David Crosby – That House lyrics

That House (5: 25)
Words: David Crosby
Music: cpr

You could have heard a pin drop in that house
Someone was crying somewhere
Into a pillow that it wasn't fair
It got lost somewhere
You couldn't take your heart out in that house

It just might not want to beat again
A storm is pounding on the roof outside
Like something died

You couldn't take you heart out in that house
Water dripping in the sink
I'm tired of crying you start to think
The sound leads to the kitchen
Kitchen leads to door and you think I must not live here anymore

Repeat Chorus (3x)

Then you walk
Walk on down to the street
Keep walking

You put one foot down, in
Front of the other (repeat)

David Crosby: Lead Vocal, Acoustic Guitar
