Gamble

 

Now you’re all set to make your bet

And see if your chances are real…

…Or just another waste of time

With no one by your side

 

It all started as an insecure joke

But somewhere along your way...

You ran out of words and no one spoke…

And now you have nothing left to say

 

But it might not be all over yet

With this last…lucky bet

Spinning around just like Russian roulette

With one bullet in an, otherwise, empty chamber

Calling you to quit and check out of hotel

Calling you to change your views

Your expensive shirt and dirty shoes
