With a throw and a roll
It could take control
And gamble us away
Following the fool
We're sliding in the groove
And I expect that's
Where we'll stay

Chorus:
I'm telling you
It's not a game
Play with the fire
And you'll live with the flame
Hey now, there's nothing new
I'm damned if I don't
And I'm damned if I do

There's a road that you take
And there's the one
You leave alone
There's a view of the highway
In my happy home
I said that I love you
While I said goodbye
You can part and remember
With a smile or a sigh

Chorus

Hard to be leavin'
Impossible to stay
The road that we took
Revealed the one
We have to take
You kneel in the sanctuary
And pray forever more
But when you fly from the cage
Don't forget to lock the door

Chorus
