Buddy Holly – I Gambled My Heart lyrics

When you've loved someone
And then 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
