The Book of Saturday Lyrics
Forgetting The Game
Every Time I Try To Leave You
You Laugh Just The Same
'Cause My Wheels Never Touch The Road
And The Jumble Of Lies We Told
Just Returns To My Back To Weigh Me Down...
We Lay Cards Upon...

I think the singer is trying to tell that he's got the move like Jagger. Perhaps the next girl shall be his no. ?. Wild guess 99 perhaps?
This song is so tricky and complicated. I LOVE YOU...
I've never heard lyricist Richard Palmer-James give a full explanation of this song, but I have heard him say that "the book" was supposed to be a scrapbook or photo album of sorts, showing all the highs and lows of a long, complicated marriage or romantic experience.
The song is a sort of portrait of a relationship with a lot of big ups and downs. The man says he often thinks about leaving his love, but she doesn't take that seriously, because after all this time, he STILL hasn't ever gotten up the nerve to leave.
And just when he starts to think the relationship is doomed by all the lies and miscommunications between them, there will be a wonderful moment (like an early morning round of lovemaking) that makes him think they belong together after all.
The man is sifting through all his feelings and memories, as if he were going through a scrapbook, and trying to decide whether the relationship is worth saving.
Stay or go- he has to choose.
