Well, these walls turn gray
Paint each room and every hall
The oven clock repeats itself

Now, this frozen midday
Fixing the home that I grew up in
Sing to a pile of boxes

I am beside myself
Stuck in the home that I grew up in
I can’t stand a lonely room
All my songs are frozen in time

So what would you have me do?

Well, she sings so softly
Window-mounted frigidaire
Keeps my company, but the filter’s dead

I wish that I could describe the place where I lived
And O how I wish you could know
Wooden family, painted in color

I am beside myself
Orange and red is the home that I grew up in
Now all the walls are gray
There’s no trunk, there’s only roots

So what would you have me do?

I sing alone
If midday floats away from this home
Will my songs be unfrozen?

Well, I will turn gray
I will keep my mellow heart
With error in my engine

I am beside myself
Gone is the home that I grew up in
I brought back a few simple songs
And I can’t wait to show them to you

So what would you have me do?
