about

A song about winning the lottery and how life can be crap.

lyrics

Wishing upon a falling star, sinking in the lifeboat, crashing in the car
If you won the lottery what would you buy for me?
Forgotten dreams stored in an ASDA bag, a can of beer and a Mayfair fag
The biggest mansion or just a cup of tea?

There has to be something more than you can see
Boozing all day to escape reality
That doesn't sound like a life to me

Hooked on pills that ease the pain, calm you down and destroy your brain
If I won the lottery what would I buy for you?
A Life Less Ordinary, Golden Eye, Ewan and Pearce will get you by
A year in rehab, but would it be any use?

There has to be something more than you can see
Popping those pills to escape your domestic scene
That doesn't sound like a life to me
That doesn't sound like a life to me

There has to be something more than you can see
Everything's fucked when the real world is a dream
That doesn't sound like a life to me
That doesn't sound much like a life to me....
