I Bet My Life

For 50 years, Valley Beth Shalom has published poetry, stories and mediations. sometimes we include popular song lyrics. Here’s one of my favorites by Imagine Dragons

“I Bet My Life”-Ben McKee, Daniel Platzman, Dan Reynolds, Wayne Sermon- 2014

I know I took the path that you would never want for me

I know I let you down, didn’t I?

So many sleepless nights

Where you were waiting up on me

Well I’m just a slave unto the night

Now remember when I told you that’s the last you’ll see of me

Remember when I broke you down to tears

I know I took the path that you would never want for me

I gave you hell through all the years

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you

I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you

I’ve been around the world but never in my wildest dreams

Would I come running home to you

I’ve told a million lies

But now I tell a single truth

There’s you in everything I do

Now remember when I told you that’s the last you’ll see of me

Remember when I broke you down to tears

I know I took the path that you would never want for me

I gave you hell through all the years

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you

I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you

Don’t tell me that I’m wrong

I’ve walked that road before

I left you on your own

And please believe them when they say

That it’s left for yesterday

And the records that I’ve played

Please forgive me for all I’ve done

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you

I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life on you
