lyrics

LOTTERY by Greetings and Goodbyes

verse 1
I played the numbers and won the lottery
I got more money than I could ever need
but it’s not the dream I thought that it would be
I bought a mansion with million dollar views
I bought a boat and a helicopter, too
but the stuff just sits there, it’s not fun for me
now all these people are waiting by my door
I don’t go out there or answer anymore
oh I miss my friends and miss my family

chorus 1
money comes, money goes, it’s very hard to hold
all the dollars I spent, I don’t know where they went
money lost, money made, I’m winning at the game
but it cost me everything, the day I won the lottery,
the day I won the lottery

verse 2
I quit my job and responsibilities
I have more free time than I could ever need
but my motivation just keeps falling flat
I took a cruise to a tropical resort
sat by the beach, but I kept on getting bored
oh I miss the simple pleasures from the past

chorus 2
money comes, money goes, it’s very hard to hold
all the dollars I spent, I don’t know where they went
money lost, money made, I’m winning at the game
but it cost me everything, the day I won the lottery,
the day I won the lottery

bridge
I’m tired of the cameras, tired of the calls,
tired of the fear that I could lose it all
I wish those lucky numbers were never mine
I lost my inspiration, lost simplicity,
lost the innocence of who I used to be
I wish those lucky numbers were never mine

chorus 3
but money comes, money goes, it’s very hard to hold
all the dollars I spent, I don’t know where they went
money lost, money made, I’m winning at the game
but it cost me everything, the day I won...
la la la, la la la, la la la la la..... the day I won the lottery,
the day I won the lottery
