Lyrics
The fix is in, we should have known
It was always there from the start
Deep within, so slow and strong
Working its way to the heart
One day you notice a change
And then nothing's the same
I'll be your lover now, baby don't deny it
I'll be your lover now, money couldn't buy this

You crossed your mouth to keep mine shut
My timing was never that good
But I couldn't stand to see you mixed up
With a faker who kept his cards hid
I stayed in the game 'til the end
Waiting for my big hand
I'll be your lover now, money couldn't buy this
I'll be your lover now, baby don't deny it

'Cause I know your deep dirty places of pain
You know your secrets will always be safe
I'll keep them with mine, we're two of a kind
I'll be your lover now

The penny drops, the bottle spins
The stars all shift, the tables turn
The arrow strikes, the die is cast
The high shall be low and the first shall be last
I stayed in the game 'til the end
Waiting for my big hand
I'll be your lover now
You know your secrets will always be safe
Because there's nothing more precious than shame
I'll keep yours with mine, we're two of a kind
I'll be your lover now
