I’ve been walking through these halls as quiet as a little mouse
Afraid to open any doors
You keep pushing me around I’m sinking further down
I can’t take it any more

What you hold in your head are the words all lovers dread
But go on go on and say ‘em, get ‘em off your chest

Cause I’m tired of living in a house glass
Tip-toeing around while my heart’s a mess
Hanging new curtains, repainting the walls
Never talking about her late night calls
I’m tired of living in a fairy tale world
With a smile on my face to hide all the hurt
I’m gonna throw some stones, gonna watch things crash
Gonna break down . . . this house of glass

You said I was your dream, the only one you’d ever need
But things have changed with time
She spun a little web and then she pulled you in
She’ll suck you ‘til your dry

What you’re doing with your heart is dangerous and dark
But go on go on and let her leave her bloody mark

Cause I’m tired of living in a house glass
Tip-toeing around while my heart’s a mess
Hanging new curtains, repainting the walls
Never talking about her late night calls
I’m tired of living in a fairy tale world
With a smile on my face to hide all the hurt
I’m gonna throw some stones, gonna watch things crash
Gonna break down . . . this house of glass

Baby walk lightly, don’t sleep too sound
Before the night is over I’m gonna turn your world upside down
My old Prince Charming I know the end
This little story baby it ain’t pretend

Cause I’m tired of living in a house glass
Tip-toeing around while my heart’s a mess
Hanging new curtains, repainting the walls
Never talking about her late night calls
I’m tired of living in a fairy tale world
With a smile on my face to hide all the hurt
I’m gonna throw some stones, gonna watch things crash
Gonna break down . . . this house of glass
