The Libertines US – Love Lottery lyrics

Well, it's time once again
To pick the winning numbers
Says the man in the suit
Standing by the popcorn machine
This could be your lucky day
If you hold a ticket
That corresponds exactly
With the numbers that I choose

He says
You can't win if you don't buy a ticket
You can't win if you don't take a chance
Just one dollar pays for your dream
You might win the love lottery

The man in the suit
Asks the crowd to be silent
As he reaches for the door
Of the popcorn machine
He reaches in his hand
And pulls out the only number
In the world that matters
And changes someone's life

He says
You can't win if you don't buy a ticket
You can't win if you don't take a chance
Just one dollar pays for your dream
You might win the love lottery

I used to buy a ticket
Faithfully each week
And pray to sweet Jesus
To steer luck my way
You can waste your whole life
Waiting for a freebie
That costs you a dollar
Every time you dream

He says
You can't win if you don't buy a ticket
You can't win if you don't take a chance
Just one dollar pays for your dream
You might win the love lottery
