• White Houses • | by Vanessa Carlton
Crashed on the floor when I moved in
This little bungalow with some strange new friends
Stay up 'til late, and I'm too thin
We promise 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
The summer is all in bloom
The summer is ending soon

It's alright
And it's nice not to be so alone
But I hold onto your secrets
In white houses

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

So I lie, put 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 it is yours to keep
In white houses
In white houses
In white houses
