When you were dealt
An ace straight down
I was dressed in spades
According to the games that we played
So ante up
I'm worth it all

Have you any time for self-evaluation?
I suggest you find what you've been looking for

Don't lose your heart under the covers, baby
Just like everyone you said you loved
Don't expect the doves to pick you from the ground
Because, baby, I've pinned them down one by one

When you were slowly falling down
I was there to catch you
Fom the dark nights and lonely roads
So listen up when I say

Have you any time for self-evaluation?
I suggest you find what you've been looking for

Don't lose your heart under the covers, baby
Just like everyone you said you loved
Don't expect the doves to pick you from the ground
Because, baby, I've pinned them down one by one

I'm so lush addicted to your laugh
Convicted by your smile that holds me back
Did you ever care about
What I cared about?
Did you ever care at all?

And don't expect the doves to carry on with you
Don't expect the doves to carry on what you have done

She sings, "La da da da da, la da da da da da"
Baby, just like everyone you said you loved
And don't expect the doves to carry on with you
'Cause, baby, I've pinned them down one by one

    General Comment"When you were dealt
    An ace straight down
    I was dressed in spades...."
    i think this means that she was given something good but didnt know she had it or that it was there(like him and how much he thought he could love her)



    "Don't lose your heart under the covers, baby
    Just like everyone you said you loved
    Don't expect the doves to pick you from the ground
    Because, baby, I've pinned them down one by one" here i think hes telling her that hes more than a "hook-up and he isnt just another guy to give herself to"

    "When you were slowly falling down
    I was there to catch you
    Fom the dark nights and lonely roads
    So listen up when I say"

    again i think he is saying hes there for her and he isnt the same as the other guys


    "I'm so lush addicted to your laugh
    Convicted by your smile that holds me back
    Did you ever care about
    What I cared about?
    Did you ever care at all?"
    now i think hes saying they used to be friends and he liked her but never knew if she had feelings aout him too.
