The Angel And The Gambler – Iron Maiden

Roll of the dice, take a spin of the wheel
Out of your hands now, so how do you feel
But you’re not gonna win, you’d better go back again
Do you feel lucky or do you feel scared
Take what luck brings and be devil may care
But you’re down on your luck and what will the next day bring

Adrift on the ocean, afloat in a daydream
Or lost in a maze, or blind in the haze
So what does it matter, so why don’t you answer
So why did you send an angel to mend

Best make decisions before it’s too late
Take all your chances take hold of the reins
A roll of the dice, ahead of the game again

Nothing to lose but so much to gain
A little danger, it goes without saying
But what do you care, you’re gonna go in the end

Gate open to heaven is ready and waiting
Or straight down to hell, can go there as well
I’ll suffer my craving, my soul’s not worth saving
So why don’t you go, just leave well alone

Don’t you think I’m the saviour
Don’t you think I could save you
Don’t you think I could save your life
(5:35-Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:59-Solo: Janick Gers)

There’s like a hunger that knocks on your door
You’ve had a taste of it, still you want more
You’ve made your mistakes, won’t play it the same again

You have been warned but still you plunge in
You play high stakes but there’s nothing to win
You’ve only one life and so many things to learn

The Angel on one side, the Devil the other
