Lyrics

I know the kind of man you want to be
Hearts in your hand, and with diamonds up your sleeve
But you’re gambling your life away
On games you don’t know how to play
So let’s just throw the dice and watch it roll

Her young heart cannot take this game of chance
The winner writes the story, leaves the loser in the past
Well then hindsight is a luxury
And the future we will wait and see
So let’s just throw the dice and watch it roll

‘Cos every time you try, it falls to tricks and lies
And every time you go, a little piece of her dies
And even when you’re there, you’re never by her side
So you’re losing the one, the girl that you love, and left behind

Ambition running high, inhibitions low
The world owes you a living and you let everybody know
But lose sight of the real prize
And one day son, you’ll realise
That everything you have is just for show

‘Cos every time you try, it falls to tricks and lies
And every time you go, a little piece of her dies
And even when you’re there, you’re never by her side
So you’re losing the one, the girl that you love, and left behind
