Jilted Lovers And Broken Hearts

Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Man the city just ain't so kind tonight

I need a place to take refuge
See I've been loving you blind
I guess it made it hard for me to find

That we were caught up in the middle of a worn out dream
I knew we were in trouble
But baby I almost screamed when I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round

Why did you roll your dice?
Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away
While I'm stuck here on the ground

Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Man the city just ain't so kind tonight

And if I had my suspicions
I kept them out of my heart
Just wish I would've know right from the start

That you'd be speaking in riddles and you'd never confide
You know I knew we were in trouble
But baby I almost cried when I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round

Why did you roll your dice?
Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind
And I'm still waiting to be found

You did a fine job of hiding
That crooked ace up your sleeve
You stumbled down my direction
And kissed me on the cheek and leave
I followed you through the darkness
I followed you through the cold
Woman I can tell you one thing
You're gonna wish you could go back and fold

Why did you roll your dice?
Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away
While I'm stuck here on the ground

Why did you roll your dice?
Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind
And I'm still waiting to be found

Yeah!
Will I ever win?
Only time will tell
You got to suffer to remember, I will
But our ideals never really marched in time
That's the bottom line
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
