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
It's a chance that you take
You lay your heart down
And you bet it won't break
You bet your sweet dreams
Won't get tattered and torn
But when that happens
You must shake off those blues
Just remember you've got nothing to lose
But you'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 hasn't much to do with heat
Young hearts race and then grow still
Passion cools and always will
But a river just keeps filling up the sea

CHORUS
You see love is a gamble
It's a chance that you take
You lay your heart down
And you bet it won't break
You bet your sweet dreams
Won't get tattered and torn
But when that happens
You must dream up some more
When you find it you'll have seen it before
But you've had true love
Since the day you were born

CHORUS
Love is a gamble
It's a chance that you take
To lay your heart down
And you bet it won't break
You bet your sweet dreams
Won't get tattered and torn
But when that happens
You must shake off those blues
And just remember you got nothing to lose
You've had true love
Since the day you were born
Since the day you were born
