    everytime the ball drops

    Dear all,
    What is the meaning of "every time the ball drops" in this song... it's in the same episode.
    YouTube - ‪Read Between The Lines- Cold Case Entire Song!!!‬‏

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: everytime the ball drops

    It's an allusion to the gambling game of Roulette, where a ball drops randomly in some location with a colour and a number. The meaning is: every time my address changed to a new foster home.
