lyrics

Shaky House (Crommie)

We live in a shaky house
Situated on a busy street
When the big trucks roll on by
The drums begin to beat
Begin to beat

Roll a marble across the floor
Peeling pink from wall to wall
Sunlight streaks through ceiling tiles
Until rain begins to fall
Begins to fall

How can we love each other
When the sky keeps tumbling down?
Why do my knees keep forever shaking
And your uncertain heartbeat pound?

Can’t sleep in a shaky house
Too many noises in the night
Wake up in an empty bed
To turn on the lonely light
Lonely light

I hear the rattling door
Tattle on nocturnal ways
Seems that our struggling love
Has seen its better days
Better days

How can we love each other…
