  • (I bet, I bet my life)
    (I bet my life)
    (I bet my life)
    (I bet my life)

    I know 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

    Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me
    Remember when I broke you down to tears
    I know I took the path that you would never want for me
    I gave you hell through all the years

    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

    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

    Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me
    Remember when I broke you down to tears
    I know I took the path that you would never want for me
    I gave you hell through all the years

    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

    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've played
    Please forgive me for all I've done

    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

    I, I bet my, I bet my, I bet my
    I, I bet my, I bet my, I bet my Writer/s: Benjamin Arthur McKee, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel James Platzman, Daniel Wayne Sermon
