Heart Flush, Queen High

I’ve fallen, fallen, deep in love
   How is it you don’t know?
It must be in my face and eyes
   It should show in my glow.
My night’s last thought, my dreams – are you,
   The first when I awake.
I sigh, I swoon, I think of you
   With ev’ry breath I take. 

Chorus:
Heart flush; queen high
This is the hand you’ve dealt me
These are the cards I hold;
I’d love to lay them on the table
Oh, if I could be so bold.
Heart flush, queen high
This is the hand you’ve dealt me;
These are the cards I hold
I’ve made my bet and I’m all in
Just waiting to be told. 

My heart is swollen with its love;
   It’s tender and it’s sore.
It is so filled that it could burst –
   I cannot love you more.
My heart is like a flooded lake
   About to overflow.
One drop of rain, one look from you
   And over it will go. 

Chorus:
Heart flush; queen high
This is the hand you’ve dealt me
These are the cards I hold;
I’d love to lay them on the table
Oh, if I could be so bold.
Heart flush, queen high
This is the hand you’ve dealt me;
These are the cards I hold
I’ve made my bet and I’m all in
Just waiting to be told.

The photo doesn’t match the hand I described in
the song.  A heart flush is 5 hearts, not in order
as the photo shows (a straight).  Queen high
would mean the highest card was a queen.  I
didn’t think I’d find one exactly right.  This one
is fine.  🙂
