Intro: C

Verse 1:
C        Dm7            F         Cmaj7
 For you I was a flame; love is a losing game.
C                Dm7          F         Cmaj7
 Five story fire as you came; love is a losing game.

Chorus:
Em7           Dm7           F         Cmaj7
 One I wish I never played; oh what a mess we made.
C            Dm7          F         Cmaj7
 And now the final frame; love is a losing game.

Interlude: C

Verse 2:
C           Dm7          F         Cmaj7
 Played out by the band; love is a losing hand.
C          Dm7            F         Cmaj7
 More than I could stand; love is a losing hand.

Chorus:
Em7              Dm7       F              Cmaj7
 Self professed, profund; 'till the chips were down.
C              Dm7           F                Cmaj7
 Know you’re a gambling man; love is a losing hand.

Interlude: C

Verse 3:
C           Dm7           F         Cmaj7
 Though I'm rather blind; love is a fate resigned.
C         Dm7          F         Cmaj7
 Memories mar my mind; love is a fate resigned.

Chorus:
Em7   Dm7         F              Cmaj7
 Over futile odds and laughed at by the gods.
C            Dm7          F         Cmaj7
 And now the final frame; love is a losing game.
