lyrics

In every hand I've ever played
I cannot hold the queen of spades
I lose your number call it fate
And all my life I've shown up twenty minutes late
But I don't wear a watch for a reason

Mother Mary close your eyes
See you on the other side
Let's get together while we're high
Cause when the morning comes I won't remember why
I was so haunted and so happy

Goldfish always die
And sinners always come to see the light
So why should it be different for you and I
It wasn't any better then though we both pretend
That the bands had more to say
And nothing every changed

Darling if you were heaven sent
I'm not sure it could prevent
All the shit that I'd invent
And in the end we'd laugh and say it wasn't meant to be
And blame it on the weather

Heroes always bleed
And mountains always fall into the sea
So why should it be different for you and me?
It wasn't that they looked the same
Though I still maintain they were queens by different names
And all of them were spades
