This house is a holy house
Always under construction
People come in
Looking for truth
Or just their own reflection
Depending on what they find
They pat my back or they speak their mind
I wanna live in a simple house
I wanna live
In a simple house
CHORUS
I wanna live in a simple house
I wanna live
I wanna live in a simple house
I wanna live in a simple house
This house looks the best
When it's not cluttered with opinions
When only the words from the Landlord's mouth
Have absolute dominion
From His lips, His lips alone
I want to furnish my humble home
I wanna live in a simple house
I wanna live
CHORUS(2X)
I want wisdom in the walls
Understanding will weatherproof
I want love to be the theme
From the basement to the roof
Not enough room for second hand news
Can't build this house on human how to's
I wanna see His touch in every room
I wanna know this house is built in truth
I wanna live in a simple house
I wanna live
CHORUS
(repeat chorus and fade)

    The meaning i believe is our hearts should not be cluttered with things of this life... Religion or anything else but jesus and his truth.
