1.  Every day I lose someone who was part of my life.

And my heart is gripped by a hand made of ice.

‘Cos when all’s said and done, it’s just a throw of the dice.



2.  My appointment with my maker is coming into sight.

It’s funny and hopeless how we all put up a fight.

When our exact place in the line is just a throw of the dice.



3.  And all I’ve got is memories of the days I spent before,

Back when my life was simple and I never needed more.

I don’t know how I wandered so many miles from the shore.



4.  Well, you make it all, then lose it all; there’s always a price.

Try and keep hold of what is real, if you take my advice.

Don’t make too many plans; it’s just a throw of the dice.



And fate can be so unkind when she throws the dice…

There’s no reason or rhyme, just a throw of the dice…

And you can’t choose your time … it’s just a throw of the dice.
