It's My House, Lyrics & Discussion

Recommended Posts

OK here we go! First new song in a while!

 

It's My House

 

Don't even try to tempt me with the keys of the Taj Mahal
Or the Leaning Tower of Pisa 'cause I heard it's about to fall

There ain't no pyraminds or palaces for me
Already got a home, it's the only place I need

 

It might be big, it might be small

Ain't no paintings on the wall
And the bed might not be long enough
The neighbors want us all to leave

And they're callin' the police

They'd kick us out if they were strong enough

 

It's my house

 

'Cause my house

Is your house

My heart is too

'Cause my house

Is your house
There's room for you

 

Ain't no walls you could keep my heart in
Ain't no walls I won't lock you out
It's my house

 

You don't need a flying pigeon 'cause you already know the way

You can bring your best friend with you and I'd love to have you stay

We can make some music, yeah, we can watch the sun go down

This house is yours and mine, you can always come around

 

It might be big, it might be small

Ain't no paintings on the wall
And the bed might not be long enough
The neighbors want us all to leave

And they're callin' the police

They'd kick us out if they were strong enough

 

'Cause my house

Is your house

My heart is too

'Cause my house

Is your house
There's room for you

 

Ain't no walls you could keep my heart in
Ain't no walls I won't lock you out
It's my house

I think the first line is "keys to the Taj Mahal" and I think the chorus is "'Cause my house, is your house. My heart is too."

 

I love this song so much, it just makes me feel happy!

This song is so positive and just make me dance :dance_man:

I think the strength of this song lies in its simplicity and  the fact that everyone has such feelings when thinking about their own home :wub2:

Good job with the lyrics girls! :thumb_yello:

 :thumb_yello: Exactly my thoughts as well.  "My home is my castle" - is the reality, for most of us, I think...:wink2:

Here goes another strange thought.  Mika reminds me so much of Giulietta Masina in La Strada.  Of course she brought alot of Charlie Chaplin to the role, so there is that.  But she is the heart of Fellini's world.  She sees the magic in life.  And she feels for everyone. 

 

And now I know which Tarot card he would be -- the King of Cups.  

 

This song is a welcome, a promise, a song of inclusion.  It is beautifully generous and full of heart.  It's what I imagine you all feel when you walk into a Mika show. (I have never been).   

" 'Cause my house

Is your house

My heart is too

It's my house

It's your house
There's room for you

 

Ain't no walls you could keep my heart in
Ain't no walls I won't lock you out"

 

I really, really, really like this man.

Well I think I had better put money aside now.  I live in Los Angeles and ticket scalping is out of control.  It might cost the same to fly to Europe, no joke.  But the whole getting tickets thing makes me anxious, I want to see him while he's still a jumping bean!

Yes, it's expensive to travel far to see MIKA live - something I haven't done much, but I'm extremely happy and thankful for what I've managed to do! :blush-anim-cl: As you probably know MIKA has given concerts both in the US and Canada,  throughout the years, so let's hope he'll do more of it, so you can experience him in your part of the world! :wink2: MIKA's still young and full of energy, so I don't think you should be afraid of being too late, for seeing  him as "a jumping bean" :naughty:

 

Love, love

Translation of the lyrics into French:

 

C'est ma maison

 
N'essaye même pas de me tenter avec les clés du Taj Mahal
Ou de la tour penchée de Pise car j'ai entendu dire qu'elle allait tomber 

Peu importe les pyramides ou les palaces pour moi
J'ai déjà une maison , pas besoin d'un autre endroit 

 

Elle pourrait être grande ou petite
Pas de tableaux sur ses murs
Et le lit risque de ne pas être assez long

Les voisins veulent qu'on parte tous 
Et ils appellent la police
Ils nous jetteraient dehors s'ils étaient assez forts


C'est ma maison 
 Car ma maison
Est ta maison
Et mon coeur aussi
C'est ma maison
C'est ta maison 
Il y a la place pour toi 

 

Il n'existe pas de murs pour emprisonner mon coeur
Il n'existe pas de murs pour t'enfermer dehors

 
Tu n'a pas besoin d'un pigeon voyageur pour être invité (e) car tu connais déjà le chemin 

Tu peux amener ton/ ta meilleur(e) ami(e) avec toi et j'adorerais que tu restes

On peut faire de la musique , on peut admirer le coucher de soleil 

Cette maison est la tienne et la mienne, tu peux rester là pour toujours 

 
 Elle pourrait être grande ou petite
Pas de tableaux sur ses murs
Et le lit risque de ne pas être assez long
Les voisins veulent qu'on parte tous 
Et ils appellent la police
Ils nous jetteraient dehors s'ils étaient assez forts


C'est ma maison 
 Car ma maison
Est ta maison
Et mon coeur aussi
C'est ma maison
C'est ta maison 
Il y a une place pour toi 

 Il n'existe pas de murs pour emprisonner mon coeur
Il n'existe pas de murs pour t'enfermer dehors
C'est ma maison

OK, now that I've heard the actual single, I think in the second verse he actually says, "you don't need a flying pigeon, 'cause you already know the way." Flying pigeon as in a homing pigeon. I think. I've changed it in the lyrics above. If anyone agrees/disagrees, please let me know! This is a tricky one! Maybe we can ask the co-author Jonathan Quarmby, Eriko!  :wink2:

It's on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and most other music services, I think. :thumb_yello:

Do you have the answer if it's a flying pigeon or flyer?

The more I listen to it, the more it sounds like "flying pigeon" to me. On the Che Tempo Che Fa show it was hard to hear, but it's pretty clear on the single. In my opinion. :)
