A House That Catches Your Light

A few years ago my family had the experience of designing and building our own house. We had a contractor but did a ton of work ourselves - it was about the most exhausting and exhilarating year of this old timer`s life.This song is an attempt to capture some of those feelings.

A House That Catches Your Light

come with me
where waves of mountains
fall into fields of green
with a bundle of straw
and a handful of earth
we`ll raise a roof over our dreams

I`ll plane down my edges
you`ll remind me where the end is
bind me with love
when my back breaks
and though the roof may leak
and the hinges creak
the rainbow will not be disgraced
will not be disgraced

we`ll build a dream house a bird house
a blood sweat and tears house
where swallows rest from their flight
we`ll cook and carouse there
when nothings stirring but the mouse dear
we`ll make love `til the roosters start to fight
in a house that catches your light
a house that catches your light

come with me
where waves of mountains
fall into fields of green
with a bundle of straw
and a handful of earth
we`ll raise a roof over our dreams

sometimes I`ll get discouraged
try to quit in a flourish
step outside watch the thunder roll
but like the genie in his tomb
I`ve already seen these rooms
you will deck with the colours of your soul
the colours of your soul

we`ll build a dream house a bird house
a blood sweat and tears house
where swallows rest from their flight
we`ll cook and carouse there
when nothings stirring but the mouse dear
we`ll make love `til the roosters start to fight
in a house that catches your light
a house that catches your light
