House Of Cards

Opening:
Do you see me?
Do you feel me?
Do you hear me calling you?
I am at your feet crying for you, you mute me out every time
Why are you here? Consonantly striking down at my House Of Cards

Chorus:
I want you so far out of my life
You always attack my cards
I can’t help myself
That this is what I am
I told you I’m not perfect
Yet all you do is play me
Like a House Of Cards x2

Verse:
You seem to want
To play poker
With all my cards, I’m sorry I’m not the royal flush you wanted
Don’t you see I’m, Valuable
But you discard me

Chorus:
I want you so far out of my life
You always attack my cards
I can’t help myself
That this is what I am
I told you I’m not perfect
Yet all you do is play me
Like a House Of Cards
Like A House Of Cards

Bridge:
I’m done, done, done
You took the blade of the king
Struck it right into my heart
I’m done, done, done
I’m bound to make mistakes
They are very tiny. But you make them huge

Chorus:
I want you so far out of my life
You always attack my cards
I can’t help myself
That this is what I am
I told you I’m not perfect
Yet all you do is play me
Like a House Of Cards
Like a House of Cards
Like a House of Cards
Like a House Of Cards
Like a House Of Cards

I love it!! I also agree with Words, it's amazing, but attack my hand does flow better :)

<3 it to death!! Keep working!

I like it :) Again, some of your wording is colloquial, but that's alright. Instead of attack my cards I would say attack my hand (you know, hand of cards? XD) because it flows better. General flow issues irk me, however it would be sung. So, flow is very different in that sense. 

I do like it ^_^

The whole idea i was trying to pass is that it's a house of cards and the person steal the cards. The whole aspect of the poker scene, was that even though that person stole her personality treat and basically gave them away.
