My house in Budapest
My hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

For you
You
I’d leave it all

My acres of a land
I have achieved
It may be hard for you to,
Stop and believe

But for you
You
I’d Leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My many artifacts
The list goes on
If you just say the words
I’ll up and run

Oh, to you
You
I’d leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My friends and family
They, don’t understand
They fear they’d lose so much
If, you took my hand

But, for you
You,
I’d lose it all.

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My house in Budapest
My hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful castillo

You
You
I’d leave it all.

    This song is written as if it's told to a lover. A lover who is lacking the approval of the friends and family of the narrator. He is willing to give up everything for the person he loves. Even, (in my opinion) not literally of course, his 'house in Budapest'. The narrator is exaggerating, about how amazing his house in Budapest is, showing the lover that he/she is very precious to the narrator. Also the narrator is also making clear that if his lover is close to him he doesn't need 'all of this', which could be pointing out to the disapproving friends and family.

    This is a love song written to a lover who most likely is seen as socially unfit for the narrator, as his friends and family do not necessarily approve. The singer is clearly in love willing to leave everything behind to be with his significant other. He will leave even his house in Budapest.
