The House

Album: The House (2010)
  • Who is in that house?
    I opened the door to see
    Who is up the stairs?
    I’m walking up foolishly

    And at the end of the hall was a door
    And I got pulled in by a sound
    But I wish I’d never found

    In the privacy of your own room
    Where flowers in the wallpaper bloom
    Where I just don’t understand
    In the privacy of your room
    Look away now, look away now
    At the moon

    Is somebody watching me?
    You really shouldn’t see
    Why did you climb that last stair
    You found me unaware

    What I’m doing now it’s my own
    And I don’t want it to be known
    And it has to just remain

    In the privacy of my own room
    Where flowers in the wallpaper bloom
    Where you just don’t understand
    In the privacy of my room
    Look away now, look away now
    At the moon

    Puzzle me now with mystery clothes
    These apples I love, these apples I loath
    And always forgive the future to come
    For stealing the light from the sun Writer/s: KATIE MELUA
