"Playing House" as written by Patrick J Grossi and Thomas Krell....
This is getting tough sitting here waiting for you.
And I think you've had enough cause I know that it's wrong.
This is going on, going on for way too long
I think you aught to know I just can't wait

Oh I'm trying to find you oh I'm trying to reach your God
I don't even know just what I want
I don't even know just what I want

Maybe we're just playing house just 'cause it feels good
Maybe we're just playing house just 'cause it feels good

That don't make it good for anybody
Don't want to be in love just with any body
I'm tired of being just Mr. Anybody
So baby come with me and let's just make a body, between us
I need you to see me-
Girl I've been waiting please don't leave me needing
When you want I will always be fair.
Always

Oh I'm trying to find you oh I'm trying to reach your God
I don't even know just what I want
I don't even know just what I want

Maybe we're just playing house just 'cause it feels good
Just 'cause it feels good

    Lyric CorrectionIf you think you're ready
    I will lead you down
    To a field where it's better
    Somewhere underground

    All good things in time
    I know we'll be fine
    Buried underneath
    You are all I see (x3)

    All good things in time
    I know we'll be fine
    Buried underneath
    You are all I see (x3)

    This is such a beautiful song. I think it's about God reaching out to one of us.

    "If you think you're ready" - God asking if you've accepted him into your heart
    "I will lead you down" - I think it's a reference to "down the path"...leading you down the right path
    "To a field where it's better" - Heaven
    "Somewhere underground" - NO IDEA

    "All good things in time" - Wait for him to take you
    "I know we'll be fine" - the two of you can get through anything
    "Buried underneath" - through your human exterior
    "You are all I see" - All God sees is your soul

    General CommentI like to think this one is about two men in love, afraid to admit to themselves or each other. The structure of the lyrics works very well if you interpret it this way. There is a suspense, what is it that is buried underneath, why does the other person have to be ready for it, why is there a need for the singer to say "I know we'll be fine"? It seems as if it's something ifrightening, but also important and good, "all good things in time". And then the singer confesses, that what is buried underneath is the fact that "you are all I see".

    General CommentOk - both the posted lyrics and the correction are wrong.

    If you think you're ready
    I will lead you now
    To the field where it's buried
    Somewhere underground

    All good things in time
    I know we'll be fine
    Buried underneath
    You are all I see

    And in response to aardvarksauce...

    The line "...to the field where it's buried somewhere underground" is separated when written out, but is one statement. Not only does he not say "better," but "somewhere underground" is not its own random detached series of words. You can think of the entire first stanza as one sentence.
