Well the dice that I roll
never seems to land on six
and that 48 card pack
is short of some of my old tricks


The horse I bet on all those years ago
is probably still running round the track
Like the marriage that I gambled on
I'm due my money back



We could've learned, we could've burned
from the firework love ignites
Well the dice that I roll
never seems to land on six
and that 48 card pack
is short of some of my old tricks


The horse I bet on all those years ago
is probably still running round the track
Like the marriage that I gambled on
I'm due my money back



We could've learned, we could've burned
from the firework love ignites
