Owl City – House Wren lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m a house wren hunting for a house
I haven’t found one, I'm on the lookout
For a home to call my own
A private residence

[Verse 2]
Through the grapevine I heard an empty gourd
Is hangin up somewhere on some old lady’s porch
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go
To my new humble abode

[Chorus]
I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
'Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
'Cause as far as I know
I am halfway home

[Verse 3]
I’m a house wren who needs a summer home
A country farm house or a quiet bungalow
Not too big, and not too small
First-rate real estate

[Verse 4]
I got my eyes peeled for a window box
An old tin can, a boot or a flower pot
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go
To my new humble abode

[Chorus]
I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
'Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
'Cause as far as I know
I am half way home

[Verse 5]
I’m a house wren still hunting for a house
But I got a song and a lot to sing about
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go (off I’ll go)
Because you know

[Chorus]
I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
'Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
I’m on top of the world
And it’s a beautiful thing

I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
'Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
'Cause as far as I know
I am half way home
I am half way home
