Well there's something in us living
There's something you should know
There was a time for us to fall
Now it's time to grow
But you know it's not the way
That I intended it to be
rossing hearts and killing souls
And trying to get down to what's real

All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand won't you help me find a stone
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home

All I needed was your hand to hold
I spent so much time alone
I needed your direction
But we re-aligned my broken bones
Well they're running from a lifeless state
Somehow we lost our hold
All we have with us is change
Left over from what started out as gold

All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand - won't you help me find a stone
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home

This is what I give to you
It's flesh and blood
It's body and soul
Won't you take what's left of who I am
And try to see it whole

I'm holding you responsible for every word I say
If you feel the brokenness
Won't you try and look the other way
I never meant to be so low
I only wanted you to see
That time was healing someone else
But it's tearing apart the very heart of me

This is what I give to you
It's flesh and blood
It's body and soul
Won't you take what's left of who I am
And try to see it whole

All I ever wanted was to make this house a home
I let go of sinking sand - won't you help me find a stone
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
All I ever wanted
Was to make this house a home
So make this house a home
Make this house a home
Make this house a home

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
