love is a gamble lyrics – randy travis

back when i was
still in school
i got taught as a rule
that my heart
could always fool my head
so i tripped and fell a lot
learning what true love was not
till one evening mama said
we ought to talk

chorus
she said love is a gamble
itâ’s a chance that you take
you lay your heart down
and you bet it wonâ’t break
you bet your sweet dreams
wonâ’t get tattered and torn
but when that happens
you must shake off those blues
just remember
youâ’ve got nothing to lose
but youâ’ve had true love
since the day you were born
since the day you were born

then she told me all she knew
about what makes true love true
and it hasnâ’t much to do with heat
young hearts race
and then grow still
p*ssion cools and always will
but a river just keeps
filling up the sea

chorus
you see love is a gamble
itâ’s a chance that you take
you lay your heart down
and you bet it wonâ’t break
you bet your sweet dreams
wonâ’t get tattered and torn
but when that happens
you must dream up some more
when you find it
youâ’ll have seen it before
but youâ’ve had true love
since the day you were born

chorus
love is a gamble
itâ’s a chance that you take
to lay your heart down
and you bet it wonâ’t break
you bet your sweet dreams
wonâ’t get tattered and torn
but when that happens
you must shake off those blues
and just remember
you got nothing to lose
youâ’ve had true love
since the day you were born
since the day you were born
