Wildcard
Miley Cyrus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Do you wanna play house? I could be your wife
Go and meet your mom in a dress too tight
Maybe I could stay and not break your heart
But don't forget, baby, I'm a wildcard

I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough
And don't wait for me
'Cause forever may never come

I'm a wildcard, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, ooh
Forever may never come

I walk in the door with my lips stained red
Pillows on the floor and the flowers dead
Make the music stop before it starts
'Cause don't forget, baby, I'm a wildcard

I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough

I'm a wildcard, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, ooh
Forever may never come

(Wildcard, ooh)

And ooh, bet your lovin'
I want all in
I want all or nothing
Ooh, it'll cost ya
I want all in
I want all or nothing

I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough

I'm a wildcard, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, ooh
Forever may never come





(Wildcard, ooh)

The chorus repeats the theme of her not being satisfied with just loving and being loved by him, acknowledging that forever may never come. The second verse paints a picture of a messy bedroom with red lipstick stains and dead flowers, emphasizing the messiness and unpredictability of their relationship. The song ends with Miley proclaiming that she wants it all, all or nothing, and reiterating that she is a wildcard.

Do you wanna play house? I could be your wife
Go and meet your mom in a dress too tight
Maybe I could stay and not break your heart
But don't forget, baby, I'm a wildcard
I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough
And don't wait for me
'Cause forever may never come
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Forever may never come
I walk in door, with my lips stained red
Pillows on the floor and the flowers dead
Make the music stop before it starts
'Cause don't forget, baby, I'm a wildcard
I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Forever may never come
(Wildcard, oh, ooh)
And, ooh, bet you're lovin'
I went all in, I want all or nothing
Ooh, it'll cost ya
I want all in, I want all or nothing
I love when you hold me
But loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Loving you is never enough
I'm a wildcard, oh, ooh
Forever may never come
(Wildcard, oh, ooh)
