You always won everytime you placed a bet
You're still damn good
No one's gotten to you yet
Everytime they were sure they had you caught
You were quicker than they thought
You'd just turn your back and walk

You always said
The cards would never do you wrong
The trick you said
Was never play the game too long
A gambler's share
The only risk that you would take
The only loss you could forsake
The only bluff you couldn't fake

And you're still the same
I caught up with you yesterday
Moving game to game
No one standing in your way
Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by
You're still the same
You still aim high

There you stood
Everybody watched you play
I just turned and walked away
I had nothing left to say
'Cause you're still the same
You're still the same
Moving game to game
Some things never change
You're still the same

    For me, it has always been about relationships. The game is a relationship and she never sticks around to commit to anyone. She won't risk getting hurt, so she goes from game to game or relationship to relationship. A gambler share is the only risk, meaning she is only in it to have fun. He was one of her quick in and out relationships and he sees that she is still the same. Moving from game to game, no one gotten to you yet. She hasn't settled down with anyone. He sees she won't change.

    That though I may seem not to be playing with a full deck - ("Counting Flowers on the Wall": "watching "Captain Kangaroo") - the "missing card" is really an "ACE" with "wings"? For me it's a Spiritual meaning. GOD was with me - from game to game ... situation to situation. I bet on GOD every time. People thought me to be 99% nuts. 2010 Kentucky Derby : The "question" of Sovereignty was Answered!!! (#4 = "FOUR WINDS"). I bet my heart on GOD every time! Thanks, Bob, for the music. Shall the singers/musicians go forth first?
