When the sun sweeps over the horizon
When the moon hangs heavy on the land
When my heart hangs heavy on your memory, my love,
I will sing the words you may not understand

That it doesn't take a boat to cross the desert
That it doesn't take a stone to swim the sea
And for all of the phone calls you never returned
Well it doesn't take a house to fall on me

Now for all of my time in seventh heaven
And for all of your attention paid to me
And for all of the vows that we never exchanged
I just thank the Lord that I woke up to see

That it doesn't take the earth to move a mountain
That it doesn't take a lock to hold a key
And for all of the letters that I only wrote
Well it doesn't take a house to fall on me

Did you read your future in your tea leaves in the morning?
Look to find me gone?
Dreams that come by only for an instant
Then like smoke they will be gone

When the starlings strike a note at daybreak
When the blackbird sings a reverie
And in all of my dreams, I imagine, my love,
That they whisper words you never spoke to me

That it doesn't take a cloud to build a castle
That it doesn't take a jury to agree
And unless you're confined to a hospital bed
Well it doesn't take a house to fall on me

Once I stood you in good stead with my acquaintance
Once you stood on my shoulders to see
But for all of the times when you plain stood me up
It doesn't take a house to fall
Doesn't take a house to fall
Doesn't take a house to fall on me
