This is the last time I'll say it
Cause I might be too busy to write
And this time I mean it
Cause I'm leaving town tonight

Well I'm gone
I'm leaving town
Well I'm gone
I'm leaving you

So I sit alone again
Maybe winter will pass me by
Like a candle in the wind
Doesn't mean that I won't try
If summer comes around
I'll break out of this shell
I'll never come back down
Even though I may fail

Will you ever take a stand?
Tell anyone anything?
Cause if you don't stand for something
You will always stand for nothing

A girl might build me up
But then I'd take a fall
Cause if it weren't for bad luck
I'd have no luck at all
Pretend I'm what I'm not
Packing heat to make me tough
Will I ever get a shot
To do what I love

Will you ever take a chance?
It just might change your life
Just believe in yourself
Take my hand and roll the dice

Roll the dice
