Safe Bet, No Regret

Life is a game of chance
You can play it safe  
Or play fast and loose
You can cheat death,  
But you can't just walk away
Because he's going to make you play
Until he wins
And when he wins
He takes it all
When that happens,
Even though you've lost the game,
You better hope
You've bet on the right horse
 
Some look back on life
And say they have no regrets
Well, they are lying
Everyone has things
They wished they'd done
Or should have done
Hopes that never came true
There are always things they
Wish didn't happen
Those little twists of fate
Ya see, the truth is
Nobody lives a perfect life
And life's a funny game
So, always keep the end in sight
Before you place your next bet
Before you make your next move
