"Don't make no mess now," I said once,
"Let's keep love tidy
Oh yeah, Lord
Don't like no changes in my life
I know what I need, uh huh, right"
Got it all figured out
And I don't need no help in no way
But you want an open invitation to my house

You know how time flies and years pass
Complainin', strainin' I won't last
I've tried to stay sane just maintainin'
Keep up the appearance and play the game
But the whole earth is shakin',
Hell and high water come down
Now you've got an open invitation
(For)

Tearin' the walls down in my house
We're swingin' the doors wide
(Takin' all my windows out)
Ah ha, lettin' the light in
In my house
We're startin' all over
(Oh, all over
In my house)

It's just so unlike me to trust you
To make a difference, but I want to
I don't like this hiding, but I can't stop
Well, I might be alright, but I might not
So I jump on the phone and call,
"Everybody come help"
'Cause you've got an open invitation
(For)

Tearin' the walls down in my house
We're swingin' the doors wide
(Takin' all my windows out)
Ah ha, lettin' the light in
In my house
We're startin' all over
(Oh, all over)

('Cause the whole earth is shakin'!)
Hell and high water comin' down!
You've got an open invitation, oh yeah!

(We're tearin' the walls down in my house)
Ha Ha!
(Swingin' the doors wide)
Tearin' it up!
(We're lettin' the light in in my house
Be in my house)
Yeah!
(We're tearin' the walls down in my house
Swingin' the doors wide)-acapo
