The cards shuffled over your skin
 
There is sadness where joy had once been
 
Through the veil of smoke and vapor
 
Jade eyes still full of anger
 
Mad at the world for the hand you were dealt
 
Saving every bet to feel what you once felt
 
One more hand it will be good this time
 
You folded you cards and spent every dime
 
It's time for you to pack up and come home
 
You've been sitting at an empty table for years, all alone.
