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

When i first laid my eyes on you that day,
i saw a glimpse of my future, of a future where I'd come
running to you at the end of an exhausting day to take
refuge in your warm cozy arms and rest my head on you
like there is no care in the world, a future where you'd be
the last thing my eyes see at the end of each and
everyday and the beginning of all my mornings for the
rest of my life.
When i first saw you i had this strange feeling within my
soul, something that I never had before and it took me a
while to figure what it was, a feeling of safety..of
warmth..of happiness and genuine joy, I wondered what
all that meant... how is it possible that one look would
give all of this..one moment that felt like an eternity of
feelings ...
All it needed was one look...one heartbeat, that was all I
need to realize that i finally found my place..Home..
where i want to spend the rest of my life in.

everyone trust me. it gets better. I use to cry to this song until I met my soulmate. I listen to it now and it excites me and makes me emotional. Listening to it know, I interpret this. This song is about building a home with someone and for someone, other than just yourself. You grow with this person, you use this person as a foundation for life as you both embark on a new journey. And when your time comes, in the same field you planted your flowers, you die together. Leaving behind a legacy that you built together. You remember all that you've done together and look back and enjoy every moment all over again. Give yourself time to learn to love yourself, and then the person who will love you properly will come along. Im praying for you! Leave a like or comment on this comment and ill pray for you by name <3

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.
