Album version

I wanna build me a house, on higher ground
I wanna find me a world, where love's the only sound
High above this road, filled with shadow and doubt
I want to shoulder my load, and figure it all out
With Leah

(La la la la la...)

I walk this road, with a hammer and a fiery lantern
With this hand I've built, and with this I've burned
I wanna live in the same house, beneath the same roof
Sleep in the same bed, search for the same proof
As Leah

(La la la la la...)

(La la la la la...)

I got somethin' in my heart, I been waitin' to give
I got a life I wanna start, yeah one I been waitin' to live
No more waitin', tonight I feel the light I say the prayer
I open the door, and I climb the stairs

(La la la la la...)
