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.
