Week #9 Love To Lose

Life is a poker game. We take chances, bet it all, climb in too deep, look for the big pay day, bluff our way through things we hope none will see, and even keep quiet about some of the great things waiting for the moment to strike. 

I am not an avid poker player…in fact in my life I have played the game less than 10 times…but in my exploration into the minds of those who have made it to the world series, or the great stake tables of smoky rooms…i applaud the skill it takes and the many vast player types who seem to climb to the top. It takes serious balls to bet everything you have on a pair of sevens when their is an ace in the flop…but game after game, tides are turned by just such a thing.

I spent a great deal of time composing the lyrics to this one. Have a look at the references and homage to a game that has changed the lives of so many people.

LOVE TO LOSE (lyrics)

The action on the table is tough
sitting with a king a queen and I’m waiting on the flop
Fingers all pointed at the fish…me
Pulling bad cards, running out of chips
And my eyes keep drifting to the cage, 
Working out a way…fast, 
to get a little back
Take a breath and I let it out 
Pour a drink and I shoot it down

Chorus: Love To lose….Take me to the bank, throw me in the river
Love to lose…Holding on to One of a kind
Love to lose…Going all in and Try to pull the trigger
And the bigger the pot, the quicker I got, To shoot for the top but right here right now I love to lose.

10 a 7 and a jack come up just like that im back in the game of luck
looking for a straight flush, keep a straight face hush,
Sit still and I feel the adrenaline rush 
I wait, until i get the turn, 
everybody checks, while the dealer throws the burn card down
Up comes a five, I raise it a dime.

Chorus: Love To lose….Take me to the bank, throw me in the river Love to lose…Holding on to One of a kind Love to lose…Going all in and Try to pull the trigger And the bigger the pot, the quicker I got, To shoot for the top but right here right now I love to lose.

Bridge: When you lose… You gotta pay more than good intentions WHen you lose… You gotta take what the bad hands out When you lose…well its hard with the mounting tension But you cant give in, you cant give up you can’t get out till you’ve had enough

Verse: the eyes they fix, on the tells and tricks, Tapping on the glass with my fingertips
counting on the last card, playing with a fast heart
someones lifes gonna change real quick
And the card it comes, it flips and falls, for a second the mechanism trips and pauses
I look around, i take a minute, make em think…is he still in it I fight to hide the smile on my face in go my chips down goes the ace.
