Track Name: Bought And Wrapped
'Bought And Wrapped' is a brand new track from Sweden’s Mockingbird, Wish Me Luck - a melancholy indie-pop Christmas song which, following the band's tradition, will be announced on the the 1st day of Swedish advent (2012 saw them announce the release of 'This Year').

Their debut album “Days Come And Go” has now been expanded with additional tracks (released in January 2013) made the top five list of albums of the year for Sweden’s national newspaper Sydsvenskan:

“Wry, sincere hometown poetry” NME
"The latest gang of Swedes aiming to out-twee the Brits" Clash
"Grand songs, delivered well" Stool Pigeon
"Gorgeous indie pop " Swedesplease.net

Mockingbird, Wish Me Luck are an 8-piece pop-orchestra from Ängelholm, Sweden, who make genuine bittersweet pop records that sit comfortably next to Belle & Sebastian, David & the Citizens, Jens Lekman and Bright Eyes.

LYRICS:

Bought and wrapped but left inside my cupboard.

365 days now since I wanted you to know how much I cared for you.

I thought it through, found this second-hand bookshop, thought I was pretty smart.


It's the same walk home through the slushy streets.

And it's the same boys choir outside the church.

But there's no tidings of comfort and joy.


First edition, slightly used, the cover's worn but I wrapped it real nice in shining blue and with golden lace.

The snow it fell I guess we fell beside it, silently disintegrating as we hit the ground.


It's the same walk home through the slushy streets.

And it's the same boys choir outside the church.

But now the bells ring out of tune.


And now the snowflakes fall again it's been a year, can hardely remember anything.
But I remember you, and how you danced and sang to Justin Bieber.

"A good song's a good song" you said. We both agreed to that.


It's the same walk home through the slushy streets.

And it's the same boys choir outside the church.
But there's no tidings of comfort and joy.

It's the same songs sung at the gl?gg parties.

But now the words sound fake, what's holy about it?

There'll be no tidings of comfort and joy.


Bought and wrapped but left inside my cupboard.

365 days now since I last saw you.
