You win some you lose some

 

I wish that I could take you for a breath of fresh air

I would walk you to the beach to listen to the sound of roaring waves

The smell of the sea breeze, feel the wind play with your hair

We could have a glass of whisky, to end the day

Your head is still above water, little wrinkles on your face

You’re looking very fragile, we just have to have faith

You win some you lose some you lose some you lose some

I wish that you could bring me back to nice times in the past

You could take me to the harbour, listen to the sound of screaming gulls

The smell of the fishingboats, feel the cold rain on our face

We’d have another whisky, in a haze

My head is still above water, a little wrinkle on my face

I’m feeling very fragile, but I’m keeping the faith

You win some you lose some ….

I wish we’d watch the sun set see the sky turn red

Drive home to our old house and not your hospital bed

To the smell of a nice meal cooking, feel the heat come from the fire

We’ll have another whisky, and retire

Our heads are still above water, little wrinkles on our face

We’re feeling fragile  ..

You win some you lose some …
