Solitaire

Queen of Spades, let me lay with you
You know that you want me to
Well, this Jack of Hearts is getting lonely here
Guess that’s what I get for playing Solitaire

I’ve been searching for the meaning of it all
Is there a story there in the way that the cards fall?
So I’ve been reading symbols, reading numbers, reading stars
I could drive myself crazy if I take this thing too far

Fifty-two cards laid out on the table
If you are able to see them all
We each get seven steps up to Heaven
To decorate the sky with our own stars

Fishing for Kings is the easiest part
But it’s always harder to finish than it is to start
Oh, Chance can be vicious or she can be your sweetest friend
Just remember to thank her when you win

Fifty-two cards laid out on the table
If you are able to see them all
We each get seven steps up to Heaven
To decorate the sky with our own stars

Sometimes I feel
Like my feet get caught beneath the wheel
I could see it so clear, but you didn’t
It’s a lonely game, Solitaire
Let me ask you, What do you believe?
When you look in the sky
Tell me, what face do you see?
Is it an old man with a beard?
Or emptiness stretching 40 million light-years?
Or are you standing on your rooftop
Thinking I can’t see a thing from here?

Fifty-two cards laid out on the table
Will I be able to see them all?
We each get seven steps up to Heaven
To decorate the sky with our own stars

Queen of Spades, you’re that last missing card
And I know that you’re looking for my Jack of Hearts
Well I’ll know you when I find you, but I won’t know when or where
So until then I’ll be playing Solitaire
I’ll be playing Solitaire
