Houseful Of Nothing Lyrics

Houseful Of Nothing by Human Ground  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Houseful Of Nothing Talking to your lover
On a non existent phone
Houseful of nothing
The joyous conversation
Of a creature quite alone
Houseful of nothing
The whir of passing traffic
The sighing of the breeze
Houseful of nothing
The awareness of a culture
That is fading by degrees
Houseful of nothing

A hint of a shadow
Or a picture by the door
Houseful of nothing
The creak of a staircase
Or the flexing of the floor
Houseful of nothing
The light spreading even
Neither glaring nor too dark
Houseful of nothing
All finished had blended
Leaving surface with no mark
Houseful of nothing

One time in a lifetime
Understand just what you own
No-one
Owns the sunshine
And possession is a stone
One time in a lifetime
Try to glimpse just who you are
All that learning
All those ages
Have you really come so far?

The traces of a perfume
Half-remembered from the past
Houseful of nothing
The ringing of a catchphrase
From a cherished telecast
Houseful of nothing
Nothing in the corner
Nothing on the wall
Houseful of nothing
It makes you laugh to think
That there were ever things at all
Houseful of nothing

One time in a lifetime
Will you use the things you know
Will you passing
Make a difference
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
Will you foster, will you sow
One time in a lifetime
Make a list of all you own
And when you are gone
What will it do for you, baby?
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

You took my family
Give it back give it back
You took the heart of me
Give it back give it back
You took my dignity
Give it back
Remember society
Bring it back bring it back
Bring it back
Sense of community
Bring it back bring it back
Bring it back
Lost opportunity
Bring it back bring it back
Bring it back
Mercy and charity
Bring it back
Bring it bring it bring it bring it back

One time in a lifetime
Understand just what you own
No-one owns the sunshine
And possession is a stone

One time
Remember society
In a lifetime
Bring it back
Try to glimpse just who you are
All that learning
Sense of community
All those ages
Bring it back
Have you really come so far?

Lost opportunity
Bring it back
Mercy and charity
Bring it back

One time in a lifetime
Try to glimpse just who you are
All that learning
All those ages
Have you really come so far?

Bring it bring it bring it bring it back
Bring it back

One time in a lifetime

Mercy and charity
Bring it back
