Song Description

A betrayed man strikes back at a disloyal lover by "banishing" her from his heart. He cites the offenses against her, then sets the sentence, as he is the prosecution, judge and jury -- he's the King of his heart.

Story Behind the Song

Lyrics

KING OF MY HEART

Stacked the deck against me
You even tried to mark the cards
I tossed you from the palace
When another man tore us apart

My cards were on the table
But you bluffed me right from the start
You are banished from my kingdom
Because I am still the king?the king of my heart
(chorus)
I had a handful of aces
Why?d you make a joker out of me?
You can make your poker faces
But they don?t fool me
You can leave your lipstick traces
But any fool can see
I got a handful of aces
And I am still the king of my heart

Bet the house on you dear
Turned out to be a house of cards
You tossed me to the gutter
Never knew that I could fall so far

Cashed your chips and ran as if
That man had your soul from the start
You are banished from my kingdom
Because I am still the king ? the king of my heart
(chorus)
I had a handful of aces?

(coda)
I love you and you say you love me
But you also love him
That?s not the way it?s s?posed to be
