lyrics

this house needs a paint job
it’s been standing 100 years
all these lives moving through
voices filling its ears
make this house a home                         
little weary, little broken
from hearts roaming
through its rooms
make this house a home

this house needs a sweeping   
it’s filled with dust                 
like a heart that’s abandoned
will turn to rust
doors that stick                      
when they should open
they should open up again
and make this house a home
pour a strong foundation
a place to stay    
make this house a home

mend the fence
wash the floor
come right in
shoes at the door

make this house a home       
it’s been standing 100 years     
all this love dispelling old fears
make this house a home

light a candle replace the glass   
make a wish build it to last
make this house a home
it’s been standing 100 years
all this life laughter and tears
make this house a home
make this house a home
make this house a home
