Losing
words and music by Jackson Rohm

We met at a Mexican bar
Drinking Corona under the stars
The touch of her skin, fire in her eyes
I didn’t sleep a wink
For three night, held her close
When you’re on vacation, everyone knows
Anything goes

And I would do whatever it takes
Bend the rules, ‘til they break
Try to hold on
But she slowly faded away
And all my cards had been played
It was then that I knew
Someone always has to lose

No concept of right or wrong
Caught up in that siren’s song
She drew me in just to push me away
And I’ve been here a time or two
I swear that I’ve been cursed
I hoped for the best, braced for the worst
Then that bubble burst

And I would do whatever it takes
Bend the rules, ‘til they break
Try to hold on
But she slowly faded away
And all my cards had been played
It was then that I knew
Someone always has to lose

I tried to be honest, she tried to be kind
I lied to myself, content to be blind
‘Til it came down to five words I couldn’t ignore
“I don’t want you anymore”

And I would do whatever it takes
Bend the rules, ‘til they break
Try to hold on
But she slowly faded away
And all my cards had been played
It was then that I knew
Someone always has to lose
