The Angel and the Gambler Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Roll of the dice
Take a spin of the wheel
Out of your hands now
So how do you feel
But you're not gonna win
You'd better go back again
Verse 2
Do you feel lucky
Or do you feel scared
Take what luck brings
And be Devil may care
But you're down on your luck
What will the next day bring
Verse 3
Adrift on the ocean
Afloat in a daydream
Or lost in a maze
Or blind in the haze
So what does it matter
So why don't you answer
So why did you send
An angel to mend
Verse 4
Best make decisions
Before it's too late
Take all your chances
Take hold of the reins
A roll of the dice
Ahead of the game again
Verse 5
Nothing to lose
But so much to gain
A little danger
It goes without saying
But what do you care
You're gonna go in the end
Gate open to heaven
Verse 6
Is ready and waytnig
Or straight down to hell
Can go there as well
Verse 7
I'll suffer my craving
My soul's not worth saving
Sowhy don't you go
Just leave well alone
Verse 8
Don't you think I'm a savior
Don't you think I could save you
Don't you think I could save your life
Verse 9
There's like a hunger
That knocks on your door
You've had a taste of it
Still you want more
You've made your mistakes
Won't play it the same again
Verse 10
You have been warned
But still you plunge in
You play high stakes
But there's nothing to win
You've only one life
And so many things to learn
Verse 11
The Angel on one side
The Devil the other
Which path do you take
Decisions to make
Verse 12
Arrive at the crossroads
You know where you're going
And what if you wait
It may be too late
