Crowded House Locked Out Lyrics

Last updated:

I've been locked out
I've been locked in
but I always seem to come back again
when you're in that room
what do you do?
I know that I will have you in the end
And the clouds
they're crying on you
and the birds are offering up their tunes
in a shack as remote as a mansion
you escape into a place where nothing moves

And I've been locked out
and I know we're through
but I can't begin to face up to the truth
I wait so long
for the walls to crack
but I know that I will one day have you back

And the hills
are as soft as a pillow
and they cast a shadow on my bed
and the view
when I look through my window
is an altarpiece I'm praying to
for the living and the dead

Twin valleys shine in the morning sun
I send a message out to my only one

Yet I've been locked out
and I know we're through
but I can't begin to face up to the truth
I wait so long
for the walls to crack
but I know that I will one day have you back
(yes, I will)

And I work
like bees in the honey
every night I circle like the moon
it's an act
of simple devotion
but it can take forever when you've got something to prove
