love and other games of chance

written by Larry John Macnally


She sees life as it is man
She ain't no dreamer
Everything is black and white
She ain't sentimental, I know she don't love me
I'm just someone to hold through the night
I guess somebody, somewhere, must have hurt my baby

Cause now she's thrown up her hands
To love and other games of chance

Listen, I think you needed somebody
Someone who didn't need you
Still you bet the house on our heart
But the thing is, I think we never stop loving
Whoever we've loved, and that's the cruelest part
I pray somebody's watching over us

Cause our fate is in the hands
Of love and other games of chance

Hey maybe somebody's trying to tell us something
Something that we don't wanna hear
Like maybe the things that we've wanted are bad for us

But does just denying them make them disappear
I guess sometimes we've got to believe in things
That we don't understand
Like love and other games of chance
Yeah, like love and other games of chance
