Play your cards right

It could have been so different.
It should have been so different.
My heart knows it. My soul believes it.
It is nothing but a solemn truth.

If only the world had been different.
If only we had been different.
They knew it. We never believed it.
But it was always an undeniable truth.

If only it had been a different time. A different place.
If only we’d have different names or found ourselves in a different age.
There could have been a different truth.

Yet you can’t always play that winning hand.
And there’s definitely no winning it all.
When you’re holding the winning cards….
To a different game.

  1. Roaring twenties! I love, love this song. We’re easily forgiven for mistakes made in our twenties. Oh, the twenties: discoveries, loves at first sight, growth, pain, forgiveness, everlasting friendships, and so on. 😉

    Thank for this reminder to appreciate the games I have one…and put the ones I’ve lost in the past.
