music and lyrics by McKain Lakey


This is the house that we built.
It was over before it began.
And I see my fingerprints in each little stone,
but I'm done with the best that I can.

This is the house that we built.
We carefully walled off the sky.
but the planes overhead as we lay in our bed
left us no other choice but to fly.

This is the house that we built.
We never quite finished the trim.
But we still we happy most of the time,
cuz he loved me like crazy and I needed him.

And I don't know where we are now.
Everything happened so fast-
some smoke, and an echo,
a voice through a radio,
a silence that settled us into the past.
The past.

This is the house that we built.
We left you a window to try,
some stones for your head, and a dusty dirt bed,
and two lifetimes of memories in case you pass by.
Pass by.
