Story

I watch the setlist at every show for this one. By FAR, my favorite song to sing from DEL. Dave just gave us such a cool guitar sound to work with, and Lance and Mike nail the backing vox. Fun groove, too.

 

Lyrics

She’s been in here almost every night

I throw her cards and dirty jokes until she smiles

First impressions leave me wanting more

Stakes are rising but my heart just hit the floor

 

There’s not much I don’t understand

And I’m not a patient man

But she’ll double down in a lovers rage

And she’s past the bluffing stage…

She’s such a mystery – yes, but I got the Ace

This heart is history – Yeah…

 

Lady luck has been her latest flame

She’s on a winning streak with fashion for the game

Hit or stand tonight, I’ll move with grace

She hates to want me but she knows I hold the ace

 

She breaks the house and takes my heart

It’s tearing me apart

I know she’ll take a hit on Seventeen

With me in all my dreams… Oh, yeah…

She’s such a mystery – because I’m holding the Ace

This heart is history – Yeah! 

 

She breaks the house and takes my heart

It’s tearing me apart

I know she’ll take a hit on Seventeen

She’s the Queen of all my dreams – Oh, yeah…

She’s such a mystery – such style and grace

This heart is history – because I’m holding the Ace

She’s such a mystery – such a mystery, such a mystery

This heart is history – Yeah!
