"Roulette" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora....
Bet the black comes in red, crimes of passion rule my head.
I need you, you want him, dressed to kill we live in sin.

I know the game you play, I know it well.
You just keep on playin' when all the bets are down.

Roulette roulette you're goin' round in a spin,
Caught up in a game you just can't win.
Roulette, you're just a fantasy.
It's everything that you want it to be.

Play the numbers one by one, fire the shot and the damage is done.
Restless lovers pay the price, cheating hearts don't think twice.

When you make the rules no one can slow you down,
You just keep 'em waiting when you're on the prowl.

Roulette roulette you're goin' round in a spin,
Caught up in a game you just can't win.
Roulette, you're just a fantasy.
It's everything that you want it to be.

Roulette roulette you're goin' round in a spin,
Caught up in a game you just can't win.
Roulette, you're just a fantasy.
It's everything that you want it to be.

Backdoor runner got away this time,
Leaves her mark at the scene of the crime.
Nothing matters, no faces, no names,
You're just a number, it's all the same.
You just love to play the game.

I know the game you play, I know it well.
You just keep on playin' when all the bets are down.

Roulette roulette you're goin' round in a spin,
Caught up in a game you just can't win.
Roulette, you're just a fantasy.
It's everything that you want it to be.

Roulette roulette you're goin' round in a spin,
Caught up in a game you just can't win.
Roulette, you're just a fantasy.
It's everything that you want it to be

    General CommentThis is a great song, I think its about someone having an affair, because of the line : "Restless lovers pay the price, cheating hearts don't think twice." Hes cheating on someone and although he loves the other person, he can't stop cheating (hence caught up in a game you cant win)
