It was my fault
My move, and my game
If I'd've known
A little more
I'd've run away
It was dark out
And I held the cards
I was the dealer
It wasn't hard

Mistress of my fate
I was the card shark
If I'd've looked
A little ahead
I'd've run away
I was the mistress
Of my fate
I was the turn-out
If I'd really know you then
You'd've had to watch out
You'd've had to watch out

It was my fault, my move
And my wine
I see the sundown
And it still shines
Oh, but it was dark out
And I held the cards!
I was the dealer
And it was't hard
I was the mistress
Of my fate
I was the card shark
Jesse told me at an early age
I could get away!

I was the mistress
Of my fate
I gave it all out
If I'd really known you then
You'd have had to watch out
Watch out!

I'll be the dancer
You'll be the player
I'll dance around you
If you'll stay here
I'll be the passion
You'll be the play
I'll just almost hold you
If you'll just almost stay here
I'll just almost hold you

If you'll just almost stay here!

I was the mistress
Of my fate!
I was the card shark, oh!
If I'd've looked
A little ahead
I'd've run away, yeah

I was the mistress
Of my fate
I gave it all out
If I'd really known you then
You'd've had to watch out

Mistress of my fate
I was the mistress of my fate
I was the mistress of my fate
I gave it all out
