Back to Love's The Only House lyrics

Love's The Only House

I was standin' in the grocery store line
The one they marked 'Express'
When this woman came through with about 25 things
And I said, "Don't you know that more is less?"

She said, "This world is movin' so fast
I just get more behind every day
And every mornin' when I make my coffee
I can't believe my life's turned out this way"

All I could say was
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain

He was walkin' by the other day and I said
"Hey, baby, how you been?
Yeah, I got me a little girl now and she's 4 years old
And she's got her daddy's little grin"

"And you only wanted what you can't have
And, baby, you can't have me now, I gave my heart to another
Yeah, I'm a mother and he's a father and we're a family
And we've got each other and I found out the hard way that"

Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain

You drive three miles from all this prosperity
Down across the river and you see a ghetto there
And we got children walkin' around with guns
And they got knives and drugs and pain to spare

And here I am in my clean white shirt
With a little money in my pocket and a nice warm home
And we got teenagers walkin' around
In a culture of darkness livin' together alone

All I can say is
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain

And I can't explain it and I can't understand
But I'll come down and get my hands dirty
And together we'll make a stand

Somewhere 'cross the parkin' lot, some bands playin' out of tune
City streets are gonna burn if we don't do somethin' soon
And senorita can't quit cryin', baby's due now any day
Don Juan left, got sick of tryin', no one there to show him the way

She came down to the grocery store and she said
"I, I wanna buy a little carton of milk but I don't have any money"
I said, "Hey, I'll cover you, honey, 'cause the pain's gotta go somewhere
Yeah the pain's gotta go someplace, so come on down to my house"

Don't you know that
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain

Don't you know that
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain
