To Build a Home
The Cinematic Orchestra Lyrics


There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home

'Cause, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me

And, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time
To leave and turn
To dust

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home

And I built a home
For you
For me
Until it disappeared
From me
From you
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the colour of green
Ground had arose and passed its knees
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world

When the gust came around to blow me down
Held on as tightly as you held on to me
Held on as tightly as you held on to me

And I built a home
For you
For me
Until it disappeared
From me
From you
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

This year as a whole pushed me emotionally over my limits. I have never felt like this before.

My heart was broken, I had to leave my home and my mum was diagnosed with cancer. And in between these things a lot happened and I didn't have time to recover properly.

I'm writing this comment to remind my future self, that no matter how hard it is and no matter how bad I feel it will go away.

When the time comes I will come back and read and remind me of this.

And now I will take my time to heal.

Take care people.

My husband married me and carried me during the height of my illness and helped me as I healed. Not only did he take care of me, he took on being a father to my 12 year old daughter at the time with no hesitation. He built this house up. My husband died 5 months ago in a head on collision and our 6 month old baby boy survived. This is a beautiful song that really speaks to me.
