spin the wheel and guess the color
this is a night we’ll never get back
the ball is picking it’s place
and we’re not winning a race

as the wheel spins
the colors and lines blur
just a swift moment
before the game is over

remember those times
when life flashed before our eyes
transfixed on those dollar signs
taking a chance
on a new found romance
with the risks being greater
than every reward

who really wins
it’s just a cheap thrill
like a twenty dollar bill
it doesn’t last as long as it used to

begging for the chance
to make this night last
hoping that someone will come back
and take us away
leading us down that golden highway
to the place of our hopes and dreams
where we could have anything
our riches are countless
and this night is now ours

remember those times
when life flashed before our eyes
transfixed on those dollar signs
taking a chance
on a new found romance
with the risks being greater
than every reward

now what do you say
when we throw it away
was it worth it
leaving our lives at stake
putting our hearts in the fate
of a small little ball
we were determined
not to lose it all

remember those times
when life flashed before our eyes
transfixed on those dollar signs
taking a chance
on a new found romance
with the risks being greater
than every reward
