Imagine Dragons – I Bet My Life lyrics

[Verse:]
I knew I took the path
That you would never want for me
I know I let you down, didn't I?
So many sleepless nights
Where you were waiting up on me
Well I'm just a slave unto the
night

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now remember when I told you
That's the last you'll see of me?
Remember when I broke you down to tears?
I knew I took the path
That you would never want for me
I gave you hell through all
the years

[Chorus:]
So I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my life for you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my
life for you

[Verse 2:]
I've been around the world
And never in my wildest dreams
Would I come running home to you
I've told a million lies, but
Now I tell a single truth
There's you
in everything I do

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now remember when I told you
That's the last you'll see of me?
Remember when I broke you down to tears?
I knew I took the path
That you would never want for me
I gave you hell through all the years

[Chorus:]
So I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my life for you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my life for you

[Bridge:]
Don't tell me that I'm wrong
I've walked that road before
And left you on your own
And please, believe them when they say
That it's left for yesterday
And the records that I play
Please forgive me for all I've done

[Chorus:]
So I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my life for you
I, I bet my life
I bet my life, I bet my life for you

    In an interview the Imagine Dragons said that this song was about the bad relationship Dan had with his parents. So keeping that in mind:

    This song is about how Dan as a child had a bad relationship with his parents and he did what they didn't want him to. he left one day and said he would never come back. then he did travel the whole world and ended up coming back to apologies.
