I feel
Like this metaphor may be too overused. What do you think?

I loved these lyrics as soon as I started reading them and a melody popped right into my head. It all just fell together from there. It's a fun upbeat rocking tune and I'm glad Liz let me work up the music for this.

kahlo2013 (Liz):
Wow!!!! Fantastic driving rock! Love the delivery! This is so much fun having the lyrics brought to life!!! Thank you!!!!

Lyrics: 

V1
you stack the deck
you count the cards
you call the bluff
you gamble hard
don't hit me between the sheets
then ante up with talk so sweet
C
you're a player
in a house of cards
you're a player
in a lover's heart
you're a player
(you're a player)
V2
you deal the deuce
you up the bet
you mark the ace
you take all you get
don't deal me another blow
leave the table, let me go
C
you're a player
in a house of cards
you're a player
in a lover's heart
you're a player
(you're a player)
B
deal me a straight flush of hearts
and we could be a winning pair
because I am too..a player here
yeah, I'm not going to fold
I'm going for all of the chips
and my own pot of gold
C
we are players
in a house of cards
we are players
in our lovers' heart
we are players
(we are players)
OUTRO
we are players
(you're a player, I'm a player)
we are players
(you're a player, I'm a player)
let me play with you...

Fantastic collaboration here. I love the upbeat tempo of this music. The singing is great. It sounds fresh, not overdone or "overused" at all.

Oh, I am so happy to hear the music and vocals with this great song. I just knew it would be good-and it is! Wonderful collab!

This is catchy! The lines are fun and lend themselves easily to music. And I think the song has great energy both in the lines and in the music and vocal delivery. I like the driving beat of the bridge too...its a nice switch up there. Great collab!

I love the short lines in this. Lets it have air and has a great rhythm for rock. The track is a real rocker too. I like that guitar.

This sounds wonderful; the awesome country-rock performance completely brings the words to life. The metaphor in the lyrics may not be completely novel, it they still convey the theme in an entertaining, engaging manner, and there's absolutely a place for "traditional done well" in music. This song has a comfortable feel while still catching the ear and setting the foot a-tapping.

Love the rockin' feel here and while the metaphor's been used time and time again... it's timeless...and you both have done a great job with! Great team! Enjoyed the listen!
