Love The Deal

© Stephen Fearing / Michael Johnston 2016 (Wells, BC)

When will I learn to love the mystery
No one so blind as the man who wouldn’t see
The trickster waits
For everybody

Laugh at myself with the windows open wide
Send my vanity home and pour a glass of wine
A toast to truth
And curiosity

Oh you and me
We sweat and strain
We break our hearts
We wrack our brains
But if you live to love the game
Then learn to love the deal
love the deal

Suffer the fools
The martyr’s history
You can fall on your pen if you need to bleed
But the joke is when we try
To do things perfectly

So what if you fail
What if you succeed
You’ve got no control
You’ve got no guarantees
It’s a pilgrimage to walk this world
Creatively

Oh you and me
We sweat and strain
We break our hearts
We wrack our brains
But if you love to live the game
Then learn to love the deal
Love the deal

When will I learn to love the mystery
