Used to be when I was thirteen
Mom and dad earth and sky under God
There was ground beneath my feet

The center of your youth
Was you always knew the truth
Till the door was left ajar and the wind
The wind blew in the fog

Somehow we all got lost
Trying drive in the dark
With the lights left off so they donít what you do
And you said it was all brand new

But would you bet your life
What would you bet your life on
Would you bet your life
What would you bet your life on

Iíve watched you fade away
Iíve seen you somehow change
And what is this empty stage
Where the clouds have turned to gray

What did you hope to find
What are you hiding between the lines

And why canít you mean what you say
It was good back then it didnít have to change
Why you let a man speak his mind
Unless that man believes in God

But would you bet your life
What would you bet your life on
Would you bet your life
What would you bet your life on
