If these walls could talk
Oh what they'd say
They'd tell the story of my life

I lost my dad as a little boy
--momma, she had to 2 pairs of shoes to fill
saved up her money, got her spirit right
bought us a house up on a hill
new friends new school, new way of life
everythang we once knew had changed
(but they say)
whateva don't break ya
was sent to you to make ya
stronger in the end
and we were never the same

And after school, on the porchtop
we used to dance
and talk bout how we's gon make it big
I moved into the basement
bought myself equipment then
built the studio
my dreams aint changed since
I was a kid
I can remember my
first love, first kiss, first time I ever ......
(don't you say it)
mistakes heartaches,
Man growin up was so amazin'
and in the mist of it all
we climb and we fall
but I know that I wouldn't change a thing

from my baby teeth into puberty
I was so shy that I could hardly speak
used to cut my hair in the bathroom sink
summers in JA with my family
mind went to places you could never know
nights I was writin, but was all alone
doubt filled my mind but it's no surprise
I dreamed alot with open eyes
but something that
made it all worth the while
were the songs inside
when they came to life
and if you look you'll find
that every house has stories
but this one is mine

We've seen ups and we've seen downs
seen our lives turned all around
but one thing there's no shortage of
is memories and love
