You're no angel, I'm no saint, if we were
We wouldn't be in this place tonight

Lost and lonely, scared and confused
We both have a past, nothing to lose, tonight
Well it cuts like a knife these bad luck blues
We both got scars from the hell we been thru
Somebody's gotta win, somebody's gotta lose

So let's roll the dice, one more time
Take a chance on love again tonight
Risk it all, lay it on the line
Let the skeletons fight for life
Tonight, hold on tight, as we collide

Reconnected, feelin' no pain
Seeking shelter like a spark in the rain, tonight (ooh yeah)
Worn and weathered, scared to go home
We're here together, but still all alone, tonight (uh uh yeah)
And there's no need to lie, we've both been abused
The love and the pain, the cocaine and booze, now
Most people don't, but some people do

So let's roll the dice, one more time
Take a chance on love again tonight
Risk it all, lay it on the line
Let the skeletons fight for life
Tonight, hold on tight, as we collide!

    I can't think of anyone else he could have done this duet with. Sheryl Crow just knocks it out the park...bad ass song

    2 people who have experienced bad relationships & both about ready to give in and say never again until they collide into each other. Now they're going to give love another chance... With each other, bare soul & open closet... No secrets.

    Two people who used to be together but went separate ways and have someone waiting at home. Somehow life brought these two back together and they are willing to put their current lives at risk because of the pain associated with those relationships and for the chance to see if their love is still alive and can make life better... Even if just for one night.

    I believe this song is about two people who have had troubled relationships in the past. They are both afraid to hurt again, but are willing to try with each other.
