“The Gambler” is a cute love song that is written from the perspective of an old man looking back at the life he has shared with his love. I’m sure many couples feel the same way as how the man does when he describes their relationship. Not many cute love songs are sung in that perspective, but it is interesting to think about how that could be you in the future.
We were barely 18 when we’d crossed collective hearts.
It was cold, but it got warm when you’d barely crossed my eye.
and then you turned, put out your hand,
and you asked me to dance.
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.
