  • I know that it's true sometimes life's hard
    It's touch or it's go at the turn of the heart
    Somehow love survives the only way it can
    Well, it's not the cards we're dealt, it's how you play the hand

    Darlin', each day turned in to each year
    We've held each other through hopes and through fears
    Every turn life takes me near the best of that we can
    I'm still in love with you and how you play the hand

    Baby, what it takes is just an open heart
    Sounds a little foolish but it's the only place to start

    Baby, what it takes is just an open heart
    Sounds a little foolish but it's the only place to start

    I know that it's true sometimes love ends
    There's no guarantees whenever it begins
    Baby, I bet all I have on you and me again
    'Cause I still believe that love is how you play the hand
    Oh, it's not the cards we're dealt, it's how you play the hand
