Gambling

It’s risky business to love someone
and expect to be loved back.
It’s risky business to love someone
and hope they love you, too.
But if you ever find a good one, brother,
and you let her go, you’d be a fool.

Lost and confused,
Run up and run down.
You’ve been left in the dust
with nothing but a frown.
It’s risky business to love someone,
and expect to be loved back.
When you let your heart go,
you may never get it back.

You started out happy,
you ended confused.
You used to dance the disco
now your strumming away the blues.
It’s risky business to love someone,
and expect to be loved back.
You got to throw all your chips in,
and you never know when you might lose.

I came home from work
with dinner on the table,
a nice warm kiss and
my favorite show on the cable.
It’s risky business to love someone,
and expect to be loved back.
But sometimes you hit it right,
you’ve got to give it back as long as you’re able.

It’s risky business to love someone
and expect to be loved back.
It’s risky business to love someone
and hope they love you, too.
But if you ever find a good one, brother,
and you let her go, you’d be a fool.
