House of Cards

from by Owen Temple

lyrics

We live in a house of cards so tall
It looks fine on the outside but it's bound to fall
But the looking good is easy
It's the feeling good that's hard
And this house is just a house of cards

We've been bluffing each other for almost seven years
We both put on our best poker face
But inside we're filled with tears
I bet our love and lost in too many other secret games
Now the love is spent and just the marriage remains

Chorus

You wear a diamond but you've got a broken heart
We look like the perfect paid but we're far apart
It just a matter of time until the shiny surface fades
And all that I've done wrong pays back in spades

Chorus
