Lyrics



I was 19 and you were 23 and

We stayed in Number 4 Ferdinand Street

We spent five talking about our lives

But we'd talked like that about a thousand times

And I'm bored of all that



You used to tell me that

Love is a lottery

And you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

You used to say that

Love is a game

But you got your numbers

And you're betting on me



I'll tell you about a guy

That I've been with

And you ask "How old as he?"

And I laugh "26, no but– he's 30

How messed up is that?"

"Well forget it" he says

"I'm a jealous man

And I don't want to talk about that"



You used to tell me that

Love is a lottery

And you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

You used to say that

Love is a game

But you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

Are you still betting on me?



Hold on, my dear

Hold on real tight

It's just a numbers game

In my mind

And we've been here a thousand times

A thousand times

A thousand



You used to tell me that

Love is a lottery

But you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

You used to say that

Love is a game

But you got your numbers

And you'll play it anyway

You used to tell me that

Love is a lottery

But you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

You used to tell me that

Love is a lottery

But you got your numbers

And you're betting on me

Are you still betting on me?

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
