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 on you
I, I bet my life, I bet my life
I bet my life on you
 
I’ve been around the world
And never in my wildest dreams
Would I come runnin’ home to you
I’ve told a million lies but now I'll 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 on you
I, I bet my life, I bet my life
I bet my life on you
 
Don’t tell me that I’m wrong
I’ve walked that road before
Left you on your own
Please believe them when they say
That it’s left for yesterday
In the records that I play
Please forgive me for all I’ve done
 
So I, I bet my life
I bet my life
I bet my life on you
I, I bet my life, I bet my life
I bet my life on you
