I play the cards which I was dealt
in this game of solitaire,
but it seems I am a few cards
shy of a full deck there.

I play the only one I know;
I play the only one I can.
It seems I am a few cards
shy of a winning hand.

I am a few cards shy in my deck
and i never seem to win;
reshuffle, redeal, replay
it's all the same again.

So tell me if you can tell me,
I still want to believe,
Do you have the cards to complete
the deck of solitaire me?

I really should stop this game
and put them back in their slip,
store them once again with my shame
this life a momentary blip;

but I'm not ready to give in
or to give up this fight.
So let's deal another hand,
I'll play right through the night.

I am a few cards shy in my deck
and I never seem to win;
reshuffle, redeal, replay
it's all the same again.

So tell me if you can tell me,
I still want to believe,
Do you have the cards to complete
the deck of solitaire me?

ain't it always that way though? aren't we all involved in the game of life, where fate deals the cards? I really liked this, it got me thinking and I'm a blonde it's really hard to get me thinking
hunnie.

If I answered, "yes", then that would reduce you to a "game"--and you, my sweet brother, are so much more than that.

Now I know why I headed for sanctuary...
to find like thinkers, and a good read.

I had your video running "almost" in sync with this Ali, weird, really weird - but in a good way.

By the way, how's about a new photo to show the young girls how cute you really are there lad?

Thank you all for the responses.  I am deeply flattered.  To repay [sic] the kindness, here's a recent pic of me.  Note the timestamp.
