  • Love is the glue
    That holds us together
    Faith and believing is the key
    This door of forever
    Baby, you and I
    We're every reason on earth
    Now and again it's always us
    Against the world, against the world

    When the rain fell and the flood came
    And the wind blew hard like a hammer on these walls
    We didn't crack or break or fall
    We built this house on a rock, on a rock
    This house on a rock, on a rock

    There is a time
    To face stormy weather
    But we are always standing strong
    A lifetime together
    Baby, you and I
    We don't regret anything
    Now it's the two of us again
    Against the wind, against the wind

    When the rain fell and the flood came
    And the wind blew hard like a hammer on these walls
    We didn't crack or break or fall
    We built this house on a rock, on a rock
    This house on a rock, on a rock

    Brick by brick we have set it up
    Oh man, if these walls could talk
    Bit by bit, based it on trust
    We gave it all we got

    When the rain fell and the flood came
    And the wind blew hard like a hammer on these walls
    We didn't crack or break or fall
    We built this house on a rock, on a rock
    This house on a rock, on a rock

    We built this house on a rock, on a rock
    We built this house on a rock, on a rock Writer/s: KLAUS MEINE, MARTIN HANSEN, MIKAEL ROLF LENNART ANDERSSON
