Lyrics

Ante Up

Written By: LaRiccia

There’s more here than eyes can see
There’s so much more that we can be
Just calculate the risks and start to play

It’s not that I’m a gambling man
But I’ve come to understand
It’s more the things you do than what you say

What we try to save we lose
And what we freely give and choose
May always be a treasured memory

Moth and rust may spoil toys
But nothing ever steals our joy(s)
When faith and hope secure eternity

ANTE UP! ANTE UP!
Take it to the top and don’t let up
There’s nothing left to lose if we don’t play
ANTE UP! ANTE UP!
It’s the feeling that you get when you’re up
Lay back and let the cards fall where they may (and ante up)

It’s okay if when I die
I always did my best and tried
‘Cause in the end it’s how the race was run

Nothing else has ever pleased me
Only tried to tempt and tease me
No more holding out for “Number One”

CHORUS-REFRAIN

So why do I sit back here, watching time go by each year
So much more that I would rather be
If I don’t move myself I know, there wont be much for me to show
Its do or lie, now’s the time to go

You Believed In Me!

Written By: LaRiccia-Robison-Seifert

Standing at the crossroad
Lookin’ back I see
All along this rocky pathway
You were there for me

And everything I am
And everything I do
I can make a stand
And it’s all because of you

‘Cause you believed in me
You helped me find my dream
You gave me faith and hope along the way
In everything I do
I will remember you
‘Cause you believed in me
Now I believe in me today

You showed me heaven
When my life was hell
Lord knows I ain’t been easy
You helped me up
Every time I fell
And always tried to please me
You’re all the songs I’ve written
And every good thing said
You’re the eyes I see my life through
And the voice inside my head

‘Cause you believed in me
You helped me find my dream
You gave me faith and hope along the way
In everything I do
I will remember you
‘Cause you believed in me
Now I believe in me

When my world was spinning all wrong
And I couldn’t tell up from down
You reached inside of me
Brought out the best in me
And turned it all around

‘Cause you believed in me
You helped me find my dream
You gave me faith and hope along the way
In everything I do
I will remember you
‘Cause you believed in me
Now I believe in me today
You believed in me

No Date For The Prom

Written By: LaRiccia

Every time I turn around
Something knocks me to the ground

Two young fools on a makeshift ride
Race down a flooding river
Disaster strikes, and they both go in
Only a prayer could deliver, yeah

One swims free to a muddy shore
The other is trapped under water
Last breath gone as his life flashes by
Alone with God in his sorrow

Darkness swirling all around
Spiraling down life’s funnel
Just when I think I will let me drown
There’s a light at the end of this tunnel

But life goes on and on and on and on
And all I want to do is go home
It drags on and on and on and on
And still I’ve got no date for the prom

Well, who’s driving the car
That’s out of control
If I open my eyes I might see
How come I feel so, so chained to the wheel
And cannot bring myself to break free

When I had nothing I thought I had it all
If only I could find my way back
And the road runs on but only one-way
Faster and faster, then ends one day
So why even try, only to fall behind?

Do not go gently into that goodnight
And do not go empty into that white light
