about

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for a situation is not be part of it anymore. When your presence only hurts you, others, or the situation, why go there? In Blackjack, you have to play it cool and "stay" to win. Love is a gamble. Sometimes, the only way to stay is leave.

lyrics

When the day turns to dust,
In your hand,
Where a dusty, old, Lone Ranger sky,
Lights a kingdomless land,
You’ve been trying for so long now,
To deliver your best,
But she don’t see the heart,
Of a man in your chest.
No.

Oh, you scream inside,
As she cries...
But you saw the way she looked at him,
Through the hurt in your eyes.
And now you’re finding as you say goodbye,
To the best thing you know,
That the hardest part of holding on,
Is letting go.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On your sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay is leave.

Now the smile on your face,
Ain’t quite like before.
Cause the reason it was always there,
Ain’t around anymore.
And it’s funny how your mind’s eye,
Looks a little like rain,
Cause you know you were right...
But you can’t stop the pain.

And so, your teardrops fall,
In the night,
From a broken heart that once was,
So unburdened and bright.
And you’re learning as the days go by,
That a life led alone,
Is a lot like being homeward bound,
When no one’s home.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On your sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay is...

Leave it all behind and walk away.
Just as long as you hold onto,
The joy from that day,
When you were up so high,
You shamed the sky,
Cause a pretty little angel,
Showed you how to fly.
And she’ll never take that away.

Jack loves Jill. Jill loves Bradley.
Brad wants Britt. Britt’s with Hadley.
Hadley’s still stuck on Ashley...
Love is a gamble.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On a sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay...

Is everybody gambling,
With another person’s heat?
Has the game become impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat?
You’re dying...always die trying,
On your sunset steed!

Sometimes, the only way to stay,
Is knowing you were strong enough to walk away,
(You were cool enough to play.)
Sometimes, the only way to stay is...
