Aces (Cheryl Wheeler)

Well my old friend said to me I ain't being what I'm supposed to be Well I don't know, it could be true I know I wasn't always there for you (Chorus) Now you're ready to walk out, you're ready to run Talk to me, can't you see I would never want to do what it seems I've done You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play Don't let this be the reason you would walk away The things you think that I should do I've never understood that part of you I know I've tried to be a friend But you feel undermined and hurt again Now don't let it convince you, don't take it to heart Compromise and realize you can never really run everything you start You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play Don't let this be the reason you would walk away And I guess I said I couldn't see How things could turn out like they've come to be And if I lied, if I knew I was only trying to think of you (Repeat Chorus)
