"Love is a losing game"
For you I (be) a flame����������������������������

Love is a losing game

Five story fire as you (come)

Why do I wish I never (play)

Oh, what a mess we (make)

And now the final frame

Love is a losing game

(play) out by the band

Love is a losing hand
More than I (can) stand


Love is a losing hand
Self professed... profound

Till the chips (be) down

...know you're a gambling man

Love is a losing hand

Though I'd rather blind

Love is a fate resigned

Memories mar mymind

������ Love is a fate resigned
Over futile odds

And (laugh) at by the gods

And now the final frame

Love is a losing game
