"Gamble Everything for Love" as written by and Benjamin Michael Lee....
Gamble everything for love, gamble everything
Put it in a place you keep what you need
You can gamble everything for love if you're free
You gotta gamble everything for love

Baby are ya cold, are ya cold baby
I could wrap you up, wrap you up in my love
If you want to, you can gamble everything for love
If you want to, you can gamble everything for love

Tell me are you feeling lost, have you crossed
In the places that you never knew to get through
Tell me are you gonna cry all night
Tell me the truth, and I'll tell you the truth
If you gamble everything for love
You gonna be alright, alright

Make a list of things you need, leave it empty
Except for number one, write "love, gamble everything"
Keep it under lock and key
If you want to, you can gamble everything for love

Love me with an open heart tell me anything
We can find a place to start to gamble everything
We can set this thing apart, 'cause we're gonna, gonna
Gamble everything for love

Tell me do you lose your way each day
Are there people you don't recognize, do they lie?
Tell me does it make you feel too real?
Tell me the truth, and I'll tell you the truth
If you gamble everything for love
You gonna be alright, alright

Oh you can go your own way,
Oh you can go your own way,
Oh you gotta go your own way
If you gamble everything for love
If you gamble everything for love

Gamble everything for love, gamble everything
Put it in a place you keep what you need
You can gamble everything for love if you're free
You gotta gamble everything for love

Tell me are you gettin' hurt, is it worth it?
Tell me are the people strange, do they change?
Tell me are you letting go, do you know?
I'll Tell you the truth, if you tell me the truth
If you gamble everything for love
If you gamble everything for love
If you gamble everything for love
You gonna be alright, alright

Alright

    General CommentEmpty?! I cant agree, this song is my favorite of his. Anyone who has ever literally gambled everything in thier life for love would understand what this is all about. It may be repetitive but the song has a classic message.

    General Commentjust remeber to not concentrate so hard on the fine print that you miss the BIG PRINT! It is indeed an amazing song. < NOW HOLD ON, i could have stopped writing there but that would leave a pretty 'empty' message! actually it's not, people use words like 'amazing' so often and casually that they loose their definition! By me saying Amazing, there is a lot of depth in that, it means a lot! using words like amazing or brilliant (when meant) say what 3 hours of ellaborating would!

    General CommentI agree...kinda. These lyrics are empty, but i think that's what makes the song original and authentic and suits the layout and rhythm of the song. Hell, that's just my opinion. I think this song rocks!

    General Commenti dont think they're empty at all, i think they're expressive and... like youre deepest desire, to throw it all away for the one thing thats really important, even if it is idealistic and a bit irrational... i think it's a really, really beautiful sentiment. I hope to feel this way, one day, to have the guts and the pure feelings to do that.

    General Commenthow can you honestly say that these lyrics are empty? perhaps empty to those you haven't felt a love that would make you feel a song like this. i agree with amygrl about thee best lyrics.. its true.. not empty. quite full of meaning if you ask me.
