  • These four walls have a got a story to tell
    The door is off the hinges, there's no wish in the well
    Outside the sky is coal black and the streets are on fire
    The picture windows cracked and there's no where to run
    I know, I know
    This house is not for sale

    I set each stone and I hammered each nail
    This house is not for sale
    Where memories live and the dream don't fail
    This house is not for sale
    Coming home
    I'm coming home

    Drove a spike into the ground and I staked my claim
    Standing on the dirt where they'll dig my grave
    Now what built these walls is in my veins
    No time for looking back, the wolf is at the door
    This heart, this soul
    This house is not for sale

    I set each stone and I hammered each nail
    This house is not for sale
    Where memories live and the dream don't fail
    This house is not for sale
    Coming home
    I'm coming home

    This house was built on trust
    That's what it is and always was
    No wrecking ball could knock it down
    This house was built on higher ground

    I set each stone and I hammered each nail
    This house is not for sale
    Where memories live and the dream don't fail
    This house is not for sale
    Coming home
    I'm coming home
    Coming home
    I'm coming home (this house is not for sale)
    Coming home
    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home (this house is not for sale) Writer/s: BILLY FALCON, JOHN M SHANKS, JON BON JOVI
