lyrics

A deck of cards, the ace of hearts slid hidden up your sleeve
Like a pro, you let it show, whenever I tried to leave
I chased the win and bought back in, it seemed you wanted me
You cleaned me out, took only what you need

And so it goes, you take the chance
Know when to fold, know when to hold your hand
I don’t blame you, I can’t count the times I’ve done the same
But it hurts like hell to lose at your own game

You held the straight, right out the gate, oh you’re clever on the draw
Just one look, that’s all it took and you had me at the bar
Here’s comes the turn, the last card burned, oh man, here comes the charm
The queen of hearts, you had me by the arm

[Chorus]

You played it smart, I wore my heart out bleeding on my sleeve
You kept your cool, I played the fool for everyone to see
And by the time the river ran, man I could barely breathe
I bit the hook, you read me like a book

[Chorus]
