queen of hearts lyrics – company of thieves

“queen of hearts”

meet me in the middle of my mind, and no one else
i’ve been waiting here now for a while, i need your help
like the time you tore my skin and all the world went blank
never felt such real escape- it bled into the day

i stress talking so much that it hurts, then
can’t speak but a word to a lover that was

i’m gonna paint myself aside, like something second in line
just gonna paint myself aside, like something second in line

meet me in the middle of the night; i never sleep
since you told me all the secrets that i swore to keep
in my dreams i can make love to you without a fight
and sometimes i wonder if it’s wrong or if it’s right

i stress talking so much that it hurts, then
can’t speak but a word to a lover that was

i’m gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
just gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line

here, within the walls, i cannot take all the wreck involved (it’s contagious)
here, within the walls, i cannot take it- all the wreck involved

everyone’s taking their cards
as usual, i’ll be the queen of hearts

i’m gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
just gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
i’m going silver
all over silver
