Lottery

Should have made the call
Seen the writing on the wall
Twenty twenty crystal clear
Looking back I didn’t want to hear
You shut it down
I just kept pretending, pretending
It was you and me
And it would always be

Well he said to me “love’s a lottery”
A game you play, a game, a game
Wish I’d listened better then
Before I gave my heart again
It’s a game, a game
All or nothing, baby
All or nothing
A game, a game
One day I will learn
One day…

Should have known it then
Instead I kept pretending, defending
Everything’s okay
It’s what I did- I looked the other way
And I didn’t see
All the lies he told me
He sold me
For a crumb or two
When you’re used to nothing
I guess that’s what you’ll do

And he said to me “love’s a lottery
A game you play, a game a game
Lose or win, no guarantee”
His words keep coming back to me
It’s a game, a game

All or nothing, all or nothing
A game, a game
One day I will learn….

Water rolling underneath our bridge,
our bridge
Water rolling waves above above my
head
Down down, down
What have I come to
Oh round, round, round
Who can I run to
Oh now it’s all or nothing
Black or white
It’s either him or me….

Well I don’t believe
Love’s a lottery
I don’t believe
It’s a game, a game
You leave it in the rain it rusts
Let it burn it will turn to dust
No, no
All or nothing, all or nothing
There’s got to be something,
Something in between
For me

Love’s no lottery
Love’s no game you play
Love’s no lottery
Love’s no game….
No lottery
