Mainly a song about how life shouldn't be trifled with... and it's a song about a girl.


She could’ve had the world but she lost it in a card game
Baby you should know by now you can’t win with a losing hand
Like it or not it’s all gonna end the same
And winning alone it don’t make your man

Since you’ve been gone and I’ve been here
I ain’t missing you no more my dear
Don’t know much, how hard, or why I tried
Win or lose it’s all gonna end the same
Baby you should know by now that life aint a game

You might say that I’ve spent my life dodging bullets
Metaphorically speaking I’ve seen more than my share
Like it or not they all land right where they’re meant for
After I pulled myself right out of thin air
