lyrics

in the cards
can't play the queen till your hearts been broken
not in the stars
depends on how your lucks been going
i'm broken in my heart
back to the start
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you

lost respect for you
when you played the ace of spades and i
thought of telling you
that i was hurt when you walked away but
my tongue was in a knot
and you put me on the spot
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you

what you said was true
i'm not about to be the one
who didn't think it through
i held my highest heart for you
oh cause you were on the run
guess i'm not the one
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you

played the game i'm not ashamed
had my chance now that all remains
are memories of losing to you am i just a fool

Probe:
no you'll be alright big homie
here's how you get by with out feeling lonely
you get on you get mines you get a new ronie
get rid of your old queen that hoes phonie
she's so dramatic she needs to get a tony
check her schematics man she's so sporatic
she's so eratic and full of boloney
but it could even be cool being alone homes

now i'm on my own
with an empty deck and whiskey drinking
thinking of the time
when i shot the moon with your eyes wide open
i'm broken in my heart
back to the start
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you
i'll get by i'll get by like i should without you
