House of Love

from Four Ambient Tales by Billie Ray Martin

supported by


I've seen her walking
in the house of love
and she was
gonna drown
down to the will
of a beggar
in my dreams
I've seen her walking
in the house of love
it's a drag to get back

oh she doesn't care if I die
oh she knows a well paid lie
I'm really wanting her
to give me some peace of mind
oh, but her days are upside down

I see her walking
in the house of love
and there is talk (talk)
they're gonna sell her
to the richest
they gather (gather)
to buy her pride

nothing's gonna keep
my dreams from waking me up, no
they're gonna tell
me a nightmare

oh how sweaty red lights
are gonna switch her face on
how am I gonna get through the night
I'm gonna linger on
and I'm gonna be damned to, damned to, damned to see her

walking, yeah
in the house of love
and I swear
so I swear
she's got to pay for every bottle (she's got to)
so I swear
in the house of love, yeah
in the house of love, yeah
