When I first heard “Love Is A Losing Game”, it really struck me.

The lyrics, the melody, and Amy’s voice – one of my favourites and biggest inspirations in music.

If you don’t already know the lyrics by heart, here they are. Simply beautiful. Something of which anyone who’s ever had their heart broken can definitely relate to.

“Love Is A Losing Game”

For you I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is a losing game

One I wish I never played
Oh what a mess we made
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

Played out by the band
Love is a losing hand
More than I could stand
Love is a losing hand

Self professed… profound
Till the chips were down
…know you’re a gambling man
Love is a losing hand

Though I battle blind
Love is a fate resigned
Memories mar my mind
Love is a fate resigned

Over futile odds
And laughed at by the gods
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

I wish I had more time to do a better cover (and video) of this song, but these days I rarely have time to do any covers (what more work on the production) and when I do, I often have to nail it in one take. Eek!

The busyness from day to day only makes me yearn even more for the precious moments when I can slip in to my pyjamas, lay in bed and just sing songs with my guitalele in hand all – that would be my idea of having fun instead of going out for drinks or to party these days 😛

If you’re wondering what a guitalele is, it’s the guitar the size of a ukulele. It may be small in size, but it’s nothing short of awesome.

I still crack up every time I think back of how I created this whole track without an electric guitar or any amps, but just a guitalele and special effects from LogicPro! And all done from home 😛

Check it out.
