Let’s Play

Album: This Town, Going Under (2010)

You’ve traded your king for an ace
Throwed me back in and shuffled
But you’ve lost your crown and all of your grace
You’ve fallen from so high and to one brought the ace

I thought I could read your game
And I thought what you said was true
I know I am the one to blame
For betting so much on someone like you

You’ve punished me with some more love
Some more I found myself afraid of
I should have let it go and let you burn
Than come back here only to see the turn
I’m not just a card in a game
Or some more chips that you can claim
When I thought I had read I folded

But you’ve showed me your hand to make sure I was broken

But you’ve seen now that it takes more than one round
To keep you up and safe from falling on the ground
But you’ve cheated now, this game is over

I thought I could read your game
I always thought what you said was true
I know I am the one to blame
For betting so much on someone like you

Now run my queen, run my queen
