Loser’s Choice

Loser’s Choice

Can you hear a word I’m saying
Do you see all these tears I cry
Can’t you see the cards I’m playing
I’m losing and I don’t know why

You say you don’t want to get hurt
Well you know I’ve been hurt some too
It takes two hearts to make love work
And darling you know I love you

Chorus:
But all my love won’t be enough
If you keep all your cards in your hand
There are so many rules to this game
That I don’t understand
I’m trying to hold the queen of hearts
But it’s a hard game to enjoy
When we keep doing the same old thing
We’re playing loser’s choice

I remember when we first met
I thought we were falling in love
Our future was such a sure bet
But you won’t even ante up

So we keep dealing the same cards
Again and again and again
If we keep making it so hard
Chances are we won’t ever win

Bridge:
Why can’t I get past your poker face
I look for love and I don’t see a trace
I keep drawing to an inside straight
The odds are long but it’s a chance I’ll take

Chorus:
But all my love won’t be enough
If you keep all your cards in your hand
There are so many rules to this game
That I don’t understand
I’m trying to hold the queen of hearts
But it’s a hard game to enjoy
When we keep doing the same old thing
We’re playing loser’s choice
