Human Like A House

This song is by The Finches.

New front door, same address

Same front step, same back-porch

Geraniums to the terrace

Sold my shoes to pay the rent

I won't be needing them

I won't be leaving too soon



Oh my dear, do undress

You look so different in those new shoes

To impress someone you have never met

Someone you already know

Is waiting behind my front door



And by the door you know I'll wait

Oh, by the window, by the gate

I'm waiting for your sound



So softly, dear, don't hesitate

The lion looms along the lake

And swallows every sound

But oh, I wish that I could take

That simple lonely way

That long cold lonely way

But these days it takes more than two feet

It takes four to fill the road

I fend and swing the axe at for



I've trampled all over the place

Swung to and fro and still no state

Has held me in its bounds



But by the bridge I'd like to stay

Oh, by the ocean, by the bay

And hope that you'll come around



Oh, my dear, do undress

You look so different in those new clothes

To impress someone you have never met

I'm the one needing you

I'm the one with no shoes



So by the door you know I'll wait

Oh, looking out the golden gate

She yawns into the morning...
