The Awkward Stage - We Dreamt Of Houses lyrics

When we were young, we dreamt of houses
Took Madonna whores as spouses
Storied halls, our portraits hung
When we were young

When we were young youth promised houses
Walk in closets full of blouses
On our shoulders furs were slung
When we were young

When we were young, we wasted chances
Could afford ignored advances
Stole our honey and got stung
When we were young

But ‘lo the danger left our looks
We’re butterflies just pressed in books
But ‘lo I’ve lost my ideology
My every gesture now an apology

And as an axe will hit the tree and the bark upon it splinter
So ill prepared were we for the coming of this winter
My dream of houses it has died,
It costs so much to live inside
And now my dreams are in extremes
They’re in between the lottery and suicide.

When we were young, our hearts were full
Our hearts were wild and durable
Our dream of houses so far flung
When we were young, when we were young
When we were young, when we were young
