PVRIS – My House lyrics

[Verse 1]
I feel you in these walls,
You're a cold air creeping in,
Chill me to my bones and skin.
I heard you down the hall,
But it's vacant when I'm looking in,
Who let you in?
You walk around like you own the place,
But you never say anything.
I caught you walking straight through my walls,
Guess it was all my fault.
I think I let you in.

[Chorus]
Never thought that I would feel like this,
Such a mess when I'm in your presence.
I've had enough, I think you've been making me sick,
Gotta get you out of my system.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
It's my soul,
It isn't yours anymore.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
Yeah, I think it's time to get out.

[Verse 2]
You're at my bedroom door,
Heard your footsteps on the floor,
Closer than ever before.
And now you're in my room,
You're a cold air creeping through,
Under sheets avoiding you.
You walk around I can hear you pace,
Circling my bed frame.
Now we're face to face,
Head on my pillowcase,
But darling, you can't stay.

[Chorus]
Never thought that I would feel like this,
Such a mess when I'm in your presence.
I've had enough, I think you've been making me sick,
Gotta get you out of my system.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
It's my soul,
It isn't yours anymore.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
Yeah, I think it's time to get out.

[Hook]
Haven't you heard?
I'm not yours anymore.
I'm not yours anymore.
It's my soul, and I think it's time to get out.
Haven't you heard?
I'm not yours anymore.
I'm not yours anymore.

[Bridge]
It's my house.

I feel you in these walls,
You're a cold air creeping in,
Chill me to my bones and skin.

[Outro]
Never thought that I would feel like this,
Such a mess when I'm in your presence.
I've had enough, I think you've been making me sick,
Gotta get you out of my system.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
It's my soul,
It isn't yours anymore.
It's my house,
And I think it's time to get out.
Yeah, I think it's time to get out.

    I think this song is about a guy that begins to dominate a girl. Takes over everything she is and her life and soul. She explains it like he is in her home. He let her in and take over, but now she is done and wants her soul back. Her life can no longer be his to do with. She takes herself back from his controlling hands. She's free and does not have to feel his presence everywhere she goes and she is able to breathe knowing she isn't confined to his chains.

    PVRIS has stated this song is themed around ghosts, which they tend to base quite some of their music and videos on. This is to be found in the "You're a cold air" and "I caught you walking straight through my walls"
    Though, to me it also feels like it is written about an abusive relationship. The part in which the narrator notices the influence of the significant other and is finding the courage to leave them. This is a very powerful moment in someone's life and hard to reach, since they're used to being scared. Verse 2, and especially the part "Under sheets avoiding you" shows this fear. That she is still singing about that shows that somewhere, this feeling of fear is still present, but the powerful realisation dominates this feeling. This all is perfectly in line with the power present in the music and song itself.
