Song Meaning
Verse 1
I live my life in chains
Got my hands in chains
And I can't sticks with the cards that I got
With a deal like this
I must insist a girls got more to do
Then be the way you think a woman should
I'm taking it into my hands
In this mans land I can
Understand why I'm taking command
I've had enough of stuff
And now it's time to think about
Me, me yeah
Verse 2
And you can easily gamble your life away
Second after second
And day by day
You play the game or you walk away
It's a new turn on a blue day
And a cool deal of life for me
And it's all good
Verse 3
I know that the spades
Are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs
Are weapons of war
I know that diamonds
Mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
Verse 4
I've always played it safe nothings ever safe
Give me the courage to back my own convictions
Every decision I make
I pay it back and more
Now turn the cards and let them fall to me
I don't need to play on with the hand that they have given me
I give it back
'Cause it's not the way it has to be
Verse 5
And you can easily gamble your life away
Second after second
And day by day
You play the game or you walk away
It's a new turn on a blue day
And a cool deal of life for me
And it's all good
Verse 6
I know that the spades
Are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs
Are weapons of war
I know that diamonds
Mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
Verse 7
That's not the shape
The shape of my heart
My heart
That's not the shape of my heart
Verse 8
And you can easily gamble your life away
Second after second
And day by day
You play the game or you walk away
It's a new turn on a blue day
And a cool deal of life for me
And it's all good
Verse 9
And you can easily gamble your life away
Second after second
And day by day
You play the game or you walk away
It's a new turn on a blue day
And a cool deal of life for me
And it's all good
Verse 10
I know that the spades
Are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs
Are weapons of war
I know that diamonds
Mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
Verse 11
I know that the spades
Are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs
Are weapons of war
I know that diamonds
Mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
