Love Is a Losing Game
Amy Winehouse 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 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, it is a fate resigned

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

I remember travelling into London with my mum and brother when I was a about 14-15. When we got into London, not far from islington/highbury area, the traffic was slow but flowing with a stop start rhythm. As we were nearing the front of a set of traffic lights a girl that was sitting and waiting at a bus stop caught my eye. I couldn't help but stare at her as she sit there and gaze away in her own world. Looking at her I could see that her carefree head was in the clouds just watching the day go past.

She then turned her head noticed me staring at her, we made eye contact. As we paused in that moment looking at one another we smiled before breaking into a full on contagious beaming smile.

I thought "wow look how beautiful she is and what a gorgeous smile" and turned I my gaze away as I wasnt alpha back then...

Then I thought "Hold on! Was that?!"

I snapped my neck back and realised it was Amy Winehouse! She started laughing realising that I had only clocked on. I said to my brother that's Amy Winehouse there look!!! He didnt believe me.

The lights started to turn green so I quickly put my windows down and shouted "AMY!!" She looked and was laughing even harder and I knew it was her.

The cars moved off and my moment with her had passed.

I still think of that moment especially when driving into London as I usually go past that same spot. I think what if I would have got out the car and just took my shot at striking a convo. Just to connect with another human and interact before going on about our days and lives.

She had a beautiful smile.

For you, I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five-storey 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
'Til 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, it is a fate resigned
Over futile odds
And laughed at by the gods
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

For you I was the flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is 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
Till the chips were down
Know you're a gambling man
Love is a losing hand
Though I battled 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

Hard to believe this was the lowest charting single from back to black album. People have no taste! Such a beautiful sad song.

Yeah, she really shone as a torch singer, but definitely a once in a lifetime talent. I don't know why people want to starve & criticize our songbirds to death.

What ? No way this can be the lowest charting song ? People are effing stupid as eff. What the hell is wrong with people. They don't know music. No wonder todays music sounds so fake.

My heart for looking at this 🥺🥺🥺🥺 it’s crazy because while reading this story, I could see her smiling at you for some reason😳

London is awash with characters like her. Some people are at their most sane in a crazy place like this. People leave you alone and leave you too it. Too many leeches milking her and no one straight enough around her to keep an eye. Its too easy to normalise the bad state some people get into a lot over a period of time and the people around them are usually in the same messed up state so unaware. Maybe 15 old mates have died in a similar situation. Plenty of regrets that i was too messed up in that whole party rave drug seen back then to step in and help .
