Lyrics

“Tin Foil Stars” EP

 

[King of Diamonds]

“I could be the king of diamonds
and you could be my queen of hearts,
and maybe we’ll get dealt together
by the same deck of cards.
and maybe we’ll get held together
and form a winning hand,
or maybe we lose the draw
and never see each other again.
 
there’s only so much time
and there’s only so much left
for you and I
 
But if we could catch an ace
Well, we could make jack pay,
and if we could find a 10 somewhere
then darlin we’d be straight.
but if we get the 3 of clubs
or the 6 of spades,
well, that’ll be the end of us
and well get thrown away
 
there’s only so much time.
and there’s only so much left
for you and I
 
And there’s nothing we can do
but leave it up to chance
and maybe well get lucky
and it’ll work out like we planned.
cause theres 50 cards between us
but man, they feel like 50 states
and I know you’re out there somewhere
it just feels so far away
 
there’s only so much time.
and there’s only so much left
for you and I
 
I could be the king of diamonds
and I could be the queen of hearts
and maybe well get dealt together
by the same deck of cards”
