MAKE THIS HOUSE A HOME
Indigo Girls


Well, there's something in us living
There's something you should know
There was a time for us to fall
Now it's time to grow
But you know it's not the way
That I intended it to be
Crossing hearts and killing souls
And trying to get down to what's real
All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand - won't you help me find a stone?
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home
All I needed was your hand to hold
I spent so much time alone
I needed your direction
But we re-aligned my broken bones
Well, they're running from a lifeless state
Somehow we lost our hold
All we have with us is change
Left over from what started out as gold
All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand - won't you help me find a stone?
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home
This is what I give to you
It's flesh and blood
It's body and soul
Won't you take what's left of who I am
And try to see it whole?
I'm holding you responsible for every word I say
If you feel the brokenness
Won't you try and look the other way
I never meant to be so low
I only wanted you to see
That time was healing someone else
But it's tearing apart the very heart of me
This is what I give to you
It's flesh and blood
It's body and soul
Won't you take what's left of who I am
And try to see it whole?
All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand - won't you help me find a stone?
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home
So make this house a home
make this house a home
make this house a home
