Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah

How do you feel when the king has gotta lie down
When you found out and see that this is something that couldn't work out
You thought that you'd be ready
But I knew that you always had your doubts

I just wanted to be the one to save you, the one that knew how
But this all would have an ending, it was so clear to see
'Cause you couldn't wrap your head around all the jealousy

That's why I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
You are gonna lose 'cause you chose to make the moves you made

Checkmate, checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
Girl you will always lose when you choose to make the moves you make

Yeah oh

Said, how are you feeling when the king has gotta lie down?
'Cause you put up a wall around your castle and I just can't climb around

I can hear you on the other side of it, screaming
But you're too afraid to face the demons
So you let your heart just take the beating
And I'm the one who pays for it, think I gotta get

I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
You are gonna lose 'cause you chose to make the moves you made

Checkmate, checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
Girl you will always lose when you choose to make the moves you make

And I really don't wanna do this (do this)
Girl, it's breaking my heart in two (in two)
Yes, I'd give anything to keep on playing here with you

And maybe we can pick these pieces up and start again another day when things have changed
But you left me with no other moves to choose

Checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
You are gonna lose 'cause you chose to make the moves you made

Checkmate, checkmate
I'm calling checkmate on you, baby
Oh I'm calling checkmate, checkmate
'Cause you will always lose when you choose to make the moves you make

I ran out of options (I ran out of options)
I ran out of options (I ran out of options)
