lyrics

I gambled once on Moses
On dreams and faded roses
On diamond studded rings made out of tin
While others saved their money
I gave mine to my honey
If I had the chance I’d do it all again

This world’s a burning candle and we are only matches
It makes no difference if we lose or win
But the rain will fall in patterns in rings around your lover
While your lover throws her caution to the wind

There’s a road you’ve come to know
And a road that you’ve not followed
Either way you go you got to move along
If you lose all that you own on account of how you wander
Just remember, you had much but now it’s gone

This world’s a burning candle and we are only matches
It makes no difference if we lose or win
But the rain will fall in patterns in rings around your lover
While your lover throws her caution to the wind

Now, you can keep the diamonds
And I will keep the roses
I’ve got the queen of hearts on my left arm
And the reaper’s on my right
And the Devil’s on my shoulder
In a ring of fire to keep me safe from harm

This world’s a burning candle and we are only matches
It makes no difference if we lose or win
But the rain will fall in patterns in rings around your lover
While your lover throws her caution to the wind
