House of Cards

I've been living in the house of cards That I can almost know your move Cause I've seen how the cards shuffle And how the games have been played I learnt all this while growing up in the house By age of seven, I could keep a straight face And bluff while I had my face on I had no room for being played I had a heart of aces, A poker heart, a true art That's why i was good at games Cause I knew when to bend the rules I learnt the game then the players That I should never up my hand Cause that would only raise stakes on me And only make it harder for me to win I learnt that I can't do it all alone That's why at every table I sat I made sure I made a friend One that always has my back The PO£T
