the last thing that i want to do right now
is scream one more line
about the words that fall from your mouth
landing somewhere just short of my feet
some long, sad, boring list of let downs
that i have talked about a thousand times before

some spark i thought i saw in you
needed to see in you
wished i could see in you
but was just a real damn bluff

i threw away aces and you showed me deuces
the key is having the guts to raise with
the second highest hand

i have spent so much time
folding bad cards and eating my words
i've said some awful things to some real good people
that i no longer have a problem admitting when i am wrong
and can just sit back and wait for the next deal to come
and if the worst thing in my life
is long-ass rides and hug filled good-byes
and i can still be mystified
by pretty smiles, crushes and mix tapes
then i guess things really aren't so bad

and i have never known much about silver linings
but i can look around this van and see
five faces that breath life into me
kings over jacks
splash my chips across the table
take my shot
i'm all in

    General Commenti think this song is about risking it all to pursue what you truly want to do and to ignore what everyone else says you should be

    General Commentthis song is about not letting life's setbacks pull you down, but go for broke and don't give up after failure but keep on pushing to get the most from your time.
