Alanis Morissette Your House Lyrics

Last updated: 05/05/2008 11:00:00 AM

I went to your house
Walked up the stairs
Opened your door without ringing the bell
Walked down the hall
Into your room where I could smell you
And I shouldn't be here
Without permission
Shouldn't be here...

Would you forgive me love if I dance in your shower?
Would you forgive me love if I laid in your bed?
Would you forgive me love if I stay all afternoon?

I took off my clothes
Put on your robe
And Went through your drawers
And I found your cologne
Went down do the den
Found your CD’s
And I played your Joni

And I Shouldn't stay long
You might be home soon
Shouldn't stay long...

Would you forgive me love if I danced in your shower?
Would you forgive me love if I laid in your bed?
Would you forgive me love if I stay all afternoon?

I burned your incense
I ran a bath
and I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
It said:
"Hello love.
I love you so, love.
Meet me at midnight."
And no, it wasn't my writing
I'd better go soon
It wasn't my writing

So forgive me love if I cry in your shower
So forgive me love for the salt in your bed
So forgive me love if I cry all afternoon

Gut wrenchingly pure | Reviewer: Cindy | 5/5/2008

"Your House" is gut wrenchingly pure...love lost and the white knuckled attempts to reconnect to something gone. The last verse nearly made me double over, such is the ability to feel her pain & disbelief & panic & grief. How I wish the song were just a bit longer!



BRILLIANT | Reviewer: Justin | 6/11/2006

On her first CD Jagged Little Pill (1996) this bonus track had beautiful words, only there was no music playin with it. I recently heard it again on her new 10 year Anniversary CD - Jagged Little Pill Acoustic, and it is MAGNIFICENT!!! I cant stop listening to it... i wish she released it as a single!!! I LOVE HER SO MUCH ;) SHE IS THE BEST ARTIST EVER!!!
