Lyrics:

Sitting in the dust
I'm wondering what I might have done
For you to walk out on me
Thought I was your loved one

Clearly I have mistaken
You're actions and you're words
For what you said meant nothing
And I'm fallin' like a house of cards

Chorus
So give me a shot of your best bourbon
And better leave the bottle
Tomorrow I'll get back on my feet
Right now you're best forgotten

Every time you said
We were all forever
What was it that you meant?
Or were you just being clever

All the drought and all the rain
And trials in between
They have nothing on you my dear
Why are you so damn mean?

Chorus

You're shifting ways you're swaying
Tail Oh I fell for you
The way you prance the way you
Dance I loved you through and through
He's living in a house of cards
He's living in a house of cards
He's living in a house of cards
He's living in a house of cards

You took my love and threw it out
With no thought or concern
Rest assured I'll recover my pride
Like the seasons that turn

I may look back upon this time
As a lesson in life and love
And in time I'll remember you
As the one that I got rid of

Chorus

Chorus

I'm living in a house of cards
I'm living in a house of cards
I'm living in a house of cards
I'm living in a house of
Cards
