Losing Side

My mind turns it over like a million times before
Backwards through the darkness a little bit more
Before he loved me I didn't know how to cry
Another day and I'm on the losing side

My mama taught me all the right things to say
But loneliness knocks at my door every day
I wanted him to love me without asking why
Another day and I'm on the losing side

I threw the dice
My heart went all in
But I still don't know what it means to win
And these pennies I'm gambling
What are they worth? 

When my lover left me he taught me how to grow
Now my body aches with the burdens
Now you say you'll show me how to make my pennies shine
Well you can bet I'll end up on the losing side
Another day and I'm on the losing side
