If you wanna fall in love, then where should you stand to begin with?
And when the fall is done, how bad should you plan to get injured?
And if you land on your feet, does it count as a fall or a jump?
And does it feel like a fall if the hands that push you are holding you up?

Hand set on The Holy Book and battle axe

Amy Winehouse - Love is a Losing Game Feat. Mos Def (Live)
Money ain’t a thing. I’m a king, you’re a queen…
Big money chips sit stacked in the whip. Told me,
‘King love queen? Holler. Bet all, black.
Like, we can beat the house, cash out, and just bounce
Ride out into the sunset and never come back.’
Yeah, it sounds like a plan
And they deal you a hand
And the chips don’t fall like they did before
Like at first it was awesome
Now it’s just torture
Cleaning me out with the game that I taught ya’
I guess it’s my fault for taking your offer
Casino on the TV in the hotel room
I watch it for a few, now I’m thinking about you
Who’s Ginger? Who’s Sam?
Was it all just a scam?
Did you even give a damn?
I stretch out my hand but you ain’t coming back
And you breeze with my stacks
But it’s deeper than that
I just wonder where you at
And how I can get there
You whispered in my left ear,
‘Money ain’t a thing. You’re a king, I’m a queen.’
- Mos Def
One of my favorite Mos verses.
