HOUSE OF CARDS Sung by Lori Dortono
Lyrics
HOUSE OF CARDS
© 2004 Mary Cole and Greg Garrett, Cole/Garrett Music.
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett.


I feel I'm walking thru' a House of Cards-
and one false move
and all we've built
will tumble down.
I'm caught here waiting for each tile to fall.
The walls close in.
We need God's Light
to warm our hearts.

O Lord!

We thought this house would last for years and years.
You see- this house was built upon a rock.
Now this house is falling round our ears.
O Lord, can we survive this cruel shock?


The scenes of smoke and fire have seared our brains.
Loved ones are lost.
We search the ash
in dreams, in hope.
And still the preachers preach of peace and love,
but good men know
that there are times
to right a wrong.

O Lord!

We thought this house would last for years and years.
You see- this house was built upon a rock.
Now this house is falling round our ears.
O Lord, can we survive this cruel shock?


I'm sitting in this House of Cards.
Friend, do you have glue?
Sitting in this House of Cards
-or maybe, just perhaps, a smile will do-
will do.


We thought this house would last for years and years.
You see- this house was built upon a rock.
Now this house is falling round our ears.
Dear Lord, help us survive this cruel shock-
this shock
