Diana Ross It's My House Lyrics

Last updated: 05/05/2012 11:00:00 AM

It's my house and I live here
(I wanna tell you)
It's my house and I live here

There's a welcome mat at the door
And if you come on in
You're gonna get much more
There's my chair
I put it there
Everything you see
Is with love and care

It's my house and I live here
(I wanna tell you)
It's my house and I live here

On the table, there sits a rose
Through every window
A little light flows
Books of feeling on the shelf above
'Cause it was built for love
I was built for love

It's my house and I live here
(I wanna tell you)
It's my house and I live here

There's a candle to light the stairs
Where my dreams await someone to share
Oh, there's music on the radio
And good vibrations won't let me go
I put my name on the ceilin' above

'Cause it was buillt for love
It was built for love, ooh
You say you wanna move in with me
You say you wanna move in with me
Got to follow the rules to get me
Got to follow the rules to get me
You wanna visit my house
Say you wanna drop by
Wanna visit my house, yeah
To see me sometimes

There's a welcome mat at the door
And if you come on in
You're gonna get much more
I put my name in the ceilin' above
'Cause it was built for love
It was built for love

It's my house and I live here
(I wanna tell you)
It's my house and I live here

Love this :) | Reviewer: maru | 5/5/12

I just love the arrangements of this song, it speaks to me :) At first I didnt like it that much, but then it totally grew on me. Very beautiful :) I'm a non believer, so I dont really look at this song to be religious but I guess it could be taken that way.

Heavenly Metaphor for Touching God | Reviewer: Jimmy Rocker | 1/15/08

I play this song over and over again and still
get chills of joy. Diana initially eases into a delicate, languid, haughty lyrical flow about grooving on the selective arrangement of earthly possessions inside of a physical home. I can't explain how that excursion transforms the listener into an addictive dimension of spiritual Joy. But it happens to me. When the
song first came out it sounded good and catchy but seemed overly simplistic. Nothing special. But years later, I recognize and applaud the incredible sensitivity of the artists to enhance or even create new emotional layers into the performance. I see and feel different things in my soul at different playings. Do you? Ashford, Simpson and Ross have produced a timeless masterpiece here. I shall now go play the song 10 more times.
