A post from three years ago — it popped up (again!) in my Facebook feed. I think it’s even more appropriate now.
We Are All The Gambler
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done.
It’s a precarious ledge we stand on, isn’t it?
Do you know when to hold your ground? When to give in?
When to walk away? When to Run?
It’s not as easy as it seems, is it?
We want to run away, we want to stay and fight.
We say it’s not worth it, yet sometimes it’s all there is.
Pick your battles.
Fight the fights worth fighting for.
Blow off the rest.
A stay in a hospital isn’t worth it.
Nor is a broken soul.
Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
‘Cause every hand’s a winner
And every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for
Is to die in your sleep.

Poets of the Fall, are a Finnish group, and their songs are mostly lyrical ballads… I been following them for years.. I suppose I saw the name first, wow.. they are good… 😊😀
You always come up with the most amazing music and lyrics. I’ve never heard of most of your recommendations but they are all so perfect for what I need at the time. Thank you!
Oh, thank you again!

Tonight I turn over a new page in my writing notebook, and in the morning a bright sun will rise again…
