I hear tales, some playboy has kidnapped your heart
With his plane and his plans for games after dark
Just a pen in his pocket and the price of a room
Where the secondhand sheets smell of stale perfume

If there's sharks in the water, don't swim where it's deep
For the taste of success can be bitter and sweet
It could be alright that I act like a child
But you'll be the loser when the jokers run wild

You're just playin' the game but the stakes are too high
What will you do when the chips start to fly?
When the deck's stacked against you and the livin' gets hard
Oh, it's four walls of madness in this house of cards

Come on, you call me but I know there's time
In a handful of diamonds, oh a heart's hard to find
And your house of cards starts weighin' you down
All your nights become restless when the clubs start to pound

You're just playin' the game but the stakes are too high
What will you do when the chips start to fly?
When the deck's stacked against you and the livin' gets hard
Oh, it's four walls of madness in this house of cards

You're just playin' the game but the stakes are too high
What will you do when the chips start to fly?
When the deck's stacked against you and the livin' gets hard
Oh, it's four walls of madness in this house of cards
