"Little House of Savages" as written by and Peter M Bauer Paul C Maroon....
Somebody's waiting for me at home
Somebody's waiting for me at home

I should've known
I should've known

And somebody's got a car outside
Somebody's got a car outside
Let's take a ride
Let's take a ride

Somebody's waiting for me at home
Somebody's waiting for me at home
I should have known
I should have known
Here we go

And somebody's got a car outside
Somebody's got a car outside
Let's take a ride

I know that it's late but I've nowhere to go
Somebody's waiting for me at home
I should've chose
I should've chose

'Cause you can run and have your fun
But don't come around when she get's home

Oh baby, don't go home

There's a door in my heart
And it's open tonight
Come on in I got you tonight
Come on in I got you tonght

I should've told
I should've told

'Cause you can run and have your fun
But don't come around when she gets home

    My InterpretationI think the lyrics refer to the subject's underappreciation of their ex-girlfriend and are an expression of regret for not investing enough time into a relationship and, arguably, for being unfaithful in it as well.

    General Commenti LOVE this song. im suprised the Walkmen havnt hit it big yet, they are real talented and the Singer even Sounds a little bit like a scratchy Bono. I feel like this song might be about the girl hes cheating on his girlfriend with ?

    General CommentI agree with the comment about him sounding like Bono, but at times he also sounds like Bob Dylan.

    General Commentactually, the lyric should read - "i know that it's late but i don't wanna go", opposed to "And noone is waiting for the girl, wanna go". It makes alot more sense to the meaning of the song. It's about a guy cheating and he doesn't wanna leave cause he knows he'll have to face his girlfriend.
