"King Of Hearts" as written by Cameron Keym, Salvatore Mignano, Douglas Michael Robinson and Joseph Philip Zizzo....
Who are you there with?
Cause I swear I've seen him before.
Though, in the distance I just turned my head away.
What part of clinging to the same trends
Makes sense to a girl who cries
At least twice a day because she's unhappy?

We could have made it with a couple of deep breaths.
There was a light. We could have reached it, there was a light.
Though, all this pain and aggravation
Causes me to feel that I was just a card dealt out of spite.

Well, I call your bluff.

Get with it, get with it. Did you think that I was blind enough to not realize?
Well better luck next, better luck next guy.
And why was it, why was it every time that we would have it out you wouldn't cry?
You'd just place your bet, make the call, go run and hide.

Who are you there with?
Cause I smell him on your skin.
Though, in an instant I just turn my face in shame.
Now, on the edge of demonstration, a suspicious feel that I was just a card
Dealt out of spite.

Well, I call your bluff.

Get with it, get with it. Did you think that I was blind enough to not realize?
Well better luck next, better luck next guy.
And why was it, why was it every time that we would have it out you wouldn't cry?
You'd just place your bet, make the call, go run and hide.

All alone. [Repeat x6]

My heart isn't broken, and I'm not dead. [Repeat x8]

    General CommentTHe lyrics are pretty decent. This might be pointing out the obvious but to me this is about a guy that finds out his girl is cheating on him. He is a little hurt but sucks it up and moves on pretty easy. The" my heart isn't broken, and I'm not dead" is what I get that from.

    (betterluck next guy) I love that line.

    General CommentThe "my heart isn't broken, and I'm not dead" is a reference to the last album, which is pretty cool.

    General CommentI like the metaphors about being dealt out of spite. I think the whole play on cards is interesting and witty.
    And, this song is very beautiful.

    General CommentHas anybody thought of the fact that he says he isn't affected yet the title is King of Hearts AKA Suicide King. He's depressed over the girl but he's denying it.
