lyrics

If these wall could talk
Oh the screams we’d hear
If these doors could feel
Vengeance we would surely fear

But please, open up my door and have a look inside...

Shag rug on the floor but
Hard wood down below I
have stories you would not believe (baby)
Red brick on the wall (baby)
Not deep, just for show (baby)
I’ll line my way into your heart

And if these lights never shine
Its cause they could see
And if this house were human
It’s be as jaded as me

But please, open up my door and have a look inside...

Shag rug on the floor but
Hard wood down below
I have stories you would not believe (baby)
Red brick on the wall (baby)
Not deep, just for show (baby)
I’ll line my way into your heart

I don’t have to wait for you to show me how
To make this house so much better, sweetie I already know
Just paint over these cracks, I’m sure that they’ll heal
And with these corner-store fixes, I will no longer feel

But please open up my door and let the sun pour in
The warmth will loosen up my paint and dislodge my sins
And dislodge my sins...

(baby)
Shag rug on the floor but (baby)
Hard wood down below (baby)
I have stories you would not believe (come in)
Red brick on the wall (baby)
Not deep, just for show (baby)
I’ll line my way into your heart (come in)
(baby, baby, come in)
