Lyrics
Here in this shell of a house,
This house that is struggling to be.
Falling through the hall,
Coming straight through the wall,
Is hope staring down at me,
But there's nothing you can see
Sadness will flow down a cheek
Courage stand out like a tree
Joy, joy is as bright
As a comet in flight.
But hope isn't easy to see.

Take care of this house
Keep it from harm
If bandits break in sound the alarm
Care for this house
Shine it by hand
And keep it so clean
The glow can be seen all over the land.

Be careful at night,
Check all the doors,
If someone makes off with a dream
The dream will be yours.
Take care of this house
Be always on call
For this house is the home of us all.

Be careful at night
Check all the doors
If someone makes off with a dream
The dream will be yours.
Take care of this house
Be always on call,
For this house its the home of us all.
