Oh the rain is falling And the wild wind roars It'll shake your windows And rattle your doors Oh blow down this house of cards Blow down this house of cards
And they're washing the streets (blow blow down) With the blood of your kind (blow blow down) Ah just look over your shoulder (blow blow down) They are right behind (blow blow down) Oh blow down this house of cards Blow down this house of cards
And the birds are wheeling Up above your head And your days are numbered And you're as good as dead This is a very fine house Of great renown But it's cracked and it's shaking It goes tumbling, tumbling, tumbling down
Blow blow down this house of cards Blow down this house of cards Blow down this house of cards Oh blow down this house of cards

Lif from Quemado, NmThe only song on the whole Band of Joy album where you get an echo of Robert Plant as he was. His voice is still great, but through much of the album it sounds like he's saving it - where in his youth, he spent it freely, gave it away to all of us.
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
