Lyrics

Since you’re gone I spend each lonely night
Dealing out the cards from left to right
And the queen of hearts is there to remind me
That I’m all alone just playing solitaire

Love was just another game for two
I see now, that’s all it meant to you
And my heart got lost somewhere in the shuffle
Now, I’m all alone just playing solitaire

In each romance there’s an element of chance
A gamble to win or to lose
You play to win, then you find you’re playing
In a game with no rules, just made for fools

Now the joker has the laugh on me
‘Cause I played my hand so carelessly
And until you want to share that old feeling
I’ll be dealing time away with solitaire

And until you want to share that old feeling
I’ll be dealing time away with solitaire
