Risking it all, though it’s hard.

Once more, there is no bluff, I'm putting my cards on the table

She took it whole, at least a part
Now I threw all my cards on the table
Got my shell off

Now you began to talk, and speak of the situation and circumstances

With you time stands still, you confuse me
You're too much for me, feel how you break my will

Do you think I remain cool when you're with me

I smile, looking down
and I miss you
the cards on the table
and I miss you
