MODDI > House by the Sea

They say home is the place where your heart is
Then I am home now, though I am far away
For so long I’ve let the forest guard it
And now it’s begging me to stay
And I’m trying my best to be tough
To pretend I am strong and can siphon it off
But I’m not who I wanted to be
In my heart I belong in a house by the sea

They say home is a place where you’re needed
Then I am home now, but I am leaving
To feel my feet being kissed by the seaweed
And I will be silent and kiss it back
This is not who I want you to see
It’s just adding on weight to the darkness in me
And from the little I have understood
I believe that a house by the sea would do good

They say home is a place you can choose to be
And I’ve decided to carry home inside me
So it’s not really as if I am leaving
It’s more like something pulling me
Because behind everything that I do
I just want to forget, want to carry this through
Fill my lungs with the sweet summer air
In my heart, in my mind I am already there

Yeah behind everything that I do
I just want to come home and lay down beside you
And then I’ll be who I wanted to be
In my heart I belong in a house by the sea

Video made by Jørgen Nordby. Music and lyrics by Pål Moddi Knutsen. House by the Sea is the first single from the album “Set the House on Fire”, release March 2013.
