lyrics

Little House of Cards

Now they are written in black and white
All the words we never dared to give voice to
To say loud and clear
All what we don't want to hear
This was once our golden crown
This low cropped tree
This was once our green garden
This lonesome, barren soil

Look how fragile we were
Look how fragile we are

Don't let us end, let us begin
Don't turn the last page, turn the first
Let us walk through a wide and green garden
And watch how flowers grow and butterflies fly

I swore I wouldn't ever be
That stranger I now see in your eyes
Quietly time has changed you and me
And everything around us
This was once our safe home
This little house of cards
This was once our romantic road
This unnamed street

Look how fragile we were
Look how fragile we are

Don't let us end, let us begin
Don't turn the last page, turn the first
Let us walk through a wide and green garden
And watch how flowers grow and butterflies fly
