lyrics

A house with four convincing walls
And a sky of cyan
The only thing that’s missing
A little baby cryin’
We’ll move the dust into the dustbin
Move the bin to storage
No more nights out in the woods
And no more stealing porridge

Let’s turn this house away from house
Into a home away from home

The backyard filled with dog toys
We’ll get a dog someday
The handcuffs on the bedpost
Still there from the foreplay
We are domesticated souls
We eat our meat off cellophane
The alphabet on the fridge
Missing the letter A

Let’s turn this house away from house
Into a home away from home

I have a home
I have a place to lay my head
But now I’m home away from home
Asleep in bed
In my bed away from bed

My other set of keys
Are on my other key ring
Should I go there or stay here?
Depends on how I’m feeling
You say you love me and I know that you really mean it
If there’s a better place to hang my hat
I’ve never seen it

Let’s turn this house away from house
Into a home away from home
I have a home
I have a place to live my life
But now I’m home away from home
Living my life
With my wife away from wife

Some day the two of you might meet
But I really doubt it
I never mix up your names
I’m really good about it
We’ll move the furniture inside the rooms
The way we like it
My kids won’t be around to spoil our perfect
Peace and quiet

Let’s turn this house away from house
Into a home away from home
