Vanessa carlton - White houses

Crashed on the floor when I moved in
This little bungalow
With some strange new friends
Stayed up too late, and I'm too thin
We promised each other it's 'til the end

Now we're spinning empty bottles
It's the five of us
With pretty-eyed boys girls die to trust
I can't resist the day
No, I can't resist the day

Jenny screams out and it's no pose
'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
Beer through the nose on an inside joke
And I'm so excited I haven't spoken

And she's so pretty
And she's so sure
Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
Summer's all in bloom
Summer is ending soon

It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone
But I hold on to our secrets in white houses

Maybe I'm a little bit over my head
I come undone at the things he's said
And he's so funny in his bright red shirt
We were all in love and we all got hurt

I sneaked into his car's cracked leather seat
The smell of gasoline in the summer heat
Boy, we're going way too fast
It's all too sweet to last

It's alright and I put myself in his hands
But I hold on to our secrets in white houses

Love or something ignites in my veins
And I pray it never fades in white houses

My first time
Hard to explain
Rush of blood
And a little bit of pain

On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think
He's my first mistake

Maybe you were all faster than me
We gave each other up so easily
These silly little wounds will never mend
I feel so far from where I've been

So I go and I will not be back here again
I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses

I lie
Wrote my injuries all in the dust
In my heart is the five of us in white houses

And you
Maybe you'll remember me
What I gave is yours to keep in white houses
In white houses
In white houses
