  • When all have lost faith in you
    'cause the dice you threw didn't show your number
    And they all think your winning days are through
    I'll be there to pick you up.
    Your confidence mustn't start to drop
    I'll take my chance 'cause I have faith in you.
    So spin the wheel
    Call your number - lucky my stakes on you
    We may lose but the game we must play and it's true.
    Life's the dealer and your cards I cannot see
    Out all on earth I'll take my chances on you.
    Take my chances on you - take my chances on you
    Take my chances on you - take my chances on you
    When all your so called friends used to call
    Forget your number 'cause they all think
    You're a star fallen from the sky.
    I'll be there right by your side my love
    For you cannot be denied I'll see it through
    'cause I believe in you.
    So roll the dice
    Call your number
    Lucky I'm there with you.
    We may lose but the game we must play
    And it's true lifes kicked you down
    And your heart is filled with pain
    But of all on earth Ill take my chances on you.
    Take my chances on you - take my chances on you . . .
    So roll the dice call your number
    . . .
    Take my chances on you - take my chances on you . . .
    'cause I believe in you
    Yeah.
    Take my chances on you - take my chances on you . . .
