Household Story

lyrics

I’ve stayed awake long enough I think
It took me time to understand why I couldn’t sleep
Counting sheep and deep breathing didn’t help in anything
My eyes don’t want to close tight, as the stars still burn bright
I went outside and stared at the night sky,
But as my eyes were looking up I was thinking
If I'm happy here, if this is what I really want?

And wondering how everything could be better if
I choose to move from this place
From the house we’ve built, that is decaying

If these walls could talk
They would tell me the truth
About what happened, when you
Let another man embrace your heart
And sleep in our bed
I wasn’t there, but I was always thinking of you
When I came back, I noticed that some things had changed
Your shifty eyes,and your cold lips they have betrayed all of your lies

And I wanted to forgive you
But I know that one day or another
Your true colours will begin to show

A new start, new air to breathe, a better life I think,
That'll bring me back to sleep
I will never, be that kind of man, smiling every time
Just trying to pretend everything is going fine
I won’t go blind, I just want to live this life
Without thinking about
What you could've done behind my back
So I can finally sleep at night
