I call you up
You pick up
You call my bluff
On the cards of love

You hold too close
Your hands to your chest
I can't read your eyes
But I confess

It's lonely far from you oh
Even when you're right by me
It's only why I wait for you
To take my hand

Why do I beg like a child for your candy?
Why do I come after you like I do? I love you
Whate'er you are, I swear
You'll be my angel, you

I play my cards
The best I can
But I lose my luck
When you're not here

My darling heart
Won't ya please give in?
I may be strong
But I want ya back again

When you're not here
Oh its hard to pretend
It's all alright again

When you're not here, love
It's hard to pretend
It's all alright

Still, why do I beg like a child for your candy?
Why do I run after you like I do? I love you
Whate'er you are, I swear
You'll be my angel, you

Watch the deck
Count your cards
It makes no sense
That I'm always losin'
When you're gone

Why do I beg like a child for your candy?
Why do I come after you like I do? I love you
Whate'er you are, I swear
You'll be my angel, you
When you're gone
