King of Hearts - Lucinda Williams

Can you relieve me, baby
Take your heart from your sleeve
And put it on the line,
Put it right here beside mine.
I can't seem to read you most of the time
Don't you know that I need you
Will you ever be mine
Love is a gamble,
I knew it from the start
Whoever's holding the cards, please deal me the King of Hearts
Please deal me the King of Hearts.

If you came to my door
And you asked me for more I'd lay down beside you.
I'd never deny you.
And if I had lots of silver I'd give some to you
And if I had lots of gold I'd make a rich man of you.
Everytime I see you,
I want to fall in love again
I would like to free you, but you won't even let me in
You won't even let me in.
Can you relieve me, baby
Take your heart from your sleeve,
And put it on the line
Put it right here beside mine.
I can't seem to read you
Most of the time
Don't you know that I need you
Will you ever be mine Love is a gamble,
I knew it from the start.
Whoever's holding the cards, please deal me the King of Hearts,
Please deal me the King of Hearts
