I went to your house
Walked up the stairs
I opened your door without ringing the bell
I walked down the hall
Into your room
Where I could smell you
And I
Shouldn't be here
Without permission
Shouldn't be here

Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon

I took off my clothes
Put on your robe
Went through your drawers and I found your cologne
Went down to the den
Found your CD's
And I played your Johnny
And I
Shouldn't stay long
You might be home soon
I Shouldn't stay long

Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon

I burned your incense
I ran a bath
I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
It said hello love
I love you so love
Meet me at midnight
And no
It wasn't my writing
I better go soon
It wasn't my writing

So forgive me love
If I cry in your shower
So forgive me love
For the salt in your bed
So forgive me love
If I cry all afternoon

    General CommentWhy would nobody have commented this!? shame on you alanis fans. This song is overlooked being a bonus track, but she proves she doesn't even need the music. It tells a story of a situation many of us have been before and really depicts rawness of human emotion in the way that only she can

    General CommentThis song makes me so sad. She gets so emotional when she performs it. I don't get why any man would fuck her over. She's such a beautiful person. Probably a load to handle but well worth it. I imagine her to be a woman that doesn't get plain.

    General CommentI totally agree that this is proof she doesn't need background "anything"-(music-backup singers). She is gifted and at such a young age. This song breaks my heart EVERY time I hear it. It is REAL to her and she MAKES it real for each of us. Thank you, Alanis, for giving us, your fans, the gift of your genius!!

    General CommentThe reason there are so few comments is this song is called "YOUR HOUSE" and that's where the comments are. It's NOT called "Forgive Me Love."
