Casino
Written by: Natalie Hemby and Morgan Hayes

Nashville Scene: Scarlett and Gunnar play the song with Jason over a montage of Rayna and Teddy telling the girls about the divorce, Avery receiving his publishing check, and Juliette inviting her mom to live with her.


Like a coin
I was tossed into a wishing fountain

I was only one of a thousand

Looking for a little fortune
And you, you picked me up and put me into your pocket

Nothing I could do to stop it


It started off full of promise
The shimmer of the shine that I’d never seen before
The bright lights, I was taken in by the spotlight

Coming from the stare of your wanting eyes,
like a Vegas green low
Yeah, grasping, wishing I could roll the dice again.
You can always love, but you can’t win
A heart is like no money you blow
Casino

Worthless, I didn’t even know I was losing
But I was just a card you were using
A trick that you were good at playing
Oh and luck, didn’t built up the Monte Carlo
Just like love never promised tomorrow
You are only looking to borrow

And I thought that I had a chance but I gave it away to
The bright lights, I was taken in by the spotlight
Coming from the stare of your wanting eyes,
like a Vegas green low

Oh, grasping, wishing I could roll the dice again
You can always love but you can’t win
A heart is like the money you blow
Casino

The bright lights, I was taken in by the spotlight
Coming from the stare of your wanting eyes,
like a Vegas green low
Oh, grasping, wishing I could roll the dice
again

You can always love but you can’t win
A heart is like the money you blow
Casino
