I've had a song banging around in my head for awhile, and finally this weekend I took the time to get a very rough draft out. When it comes to love, everything is a gamble. So, enjoy!

Welcome to Musical Monday, where I feature an original song just for the heck of it. Want to hear more? Check out my previous musical posts, Time - And Brain Chemistry - Heal All WoundsBiochemically, All Is Fair, and Taking Einstein's Advice, and previous Musical Mondays Stay Near Me and As Hard As It Is.

Gambler You believe you are an island You are forever alone Waves of regret and isolation come ashore, ashore, ashore Walls of your creation surround you By showing no weakness, you feel strong You think you cannot be happy but you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong You play the game with an ace up your sleeve, so scared of losing you don't care who you beat, but you'll never win no matter how much you cheat, cuz you keep your cards to your chest, and fold when she bets Over time the fog has lifted There are clear skies overhead but you hide in your darkness my friend, my friend, my friend You choose the path of most resistance It's the only path you know But all you need is to give in to let go, let go, let go Still you play the game with an ace up your sleeve, so scared of losing you don't care who you beat, but you'll never win no matter how much you cheat, cuz you keep your cards to your chest, and fold when she bets Just close your eyes Imagine a world where you don't have to lie Where you put your heart on the line Broken and bleeding, it's still whole I know, I know, I know You were not ready when I met you Our dead love rests in peace But I won't be the last to believe in you you'll see, you'll see, you'll see Just lay the cards on the table Don't count the chips in the end You don't have to be an island You don't have pretend Love is worth the gamble Oh my friend, my friend, my friend
