I Need a Win

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

cracking the knuckles of my mojo hand
got my lucky belt buckle on
and a little bit of cash
step into the place
poker face hovering above my chin

I need a win
tired of loosing
going downtown
I need a win
I been loosing
gotta get 'round

she got them short shorts on
I can feel the light
emanating from them heavenly shapes
orchestrating the tide
a body's mostly water
and I'm swimming in every inch

loneliness I got it
in spades
put all my cards on the table
I aint good at this game
handful of heart
but aint no diamonds in my chain

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
