LOVE GAMBLE                                                original version
LOVE TANGLE

roulette     makes my nerves jangle
poker plays     are not my angle
casino games     can't hold a candle

               to love

love is    my kind of gamble
love is    my kind of tangle
I'm risking all    that I can handle
I'm risking all    that I can handle

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

   sometimes high, sometimes mangled
   I just cannot get a handle
   on how to win in this gamble

   I ask myself, what are the chances
   of success in my romances
   before I give up or go rancid?

   then, among love's thorns and brambles,
   snagged again when on a ramble
   I need     no preamble

               to give love another chance

               love mild
               love wild
               love returned
               to me

love is    my kind of gamble
love is    my kind of tangle
I'm handling all    that I can manage
I'm handling all    that I can manage

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

   soon I notice that you savor
   every bit of my behavior
   the odds are now in my favor

   then, my feet step on your shoes
   I start to sing the blues
   but you     whisper the news

               you love
               you love   me

               tender   glowing
               reaching   opening

               the hungry heart
               love

*****                             

   I've tried
            alone
            pride
            cool
            snide

   And I can't hide that

   cool cat   can't hold a candle
                         to love
   distant glamor   fades beside
                         love

love is   the finest gamble
love is   the warmest tangle
the cool lose more   than they imagine
the cool lose more   than they imagine

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

   the hard shell    hides the heart
   the cold shoulder    keeps apart
   the cool lose     before they start

   snubs and sneers    frost the air
   snobbish cuts    create despair
   distant glamor    wears and tears

               love

               deep and mild
               hot and wild

               melting ice
               love

love is   the finest gamble
love is   the warmest tangle
I feared it more    than I imagined
I feared it more    than I imagined

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

   my hard shell   hid my heart
   my cold shoulder   chilled my heart
   my guarded ways   walled my heart

   my hard shell   hurt my love
   my cold shoulder   blocked my love
   my fear of hurt   locked me from

               love

               gentle   scary
               searing   daring

               filling the heart
               love

*****                             

I lost
      though I never gambled
I ached
      though I never tangled

my nerves jangled
my heart strangled

until I saw

cool cat   can't hold a candle
             to love

now
love is   my kind of gamble
love is   my kind of tangle
I'm risking all   the scrapes and scrambles
love melts all   my icy brambles

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

   you can see I'm eager   ready
   I can see your love is steady
   no need for any betting

   the odds are stacked in our favor
   we're side by side    I hope forever
   a lifetime    together

               of love

               love mild
               love wild

               love between
                  you and me

love is   our kind of gamble
love is   our kind of tangle
we're winning all   that we can handle
we're winning all   that we can handle

               LOVE GAMBLE
               LOVE TANGLE

               love between
                  you and me

Love Gamble, Love Tangle -
click here for original version
.

music - Peter Laczko, 1997

Developed together, words and music,
from the initial word version
and the initial music version.

Hopes and dreams and plans
later set aside -
life going on in other directions
when the next step was too hard -
in this case, the next step of recording.

And then what?
It can be too hard to go on, too daunting.

Now, more plans.

I can still play Peter's music in my head,
hear the guitar chords, feel the pauses.

Roulette makes my nerves jangle.
Casino games can't hold a candle.
Love is my kind of gamble, tangle.
Words music poetry.
Spoken word tango rap beat.
Love tangle. Love tango.  Love.


A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.

spoken word poetry?

Where do these words belong?
They don't follow song rules
so they can't be songs
Are some rap
with a rap beat?
Are some spoken word?
Some are to be sung -
country, trip hop, pop, folk, blues,
country folk, rock and roll, rap,
world beat, jazz, folk pop,
rhythm and blues.

words going on and on
like the beat of a drum

piecing together moments

word music worlds

closer

and then
can't hear
they're gone

like moments
