When you love someone

And then you found you've lost

Why must a true heart be left to pay the cost

Why must a heart that has been true

Be broken and sad, so empty and blue

 

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you

Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you

Someday you'll know why I'm so blue

When you've gambled your heart

And you've lost it too

 

Why must it be the one you want most of all

They'll build you up and then let you fall

They'll lead you on, you'll think that they're true

They'll love you then leave you so empty and blue

 

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you

Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you

Someday you'll know why I'm so blue

When you've gambled your heart

And you've lost it too
