Two Story House

 

We were just two kids fresh outta high school,

So overcome by love, we were breaking all the rules.

And I remember that moment, like it was yesterday;

It was late in the springtime, just at the start of May.

 

You got this look in your big brown eyes,

You said, “Baby, I've been thinkin, and I’ve got a little surprise.”

Then you said, “Come on and be my spouse,

We’ll have some kids, and we’ll buy ourselves,

A two story house.”

 

This is a house with two stories, one is you and one is me,

But it's here we start our new lives and we write our history.

And if these walls could talk, they’d have so much to say

About two lives joined together, under one roof, come what may..

 

It was the summer of our life, as I recall,

You were chasin’ a kid in diapers down the hall.

Two had become four,

And I could not have asked for more.

 

I Remember that night after we tucked our kids into their beds,

And we sat and talked for hours, about everything in our heads.

Later that night as you unbuttoned my blouse, 

I knew that we were happy here in this,

Two story house.

 

This is a house with two stories, one is you and one is me,

But it's here we start our new lives and we write our history.

And if these walls could talk, they’d have so much to say

About two lives joined together, under one roof, come what may..

 

Now here I stand today, on this snowy cold December,

I look around and cannot see the house that I remember.

How on earth did we drift so far apart?

We both see things so differently, just wish we could restart..

 

We have tried to talk it over, tried to mend the seams,

Tied to pinpoint when and how we shattered all our dreams.

But we can’t seem to find it, it’s elusive like a mouse,

That ate away our very souls, 

In this damn two story house.

 

This is a house with two stories, one is you and one is me,

But it's here we start our new lives and we write our history.

And if these walls could talk, they’d have so much to say

About two lives joined together, under one roof, come what may..
