Riskiest Gamble

4000 miles to Vegas baby

The freedom of smelling the night air

Hitting our nostrils like we are on top of the world

We're riding free with the top down,

The air flipping back our hair

Just a couple of lovebirds carrying out their dream

We check into our hotel

Oh the rooms, so elegant

Fancier then anything we've ever seen

Spent all day at the card tables

Losing dollars left and right

All night at the slots

Never hitting it big

But with a sigh of dispair

I retreat to our room

Laying beside you

Looking in your eyes

Even with all the money which slipped through my fingers

And the gambles that failed

As I see into your soul

I know that I took the riskiest gamble

And did nothing but win

I hold you tight

I hear your life breathing

And your chest go up and down


As you begin to fall towards slumber

I remember thinking

"There can never be a better reward then this"

I took a gamble when I walked up to you that day

I knew it was a one in a million chance

"Hey darling, would you take a risk on me?"

I may have lost all our money

We won't miss it

But if I didn't have you

I would miss out

Because when it comes to love

I took the best gamble baby

and I won.
