These tables are haunted
Their chips were once mountains
They could take me if they wanted
And like the sands of Nevada

With her head on my shoulder
I still want her to dance
What it is is a I'm older
For a one-way romance
Her dice were red rubies
And I never saw time
And in the wasteland of cut glass
And I've paid with whatever

On a empty horizon
No reason to stay
Too late for criticizing
They go drifting away
