lyrics

Wild Card
Music by Nathan Graham
Lyrics by Nathan Graham, Grahame Lesh, & Andrew Erickson

There’s always a story
Of a young minded fool
From back in the days
He broke all the rules

Always a smile
To cover up the truth
Why hold out on the wild card?

Burning a hole in your hand
Digging a hole in the ground
In a vast graveyard

This ain’t the story
He thought I’d tell
He was honest and true
When he couldn’t lose

No more smiles
For the last damn time
Why not wait for the wild card?

Burning a hole in your hand
Digging a hole in the ground
In a vast graveyard

There’s always a story
Worth being told
Every life has
A fortune to roll

It’s like in a movie
As the credits roll
Once it’s over there’s no wild card

Burning a hole in your hand
Digging a hole in the ground
Burning a hole in your hand
Digging a hole in the ground
