Playing House

PLAYING HOUSE Lyrics © Gayna Rose Madder

 

Seal me with your kisses; steal me with your touch

Cut me off from fears and choices teasing me too much

 

You don’t want me, just to flaunt me

You want to mould me and control me

 

Seal me with your kisses; still me with your touch

Cut me off from fears and choices taunting me too much

Steal me with your fingers; silence me, your tongue

Keep me, cover me, forever, locked, imprisoned, deadened, stung.

 

You don’t know me but want to show me

You don’t need me; you want to lead me

To a space where I’ll be suffered not to shake and not to shout

But just softly scratch the surface of what this is all about…

 

Playing house.

 

(Spoken) Fudging all the issues, hedging all your bets

I left the ground beneath your feet, you kept your options…wet

(Sung) You just want to know you have me

You don’t want me for myself

I’m just another item to display with the others on your shelf

 

Playing house.

 

Seal me with your kisses; still me with your touch

Cut me off from fears and choices taunting me too much

Steal me with your fingers; silence me, your tongue

Keep me, cover me, forever, licked, imprisoned, deadened, young

Keep me, cover me, forever, locked, imprisoned, suckered, stung.
