lyrics

oh lucky you you lucky charm walking round town with a girl on each arm
dressed to the nines looking alright
yeah lucky you between pendulum beats drifting to sleep with a kiss on each cheek
from two heavy hearts p a c i n g apart
but i see it now how we’ve deepened your frown seems a girl on each arm
can start weighing you down and i’ve got this sinking feeling

that Wishbone you are the one that will be broken
you are the lucky one we’ve both pinned our hopes on
only one of us can win and still we stand to gain
whilst the one we’re prizing open must fracture all the same
and Wishbone
you are the one that will be broken

so set me sail while i’m still taking stock while i’m still sure and still sorry you’re not
before the ink in your skin sets in
yeah set me sail let me slip from your side while it’s all just a dream
while you’re still blurry eyed but it’s so clear that if i stay here

then Wishbone you are the one that will be broken
you are the lucky one we’ve both pinned our hopes on
only one of us can win and still we stand to gain
whilst the one we’re prizing open must fracture all the same
and Wishbone
you are the one that will be broken

but i don’t mind i’ll be here on the side lines
holding my breath too long for you sometimes
i don’t need lines i don’t need rings no
i could own england and still owe you everything
but tonight i’m drunk and i’m seeing double and i’ll scream there’s your trouble
there’s your trouble there’s your trouble there’s your trouble there’s your trouble...

Wishbone you are the one that will be broken
you are the lucky one we’ve both pinned our hopes on
only one of us can win and still we stand to gain
whilst the one we’re fighting over must fracture all the same
and Wishbone you are the one that will be broken
