​Open House

This song is by Red Herring and appears on the album The Sooner You Accept It (2006).

Remember that time when,
We both went sleddin'
Behind the trailer,
I pulled you right until you went

Through the siding,
And although we tried to hide it.
We might have gotten away,
If we hadn't gone and told on ourselves.
Well, oh well.
We've both grown a lot,
Since the time I put your underwear all over the frontyard.

And that is a true sign of love.
One which only
A big brother can express.

What I'm really trying to say,
Is that I think it's been
These memories,
That got us here.

Open House!
It's time to open the doors to the world,
But first I'll have to see some ID.

Open House!
I guess I'm still not sure,
About when,
You went and caught up to me.

Singin' along in my car,
With our lungs all at the top.
The right songs,
The right words,
At all the right times.
Die!
Like we almost did that time,
We were Rollerbladin'
Let me refresh your mind.

We were lightnin' fast,
Skatin' towards each other,
All the time,
Watched by mother.
I guess that day,
We learned my right from your left.

What I'm really trying to say,
Is that I think it's been
These memories,
That got us here.

Open House!
It's time to open the doors to the world,
But first I'll have to see some ID.

Open House!
I guess I'm still not sure,
About when,
You went and caught up to me.

Oh, but be careful now,
Before you know it.
You'll end up as old as me.

But in the meantime,
Go enjoy it,
But please do so carefully.

'Cause circa 1984,
Big Brother
Is watching quite faithfully.

But hey,
It's your time.
I'm glad I've been along for the ride.

I guess I say,
Happy Whole-Rest-Of-Your-Life Day.

I guess I say,
I didn't get the memo,
But you went and grew up anyway.

I guess I say,
Sam, you're my sister,
And I wouldn't have you any other way.
