So Much for Losin’

© Words and music by Ray Scudero. All rights reserved.

Well, it’s been too long a day with too much to lose,
I’ve got my back to the wall but it’s nothing new,
Trying one more time to keep the wolves away from the door.
Well, there once was a time when I wouldn’t have cared,
But my time’s running out and I’m getting scared,
When a man can’t do what a man’s gotta do anymore.

(Chorus:)

And it’s getting so I can’t tell the night from day,
And as the time goes by I see my chances slippin’ away.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.

Well, I’m damned if I don’t and half-dead if I do,
My candle burns both ends and the middle too
To get the job done; I’ll do it right if I can.
Well, I’m playing for time but I’m out of tune,
There’s a piper to pay and he’s coming soon,
There’s no telling how I’m going to make it to the morning again.

And it’s getting so I can’t tell the night from day,
And as the time goes by I see my chances slippin’ away.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.

Well, I’ve seen hard times, I’ve been down before,
But I’ve never been swimming so far from shore,
Treading water and leaving the boat behind.
It’s like a desert highway, no trucks in sight;
The tunnel’s too long and there ain’t no light,
I’m out of matches and halfway out of my mind.

And it’s getting so I can’t tell the night from day,
And as the time goes by I see my chances slippin’ away.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.
So much for losin’, so much to lose.
