House Of Cards Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's late at night the world's asleep
And I'm trying not to think
I take some pills 'cuz my mind bleeds
I'm thinking what is wrong with me

Because the only thing I know
About honesty
Is every lie I've told
That you believed

I'm afraid to be alone
I'm afraid that one day you'll find out

And you'll be amazed at the secrets I keep
You'll be amazed at my mouth full of lies
Well, I'm too afraid to come clean
'Cuz my life's still free in the house of cards

Now I can't look you in your eyes
Because the guilt is killing me
I try to disconnect my heart again
Just so I can breathe

I wanna be myself again
But I just can't 'cuz

I'm afraid to be alone
I'm afraid that one day you'll find out

And you'll be amazed at the secrets I keep
You'll be amazed at my mouth full of lies
Well, I'm too afraid to come clean
'Cuz my life's still free in the house of cards

It's such a shame what I've become
After years of breaking down
My whole life has come undone
'Cuz I'm trying to fake it all

And I know that you love someone
But that someone isn't me
Well, [Incomprehensible]

And you'll be amazed at the secrets I keep
You'll be amazed at my mouth full of lies
Well, I'm too afraid to come clean
'Cuz my life's still free in the house of cards

You'll be amazed
You'll be amazed
