Go-betweens — It Could Be Anyone lyrics

One light
One light's all you need
To keep the dark out
One look
One look's all it takes
To put the fire out
Too close and he knew it
His knowledge cost him everything he had
Too tired to feel it
You shake him
And the only thing that breaks
You shake him
And the only thing that breaks
Are bones and bones and bones
And bones and bones that break
Almost
Almost something
You read and dream about
Bad luck
It's just bad luck
The good luck's all run out
The noises came and the noises went
With promises that were heaven sent
Lies are told when lives are spent
You shake him
And the only thing that breaks
Shake him
And the only thing that breaks
Are bones and bones and bones
And bones and bones that break
You'll never, never, never, never break him
You'll never, never, never, never take him
You'll never, never, never, never waste him
You'll never, never waste him
You'll never, never take him
You'll never, never waste him
You'll never waste him
One hand, one life
One hand, one life
