LYRICS

I wish I was a camera 
I wish I was a postcard 
I welcome you to my house 
You didn’t have to go far 

A house and a garden 
There are plants and trees 
Make a closer inspection 
If you get —get down on your knees 
Now ev’rybody’s comin to my house 
And I’m never gonna be alone 
And ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
And they’re never gonna go back home 

I’m pointing and describing 
And I can be your guide 
The skin is just a roadmap 
The view is very nice 

Imagine looking at a picture 
Imagine driving in a car 
Imagine rolling down the window 
Imagine opening the door 

Ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
Ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
I’m never gonna be alone 
And they’re never gonna go back home 

We’re only tourists in this life 
Only tourists but the view is nice 
And we’re never gonna go back home 
No we’re never gonna go back home (all right)
We’re only tourists in this life 
Only tourists but the view is nice 
Now ev’rybody’s comin to my house 
And I’m never gonna be alone 
And ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
And they’re never gonna go back home 
Ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
Ev’rybody’s comin’ to my house 
I’m never gonna be alone
And I’m never gonna go back home
