Queen Of Hearts Lyrics

Midnight - I'm a-waiting on the 1205
Hoping it'll take me just a little farther down the line
Moonlight - you're just a heartache in disguise
Won't you keep my heart from breaking if it's only for a very short time

Playing with the Queen of Hearts - knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool - who'll do anything for you
Laying out another lie - thinking about a life of crime
That's what I'll have to do to keep me away from you

Baby - It makes me feel so bad
Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done
And baby - I know it makes you sad
But when they're handing out the heartaches - you know you got to have you some

Playing with the Queen of Hearts - knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool - who'll do anything for you
Laying out another lie - thinking about a life of crime
That's what I'll have to do to keep me away from you

Lovers, I know you've had a few
You hide your heart beneath the covers and you tell 'em they're the only one
And others - know what I'm going through
It's so hard to be a lover when you say you only do it for fun

Playing with the Queen of Hearts - knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool - who'll do anything for you
Laying out another lie - thinking about a life of crime
That's what I'll have to do to keep me away from you

To keep me away from you
To keep me away from you
