When You Throw Away A Winning Hand


The Jack Of Diamonds,

and the Queen Of Hearts;

They share a love that quits,

before it even starts.

And this is a story,

of a lover's great demand.

"When You Throw Away A Winning Hand"


You may think,

you've got your ducks all in a row.

But life is run just by the cards that you throw.

So when you quit a heart that loves you,

will you be strong enough to stand,

When you throw away a winning hand.


They say that in this game we play,

"That the truth is in the lies,

it's how you never show your face. 

And hide what's in your eyes."

But you left me like a stranger in some God forsaken land,

When you threw away a winning hand.


Well I miss your little china face.

and your picture perfect skin.

But I know love is just a game,

and only one of us can win.

So I'm packing my things.

Anyway I can.

And I'm gonna through away a winning hand.
