Take Care Of This House

Barbra Streisand

Band/Artist: Barbra Streisand

Album: Walls

Here in the shell of a house
This house that is struggling to be
A beacon of light
Shinning all through the night
So bright that the whole world could see

But now there's a chill in the room
Windows are starting to leak
Floorboards are starting to creak
And hope, hope may arrive
The house will survive
If only these walls could speak

Take care of this house, keep it from harm
If bandits break in, sound the alarm
Care for this house, shine it by hand
And keep it so clean, the glow can be seen
All over the land

Be careful at night, check all the doors
If someone makes of with a dream, the dream will be yours
Take care of this house, be always on call
For this house is the hope of us all

Beware of full smiles that lead you astray
When someone is telling you lies, let truth lead the way
Take care of this house, be always on call
Care for this house, it's the hope of us all
