“You Gambled On Us”

Lyrics and Music by Sheva Lipsker (Class of 2018)

 

You set the board, You dealt the cards

You know my colors, my coat of arms

We played by your rules, Your faithful little fools

We play your way

 

I take my turn, you stay in place

No closer to your faceless face

With free will I’m told, I can call, I can fold

What’s the aim to you

                  

The more I understand here, the less I seem to know

What’s ten thousand pennies in a currency unknown

All I know is

 

You could’ve had oceans but you chose one drop

You could’ve had mountains but you chose a small rock

You could’ve played with angels

But you gambled on us, You gambled on us

 

With open arms I used to pray

For a perfect hand to guide my way

What’s it all worth without time, without work

What’s you and I

 

The more I understand here, the less I seem to know

What’s ten thousand pennies in a currency unknown

All I know is

You could’ve had oceans but you chose one drop

You could’ve had mountains but you chose a small rock

You could’ve played with angels

 But you gambled on us, You gambled on us

 

When the round is up

And our cards are left open-faced

I see Your hand reflecting back at mine

When the round is up

And our cards are left open faced                 

You made you call and now I’ve made my choice

 

You could’ve had oceans but you chose one drop

You could’ve had mountains but you chose a small rock

You could’ve played with angels

 But you gambled on us, You gambled on us
