lyrics

Full Moon Over Vegas

Three a.m. in the Mojave,
Lonely desert drive,
If I double down and hit the gas,
Should make the Strip by five;
This heart ain’t had good fortune,
Trashed the love it found,
But a full moon over Vegas
Says I’ll turn it all around.

There’s a full moon over Vegas
Lighting up the night,
Gambler’s lucky omen,
God’s own neon sign;
Come on down and play your hand,
Put it all on one last bet,
The highest jackpot winner
Or the biggest loser yet.

It was just a chance encounter,
Pure fate we met that night,
A winning streak that lasted
Long enough to change my life;
But luck don’t last forever,
Bad bets can turn things round—
In the time it took to roll the dice,
My world came tumbling down.

But there’s a full moon over Vegas
Lighting up the night,
Gambler’s lucky omen,
God’s own neon sign;
Come on down and play your hand,
Put it all on one last bet,
The highest jackpot winner
Or the biggest loser yet.

Couldn’t bear to stick around
When everything went wrong;
The odds weren’t in my favour,
Felt like time to just move on.

But my heart can’t seem to call it quits,
That face won’t leave my mind,
So I’m driving back to Vegas
In a desperate bid tonight;
Don’t know if I’ll be welcomed
Or shown the slamming door—
If I could tell the future,
I’d be a millionaire for sure.

But there’s a full moon over Vegas
Lighting up the night,
Gambler’s lucky omen,
God’s own neon sign;
Come on down and play your hand,
Put it all on one last bet,
The highest jackpot winner
Or the biggest loser yet.

There’s a full moon over Vegas…
