Living Today   O'Reilly

 

 You can quit while you’re winning

 

The wheel’s still a-spinning

 

You can take your chips and calmly walk away

 

You don’t have to play

 

At the last intersection you changed your direction

 

But you’ve still got the feeling

 

That perhaps you made a mistake

 

That’s a risk you take

 

 

You’ve got your head full of plans for the future

 

And a heart full of wounds from the past

 

Your walking round in a world of confusion

 

‘Staid of livin’ today

 

 

 

You set your sights on a hard-hearted woman

 

But she turns her head when she sees you coming along

 

Seems you got it wrong

 

And all you need is a sweet little girl

 

To change everything in your world

 

But oh, no! That’s not how it goes!

 

 

You can count your blessings

 

Or just sit guessing

 

What in the world is gonna happen to you?

 

What ya gonna do?

 

Is it a matter of chance or just a matter of luck

 

Or did something, somehow just get stuck in my way?

 

Is that all you can say?
