  • 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 through
    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
    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
    As we collide
    As we collide

    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
    As we collide (oh, as we collide)
    As we collide (we collide)
    As we collide (as we collide)
    As we collide
    As we collide (as we collide)
    As we collide
    As we collide
    As we collide Writer/s: MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE
