House of Cards (ext. version)

from THE UNENDING ALTERATION OF THE HUMAN HEART by Gabrielle Louise

lyrics

I’m not feeling tired
I’m not feeling worn
I’m feeling like the river bed
after the storm
now I know why the rose bush
needed the thorn
needed the thorn

were you just an illusion?
just a mirage?
or a four story fire
in a house of cards
you think you’re so authentic
you don’t know where to start
until you’re honest with yourself
you’ll break every heart
building a house of cards

I’m not feeling split
I’m not feeling torn
I’m feeling like an earthquake
took out the floor
now I know why the soldier
needed the sword
needed the sword

I guess I thought I was holy
thought I was good
till you hit the highway
to be understood

Maybe I was too fragile
maybe it was too hard
but nobody wins the game
it only falls apart
our house of cards
