This beautiful, beautiful song is actually not that complicated.
It is built up by three verses. Each verse is introduced by the Fm6(b5), then
it runs for these 16 bars. So this is played 3 times, and the song is through.

 GUITARS
***********
In this song there are two guitars:
(I have also typed this into GP6. If anyone's interested, just mail me!)

Firstly, this is the funky electric guitar panned in the left side:

In the 3rd round it plays this cool little fill in bars 4-5: Cmaj9 Cmaj9 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +|-7----------101010--151515--12---|12----------1212---7-7----10-----||-8-----------8-8-8--151515--13---|13----------1313---8-8-----8-----||-9-----------9-9-9--171717--12---|12----------1212---9-9-----9-----||---------------------------------|---------------------------------||---------------------------------|---------------------------------||---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
Secondly, this is the heavily reverbed electric guitar panned in the left side. The chords are strummed staccato, for the reverb to ring out clearly.

LYRICS ********** For you I was a flame, love is a losing game Five story fire as you came, love is a losing game One I wished 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, 'til the tips were down Know you're a gambling man, love is a losing hand Though I'm rather blind, love is a fair resign Memories mar my mind, love it is a fair resign Over a few tiles, and laughter by the docks And now the final frame, love is a losing game +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 26th /July /10 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
