House Where We All Live Lyrics - The Veils

There's an old child's swing set on the lawn 

And an ivied wall lured by the years 

A neckerchiefed spaniel patrols the swamp 

And drinks from the garden of our tears 

 

There are many rooms and many floors 

A billion up and a billion down 

I'm not sure God knows we're here 

Most nights It keeps to Itself 

 

There's a widow's wing and an unloved wing 

On the unwanted floor towards the rear 

I've tried to memorize their names 

But no sooner one dies than another appears 

 

There were Bible verses all down the halls 

But they soon got replaced with explicit cartoons 

There are lipstick marks on all our collars 

And the sign on the gate reads 'Come back soon' 

 

We all do our best to keep it clean 

But some guy's minds are like a sieve 

Sometimes it's a little hard to sleep at night 

In the house where we all live 

 

Now when I walk the grounds at dawn 

I hear the sound of far off bells 

I lay my feet out in the reeds 

And dream of being somewhere else 

 

So, boy, next time you are in town 

Just ring the bell and I'll let you in 

I don' t think you are going to need directions 

Just ask for the house where we all live 

 

I wish you could see this moment 

I wish you could see this moment 

I wish you could see this moment
