My House

Album: Playing With Fire (2016)
  • Well the sun goes up and the sun goes down
    And it looks the same on both sides of town
    (Really not that different)
    Yeah I give them a kiss and I tuck them in
    And get ready for tomorrow and I do it all over again
    (Really not that different)
    And I'm worried that I'm feeling when I'm staring at the ceiling, yeah might
    Be the same way you're feeling when you lay down tonight

    My house is your house
    Same dirty laundry, same dirty dishes
    My house is your house
    Air it all out and sort all the issues
    I love to sing, I love to dance
    We're making memories, we're making plans
    With the same prayers, same hurt
    Same love, same work
    The places we come from may feel so distant
    But we're really not that different
    (Sing it like your momma taught you)
    (And mi casa es tu casa)

    We hang on the bush, we hang on the stoop
    My boys shooting deer, our boys shooting hoops
    (Really not that different)
    It's in the way we live, it's in the way we talk
    I'm Jenny from the dirt road, I'm Jenny from the block
    (Really not that different)
    And I struggle through the day thinking there's no way
    I'm gonna make it through this
    And I say to myself "Baby no te preocupes"
    No don't you worry

    My house is your house
    Same dirty laundry, same dirty dishes
    My house is your house
    Air it all out and sort all the issues
    I love to sing, I love to dance
    We're making memories, we're making plans
    With the same prayers, same hurt
    Same love, same work
    Life is what it is and what it isn't
    But we're really not that different

    They say your fences make good neighbors
    Instead of building walls let's tear them to the ground
    Let 'em try to separate us
    Together they will never take us down

    My house is your house
    My house is your house
    Mi casa es tu casa

    My house is your house
    Same dirty laundry, same dirty dishes
    My house is your house
    Air it all out and sort all the issues
    I love to sing, I love to dance
    My house is your house
    Oh, really not that different
    My house is your house
    My house is your house Writer/s: JULIO REYES COPELLO, JENNIFER LOPEZ, SHANE MCANALLY, JENNIFER NETTLES, JOSH OSBORNE
