I was listening to my iPod last night...
I'd just gotten the Ocean Eyes album the day before.
A song came on, "If My Heart was House" by Owl City,
and it got me thinking...
If my heart was a house you'd be home...
If my heart was a house,
I'm not sure what it would be.
To some people, maybe it would be home.
I welcome them all the time, with open arms and a smile.
They live here, and I love them.
Maybe to others it would be a bed-and-breakfast.
They come when they feel like it,
Take some shelter and fuel,
Then take off again.
To a select few, it would be a fortress.
They're on the outside,
and I can't let them in.
They look to take down the fortress.
Do some see a violent dog on the lawn?
Maybe that's why some people are slow to knock on the door.
I promise he won't bite if you're good.
If my heart was a house...
Well, I guess you have to choose if it will be home.
