Paolo Nutini


Hey, la, la
La, la
Yeah
Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Hmm, now that I'm young I just do what I do
I don't second guess too much.
Shed my ties and I'm not that wise
I'm not all grown up as such.
But all the talk about the ring and the baby
Gets me every time
Am I big enough, strong enough, to walk along your line?
Yeah, baby

Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

You say, I'm always on the hustle
That I don't know just how good I get it
And that there's plenty of men out there with money and muscle
"Look at these hips, baby, don't you forget them"
Oh, but the curves all go, the money we'll spend
What we're left with in the end,
Oh she's wantin' half and she's staking her claim
I'm saying, 'who's that bitch with my second name? '

Oh, cause building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Yeah, baby, truth be told
I'm only trying to keep my head above the water
Responsibility, eternal monogamy,
Ah I'm not a father, child
Are you a mother, are you?
Oh, my pride and joy
Yeah you, you are my pride and joy!

Yeah, building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
Yeah, baby,
Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
