Poker Face

Maybe it was for the best
That I lost the jackpot
That night 
When we were foolish
Dreams in our eyes
New stack of cards
On the felt table
And I bet it all
I threw it in
For a chance
To love you
Once again

You know

I always carry an extra Ace
In my deck of cards
A King of Jacks
Baby baby baby

Do you see my hand?
Diamond shaped lies
Crimson colored heartfelt eyes
Raven hued secrets
A set of 5 fingered

A Queen of Tricks
Up my sleeve?

I’m done playing games
I’m throwing away my poker face

We’ve used the hand we’re dealt
The best way we knew how
Throwing a heartbeat on a dice

Just to lose it all
