lyrics

We went out and built a new house
Along that winding country road
My mother blessed me with a brother, and another
All the love I came to know

My sister left us for the city
The day she turned just twenty-two
Well, through the rain her face appeared the same
But her heart, well we knew was turning blue

You held your ghosts out on nothing
Then take your seat upon your throne
One day you'll be the queen of something
But this old house here ain't a home

I'm told it gets cold by September
So we'll warm our bones beside the fire
Your humbled thoughts have left me here to do some thinking
You lack the voice that we require

Then we got married in the winter
The snow fell on your white dress
Well I held her hand, but couldn't bring myself to kiss her
This whole wedding was a mess

You held your ghosts out on nothing
Then take your seat upon your throne
One day you'll be the queen of something
But this old house here ain't a home
