lyrics

the house i live in now
I am not the first to call these old bricks home
and the books you liked so much
they are not mine; they were left here by my pred.
and the sounds we hear at night are probably just ghosts
because there's one thing i do know...

people will have sex in your bed before it is your bed
and baby you are not the first to have sex in my bed because
people have had sex in my bed before it was my bed
and babies have been made here that do not share our heritage
who will have sex in your bed before it is your bed?
there were probably 20 or 30 others there before you, before you now

I could change the sheets,
but that bright yellow stain,
it's stubborn and stays next to the brown one,
that reminds me of girly blood.
sometimes, late at night, I swear I hear these eerie moans
like something out of a Patrick Swayze romance
and one time, late at night
a ghost came and tried to blow me off
and I woke up crying

because people will have sex in your bed before it is your bed
and baby you are not the first to have sex in my bed because
people have had sex in my bed before it was my bed
and babies have been made here that do not share our heritage
who will have sex in your bed before it is your bed?
prolly better get a cleaning lady in there or something, before you now

because I still believe
there is something in these sheets
blue canary nights in the hallway, by the light
as you close your eyes imagine the darkness
is warm and alive with a thousand ex-tenants

Beware of face melting guitar riffs. ... more
