Mike Waters – Gambling Man Lyrics:
Sometimes I need to think before I speak.
I’ve made some mistakes with you this week.
Call me out if I’ve done something wrong.
I’m not used to love that lasts this long.

Sometimes I need to sink before I swim.
I’m not really built for the world I’m in.
I don’t live my life thought out and planned.
End up in situations I don’t understand.

I’m a liar and I’m a thief,
I stole glances while you believed
that I don’t think myself a gambling man,
but I take chances every now and then.

Sometimes I need a drink before I sleep.
I can’t keep my mind from running deep.
I’ve a lot of secrets I can’t share.
Please don’t stay away, please don’t be scared.

I’m a liar and I’m a thief,
I stole glances while you believed
that I don’t think myself a gambling man,
but I take chances every now and then.

And although it seems clear,
people that know me well will tell you
I have always seemed so insincere.

I’m a liar and I’m a thief,
I stole glances while you believed
that I don’t think myself a gambling man,
but I take chances every now and then.

I’m a liar and I’m a thief,
I stole glances while you believed
that I don’t think myself a gambling man,
but I take chances every now and then.

I’m a liar, ooh. I’m a liar, ooh.
I’m a liar, ooh. I’m a liar, and I’m a thief.
