(intro)

G         Gsus     G          Gsus  G            Gsus      G      Gsus
  I grew up in a house like this,    we knew the groan of every stair
G         Gsus          G        Gsus  G         Gsus           G       Gsus
  All the walls seemed to listen in,    all the years seemed to take up air
C(9)       C(9)           D       G/B  C(9)      C(9)     D   G/B
  When you dreamed it was of the wind    blowing cold and hard
C(9)       C(9)       D           G/B    Am7   Am7      D   D   D   D
  In those dreams you thought you lived   in a house of cards

G  Gsus  G  Gsus  
(instrumental)

I grew up in a town like this, we knew the names of every street
On the surface it looked so safe, but it was perilous underneath
That's the place you shoved your doubts and hid your ugly scars
God forbid if word got out about your house of cards

C           C         C     C        D       D        G    G/F#
  And now I feel the wind about to blow, and baby I'm so scared
Em         Em          Bm7             Bm7         Am7
  You're repeating the past instead of letting it go
      Am7     G      G
  And I don't wanna go back there

C(9) C(9) D  G/B   C(9) C(9) D  G/B   C(9) C(9) D  G/B   Am7  Am7  D  D
(guitar solo)
C(9) C(9) D  G/B   C(9) C(9) D  G/B   C(9) C(9) D  G/B   Am7  Am7  D  D  D  D
(guitar solo)
G  Gsus   G  Gsus   G  Gsus   G  Gsus
(instrumental)

Now we're standing here face to face, afraid to move or else
I wanna prop up this fragile place, I can't do it all by myself
'Cause when we dream, it's of the wind, blowing cold and hard
When we wake up we still live in a house of cards

'Cause when we dream, it's of the wind, blowing cold and hard
When we wake up we still live in a house of cards

G  Gsus   G  Gsus   G  Gsus   G  Gsus
(repeat and fade)
