lyrics

You can bet your bottom dollar
You’ll never see that dollar again
You can pick my door if you want to
But baby what’s behind it
Just ain’t grand

You can lay your cards down baby
You may even win sometime
But when the rainbow fades its colors
You’ll see the gold was only in your mind
Only in your mind

So you best think of this
Loving me poses you a risk
Yeah you best think of this
I am a high risk

And like the salt on your dinner
I add some flavor but then I’m gone
And like a long and winding river
I change direction so much you may drown
Yeah you may drown

I know you’ll think I’m wrong
But let me know when you’ve been torn
Between a life worth betting on
And a life worth running from

Should you wake up and catch me dreaming
Of some far off distant land
Just remember the game we’re playing
There are winners and losers
In every single hand
Every single hand
