Heavenly – Skipjack lyrics
I keep my hand hidden from view
A poker face is what's called for with you
I hold my cards tight to my chest
Just one misjudged look, and you'll guess the rest
(Cathy's part:)
Look in the glass, reflections of me
My cards lade bare on the table to see
(Amelia's part:)
(Look, can't you see me? Acting cool, when
Really I'm scared, that this game's unfair)
(Cathy's part:)
My cheating eyes are all that you know
Now you're the banker, it's your turn to go
(Amelia's part:)
You could cheat me if you wanted to
I could not think any worse of you
Each way I lose a heart but somehow I lost the art
Of playing these stupid games, you're gonna win again and
I don't know what to do
I've gambled everything but you still ask for more
I can't afford not to give
Just one more chance, If only for the past
I know it's my last now
Not much to lose, when you've lost it all
But why must you take it so hard when you fall
(Cathy's part:)
I'll pay again at your asking price
I must accept it, but your look's like ice
(Amelia's part:)
I've tried to delay to put off the day
It comes clear you don't need me here
(Cathy's part:)
Dragged through the mill numb to it all
Just when I thought it was my turn to call
(Amelia's part:)
I know it is time for me to leave
Turn my worst fears into certainty
But I can't bring myself to leave for somewhere else
Without you forcing me which you won't do which means that
