lyrics

VERSE
You lay down your hand
with a certain command
that makes me feel things
I don't understand

You keep an eye on the band
And play with reckless abandon
You cradle your cards
And then you slam them

No one seems
To know what to do with me
But everyone's leaving the table
And the seat next to you's free

VERSE
Sure there are rules
And stats tried and true
But they're not meant for me
and I don't think they're for you

There's a hidden veneer
I've seen before in the mirror
That you don't seem to
Know what to do with

If you're already in the game
Why not go all in
If you know what you're doing
Why not play to win

CHORUS
'Cause everything is a gamble
No one knows for sure
I once thought I did
but that was a bad beat that ended poorly

And you may not know what to think yet
of this fortuitous rendezvous
But I'm throwing all my chips in
And I'm betting them all on you

BRIDGE
You can play it safe
You can fold
You can walk away
And just get old
Not having risked to much
But the pot you clutch
Won't buy a tank of gas

But do you know
Do you know what you have to do
To play the long game
To really see it through
Will you pony up
Even if you lose the cup?
Do you have the brass?

VERSE
Everybody' playing it safe
And living in the grey
And I'm walking away
So what do you say?
