lyrics

the basement has been flooding for years
let's bring those heavy boxes up the stairs and dry them out

give the walls a fresh new coat of paint
open all the windows, let the sunlight in again

weed the garden, polish silverware
brush away the cobwebs, we are almost getting there

we will fix this house
with our own four hands
from the inside out
you and i will mend

we clean out the closet of old clothes
tattered, no longer fashionable, oh, how we've grown

find a pair for all those single socks
we're doing laundry, look how much we've got in common now

all the time lost, never talking
our poor house just went on rotting
but its not too late
we're almost getting there

we will fix this house
with our own four hands
from the inside out
you and i will mend

we will fix this house
before summer ends
from the inside out
we will try again

no more sweeping dirt under the rug
swallowing what we really want to say
no more hiding the story behind
those pictures we never liked anyway
no apologies on a post-it note
inconspicuous on the fridge
just tell me how you have been doing
all of these uncomfortable years

someday our work here will be done
but for now, let's keep at it
we're almost getting there
