thanks @Goatrelated  - much appreciated.
After @robertkc  remark about the ending, I added a little vocal extra in the end :  https://soundcloud.com/oorlab/deck-of-cards

This is such a good song and production @oorlab  Listening now I felt like I`d discovered an unreleased Grateful Dead track , it has that Robert Hunter quality in the lyrics and loose but confident changes in the band sound.
I like the new ending .

Thanks @robertkc - I read about Grateful Dead  but know very little of their music. I Found  Ripple on youtube that sounds country & western, westcoast - nice breezy feel. Will explore more of their music.

I like the style of your song, it's very nice to hear, the chorus "So shuffle this deck of cards" appears at the right moment to open the song and the mix I find that it is very well made. The lryrics plays with despair and hope transforming it into a journey, a game in search of its center, of freedom from fear. Well done!

Merci beaucoup @Mora Amaro La Loba  - indeed I aimed for hope after despair,and that one can always reshuffle and start a new game or chapter in life.
Just uploaded a video for it

Hi I loved the synth sounds, really audiophile and organic. The tom jumped out at me a bit too much in the mix and the snare sounds just a bit too coloured compared to the purity of the synths.

 Very 'war of the worlds' type chord progression in chorus which gave loads of mood.

Nice track! :-)

Good video. When approaching the image it enhances the intro and the images attach us to the story.
I follow you on your channel.

What a great introduction @oorlab and then it leads into that groove that just sits down where it needs to be.

I really appreciate the space left in this track. However, It does feel like the 'deck of cards choruses  are missing something though.
A bit more body perhaps ? a bit more bottom end. That would add contrast to the verses.

Maybe it's a mix thing but I wonder if there should be another lower pitched instrument instrument in the chorus to add a bit more 'something' 

I reckon at the end a fade would be better to give the illusion to the listener that this track and it's groove will just play on for ever.
The current ending seems almost like  'we've run out of ideas so we better stop now' ;-)

Good job
