lyrics

Beneath a tree that's stood a hundred years,
Along a block built on sweat and tears,
Leading to a quiet place,
Lift the latch, push the gate. Our home awaits,
Take the stairs, elevate...

We'll paint the door a shade of red
And sweep the narrow halls.
Oh, who'd have thought we'd have a place all on our own?
We'll set the cornerstone.

The floorboard creaks, getting worse with time,
Dusty mantle sitting bare inside,
But not condemned to disrepair,
Needing tender care it can work, I swear, somehow, somewhere.
About our humble stoop I'll follow you...

We'll patch the roof over our heads
And mend the window sill.
We'll lay the bricks, a foundation all our own,
We'll set the cornerstone.

We'll make this house a home
And set the cornerstone.
