Jorn – House Of Cards lyrics

[Jorn Lande/Tore Moren]

It's late at night
And I'm watching the news
There's blood on the screen
And I felt guilty somehow
Escaping from reality
When I close my eyes
Don't wanna see them die
Hear the children cry

There's been so much trouble
Too many sad songs have been played
And when you think you've found something real
It's suddenly so deceiving
Hard to believe in changes
It's a faded paradise
And I'm running out of strength

In this house made of cards
Smoke is rising
Playing in the fire
Change the mode - crack the code
Power overload
Sos - Emergency
No one seems to find the key

I've been seeking my fortune
For too many years
Living on the edge - racing time
But it never took me far
Never got to reach that star
And I'm running out of strength

In this house made of cards
Smoke is rising
Playing in the fire
Change the mode - crack the code
Power overload
Sos - Emergency
Will we ever find the key
What will the future be
I wanna see

We are living on the dark side
In a cold time - searching for the light
Stranded - and we will stand the fight
Must be hope in sight
The wind will blow and seeds will grow
And I know that someday we'll be there

In this house made of cards
Smoke is rising
Playing in the fire
Change the mode - crack the code
Power overload
Sos - Emergency
Gotta find the key

Save me - want me
These are stormy days
Playing in the fire

We are living on the dark side
In a cold time - searching for the light
