~ too happy for my own good ~

this week I have been happier than a college student at this time of year should be. it's a combination of a lot of things, I guess, but it's actaully surprising to be this light-hearted in the midts of paper writing and exam preparations, even for me...

in my happiness I wrote this little song... last week sometime...

(there is music to it, but I can't really give you that part in this post)
(it's kind of a jazzy little number, lots of 7 chords, if you care to know...)

if i play my cards right
i'll take you home, if you're lucky
but i don't think that's too likely

you see my poker face
just ain't what it used to be
and i don't win much these days
unfortunately

but i think we both know
that you're already mine
and that this game is just for fun
and i think we both know
that i'm already yours
and that we've already won

but i think with a little luck
and a prayer to up above
we'll be going home together

and no one will have to know
the secret that i withhold:
i've never played a game of poker in my life

but i think we both know
that you're already mine
and that this game is just for fun
and i think we both know
that i'm already yours
and that we've already won

I was happy to catch one of the first renditions of this song while i was at your house on thursday and I quite liked it. But then again, I 'quite like' pretty much every song you write. Soon you'll have record your songs and post them on your blog. THEN you'll be really cool.
