Deck of Cards
by ella jaz kirk

Jack of Spades, ten of Hearts
Queen of Fools that’s
what I am now.
Eight of clubs, I am above you now
Queen of Fools that’s
what you made me.

Chorus
So coronate me with

a dunce cap.
Crown me the Queen of Fools.
Queen of Fools Now.
Queen of them all.

Now my lips, are glued shut
but inside I am broken.
Suddenly, you don’t care at all
when she’s around I’m nothing.

Chorus

Burst from the cage, free from the grave
you stand their laughing at me.
Though my pain rages within
you think my life is funny.

Chorus

Now the cards
have been shuffled.
Cut me and leave 51.
Eight of Clubs I am above you now.
Queen of Fools that’s what
you made me.

Chorus

Bridge:
What did I do?
What did I do?
I only thought of hurting you.
Now I see
I’ve gone too far.
I never thought I’d do you harm

So coronate me with
a dunce cap.
Crown me the Queen of Fools.
Queen of Fools Now.
Queen of them all.
