Album: Caustic Love (2014)
  • Hey, la, la, la
    Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
    If the cement don't stick
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!

    Hmm, now that I'm young I just do what I do
    I don't second guess too much.
    Shed my ties and I'm not that wise
    I'm all grown up as such.
    But all the talk about the ring and the baby
    Gets me every time
    Am I big enough, strong enough to walk along your line?
    Yeah, baby

    Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
    If the cement don't stick
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!

    You see, I'm always on the hustle
    That I don't know just how good I get it
    That it's plenty of men out there with money and muscle
    Look at these hips, baby, don't you forget them
    Oh, but the curls will go, the money will spend
    What we left within the end?
    She's more than happy, she's taken her play
    I'm saying, 'who's that bitch with my second name? '

    Oh, he's building a house so we can fall at the first brick
    If the cement don't stick
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!

    Yeah, baby, truth be told
    I'm only trying to keep my head above the water
    Responsibility, turn on monogamy,
    I'm not a father, child
    Are you a mother, are you?
    Uh, my pride and joy
    Yeah, you, you are my pride and joy!

    Oh, building a house so we can fall at the first brick
    If the cement don't stick
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!
    Yeah, baby,
    Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
    If the cement don't stick
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there!
    But I've been told
    That it only gets harder from there! Writer/s: PAOLO GIOVANNI NUTINI
