before I ever touched a guitar
They knew my nickname and heart

It doesn't matter that I 
play the guitar 
As long as I know that I'm loved
For just being me 
With nothing in my hands
And with no master plan, just me

Someday I'll visit again
Where all of this started
with vodun and Noel the man
Who flows through my fingers
Bein' in the graces of God
Tasting the rice and the codfish stews

Mangoes and coconut milk
For three gourds a day
Millions of suffering faces
Have not gone away
And my own american mind
Cannot seem to solve this

I am one lucky girl
I'm from two worlds
Made me a pearl

Yeah I'm one lucky girl
With love in both worlds
And I'm a pearl
