Either Way We Win Or Lose

from BETWEEN US, Vol. 1: YOU by Stephen Bard



Started up this conversation centuries ago
Now somehow continuing despite more ebb than flow
I know you love me more than even I could ever know
Even so I still get the blues
So lately I've been feeling like I'm living on the edge of a knife
Never thought I'd be a fool for anyone let alone my wife
The pinch is that without her I don't see much point in life
Either way we win or lose

When I was young I never ever thought it come to this
Nightly on the precipice above the abyss
Discovering unloving truths inside a liar's kiss
This I'd skip if I could choose
And the trader's round the corner holding tight on to the rod
Things got so way out of hand they had to call the Brute Squad
He says, "I'm just the way God made me
And I don't even believe in God..."
Either way we win or lose

Pulled my head out of the oven
Pushed the gun aside
Thought for just one moment
What would happen if I died?
Everybody knows it's tough
With everything we're given
It'll all be over soon enough
Might as well keep living

Either way we win or lose

Faith is like a trash can on the curb without a lid
And the student believes more than the teacher ever did
Banging on the board behind which everything is hidden
Then again, this isn't news
So lately I've been trying to maybe better comprehend
Why the game takes such a toll
And how a soul might still ascend
Even in the faces of the fact you can't pretend
Things you've done ain't left a bruise
'Cause I know the things I've done
And I've a feeling you can see
Up their with your son who holds the key supposedly
Maybe I'll do better but the end reality
is either way
Either way we win or lose
