This house
She's holding secrets
I got my change behind the bed

In a coffee can,
I throw my nickels in
Just in case I have to leave

And I will go if you ask me to
I will stay if you dare
And if I go I'm goin shameless
I'll let my hunger take me there

This house
She's quite the talker
She creeks and moans
She keeps me up

And the photographs
Know I'm a liar
They just laugh as I burn her down

And I will go if you ask me to
I will stay if you dare
And if I go I'm goin on fire
Let my anger take me there

The shingles man they're shaking
The back door's burning through
This house she's quite the keeper
Quite the keeper of you

I will go if you ask me to
I will stay if you dare
And if I go, I'm goin crazy
I'll let my darlin take me there

    General CommentI love the reference to the photographs.

    "And the photographs Know I'm a liar, They just laugh as I burn her down"
    That is brilliant.

    General CommentTo me, this song has always been about trying to keep it together in an up and down relationship, even though you have done some arguable things, which the house has bared witness to.

    The house won't tell.

    Just in case the girl finds out, this man is prepared to leave with his head held high.

    Looking at the photographs only reminds him of his secrets.
