Electric Light Orchestra Poker Lyrics

Last updated: 07/12/2007 11:00:00 AM

Away, the jokers's closing in,
Reform and they will win,
The light is fading fast.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

The girls come crawling on all fours,
Banging on locked doors,
High cards call the tune.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

Play me another hand,
Loose everything I am,
Until we meet again.

The ace, that's hiding up your sleeve,
Will cause the world to grieve,
The love you had is gone,
I know you know, they know, we all know.

The dream, in every player's heart,
To win it all not part,
They lie awake at night,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

The game, where gamblers rule the night,
And get your blood they might,
The joker's closin' in,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

I love this song. It's actually intended to be spiritually enlightening or "helpful", I believe. The whole point relates to illicit drug addiction and the inherently unreasonable risks which much be assumed on a continuous basis to quench that desire, which is far beyond the control of the individual...

An amazing song. It combines excellant music with some of those slightly out there lyrics, that only make sense to those who wrote them. This song has that groove that no matter what the lyrics say it puts a feeling inside you that makes you want to listen to it over and over. That combination of cords steps and extraordinary rythm that laces your mind and body like a strange musical .
