"The Gambler" as written by and Frank Leo....
The ball dropped in the cold light dawning on a cold eastern morning
Not shocked, can’t be too appalled when there were so many warnings
I hear you knock, I hear you unlock my door
I don’t want you to have, have my key anymore

Shoes on but the mailbox is empty when there could have been something
Well’s dry, I’m out of empathy, this shouldn’t end with both of us dead
I’d like to help you but we’ve been here before
Yes, I’m aware of the stakes, I can’t afford anymore

Cause you’re a gambler in need, you’re a gamble indeed
You’re a gambler in need now, a gamble indeed
I took a walk and I counted all the ways that I invest and I’m left with nothing much to show
You’re a gambler in need and I need you to know

Take, take from the ones you feel you can
Make, make promises unreal and you
Break everyone down, next time I won’t be around

Cause you’re a gambler in need, you’re a gamble indeed
You’re a gambler in need now, a gamble indeed
You’re a gambler in need, you’re a gamble indeed
You’re a gambler in need now, a gamble indeed
I took a walk and I counted all the ways that I invest and I'm left with nothing much to show
You're a gambler in need and I want you to go
