House With No Doors Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was there in my trailer down at the jobsite
The day that this stranger walked in
His face looked so sad and he carried a set of blueprints

And as I unrolled them, the first thing I noticed
That there were no doors in the plans
He said, If you build this for me then when she comes back
She'll never be able to leave me again

I said, If I did and she ever came back
Friend, tell me how would she get in?
It would just be a prison that I locked you in"

"If you couldn't leave you'd never know if there
Was someone to love you the way that she didn't before
There's two things that I know for sure
It's that you can't make a woman feel something she don't
And you can't build a house with no doors"

For a while he was quiet, I could tell he was thinking
I thought I just ruined his day
I just couldn't bear to see this man's last hope slip away

So I thought real fast and I started talking
Said, Buddy, we've tried this before
And if there ain't one, shell make one, either way she'll run
And leave you a house with a hole for a door

I said, If I did and she ever came back
Friend, tell me how would she get in?
It would just be a prison that I locked you in"

"If you couldn't leave you'd never know if there
Was someone to love you the way that she didn't before
If there's two things that I know for sure
It's that you can't make a woman feel something she don't
And you can't build a house with no doors"

No you can't make a woman feel something she don't
And you can't build a house with no doors
