lifeblood: songs: lyrics: make this house a home


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
