the house always wins
lyrics

Once I loved a woman

Once we shared a name

But the tide pulled us under

And now we can't get up again Well I wish someone had told me

You're gonna sink before you swim

You may take a couple of rounds

But the house always wins I thought our love would last forever

We would raise a family

But the cards were dealt against us

It was never meant to be When love walks out and leaves you

Loneliness steps in

You make take a couple of rounds

But the house always wins

Whoa oh yeah When I sat down at the table

I was a younger man

I thought I had the whole world

Wrapped up in my hands I wish someone had told me

You're gonna pay for all your sins

You can take a couple of rounds

You can take a couple of rounds

You may take a couple of rounds

But the house whoh oh the house always wins
