Riches To Rags

04:33

Lyrics

Well, I've heard a million reasons, and most of them are true

That this hand that I'm gambling ain't gonna do

 

While you were taking your slow drag

You went from riches to rags

And you let yourself go

Let it get a hold on you

 

I don't understand baby

Why everything you do 

Feels so good 

And so cruel

 

You always take the high road

And look down with a frown 

You wish you were more involved 

But you can't get your feet on the ground

 

Well, everything changes

No, nothing stays the same

It's everyday reconstruction 

For everyone you've blamed 

 

I don't understand baby

Why everything you do 

Feels so good 

And so cruel

 

Well, I've heard a million reasons, and most of them are true

That this hand that I'm gambling ain't gonna do
