Game of Hearts

Crushes can break you & love can make you
Dates come & go, but partners never leave you stranded
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you

Think about it for a second
You don’t gamble with certainty, you take risks with the unknown
Faith ain’t blind when you’re listening to your heart & mine
Love isn’t a crutch, it isn’t something you hold onto
Unless my black heart breaks your big heart & my views make your tears swell
You don’t have to worry about a thing
Once the words “I will change” become a regular part of every conversation
That’s your cue to move on & make reservations

We don’t always do what’s best for us because we’re afraid of being “selfish”
But it’s not selfish if you’re doing what’s right
Making moves on strangers while ignoring the heartbeat of your back home love is unforgivable
So if you can go a day or more without thinking of another, maybe it’s time to cut the cord & call it over
Love doesn’t dance with desperation just to feel a spark
Don’t play games with hearts
Every round cuts deep like diamonds

Crushes can break you & love can make you
Dates come & go, but partners never leave you stranded
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you

Player one, game over
You can’t win with a hand full of hearts
You just lose when you try to suit yourself
Every game in town is sleeping around, popping cherries two at a time like pills
One night isn’t worth the fight
Real love doesn’t play for keeps because it isn’t playing at all
Everywhere I go, I’ll have you by my side
So take my hand & we can figure this love game out
Let’s be real & see how that feels
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you
