Love’s The Only House Lyrics By Martina Mcbride

    i was standing in the grocery store line
    the one they marked express
    when this woman came through with about 5 things
    and i said don’t you know that more is less
    she said this world is moving so fast
    i just get more behind with every day
    and every morning when i make my coffee
    i can’t believe my life’s turned out this way
    all i could say was

    love’s the only house
    big enough for all the pain in the world
    love’s the only house
    big enough for all the pain

    he was walking by the other day and i said
    hey baby how you’ve been
    yeah i got me a little girl now and she’s 4 years old
    and she’s got her daddy’s little grin
    and you only wanted what you can’t have
    and baby you can’t have me now
    i gave my heart to another
    yeah i’m a mother and he’s a father and we’re a family and we got each other
    and i found out the hard way that

    you drive three miles from all this prosperity
    down across the river and you see a ghetto there
    and we got children walking around with guns
    and they got knives and drugs and pain to spare
    and here i am in my clean white shirt
    with a little money in my pocket and a nice warm home
    and we got teenagers walking around in a culture of darkness
    living together alone all i can say is

    and i can’t explain it and i can’t understand
    but i’ll come down and get my hands dirty
    and together we’ll make a stand

    somewhere ‘cross the parking lot some bands playing out of tune
    city streets are going burn if we don’t do something soon
    and señorita can’t quit crying
    baby’s due now any day
    don juan left got sick of trying
    no one there to show him the way
    she came down to the grocery store
    and she said i want to buy a little carton of milk
    but i don’t have any money
    i said hey i’ll cover you honey
    because the pain’s got to go somewhere
    yeah the pain’s got to go someplace
    so come on down to my house
    don’t you know that
