Bright Eyes – Devil In The Details lyrics

A house of cards
A supple heart
Is not a place to dwell

Now you have your cake
Don't hesitate
Come on just do it,
Come on just do it

Put it in your mouth
There is only now
Tomorrow has to wait

But know there's no backing out
This is gonna be reality
You can never dream it down

I have No way
Of telling
The two apart

Well I made amends
In the general sense
But the devil's in the details

And I know the cause
And I want to stop
But I can't do it,
I just can't do it

There was love I meant
There were accidents
So tell me which is which

'Cus I just can't work it out
But for memory and clarity
We had better write it down

I have no way
Of knowing the truth
With time dissolves

I put the past into the ground
I saw the future as a cloud
If there's still time to turn around
I'm going to

Its just one day I fell asleep
And **now all day all night I dream**
I am the first one I deceive
If I can make myself believe
The rest is easy...
