lyrics

There's more than a house behind these bricks
These walls watched us as we got up to our tricks
We were so young back then but we felt so old
This was the first time we didn't have to do what we're told

We were raised by our parents but this is where we grew up
Our new life was an adventure and we experienced it together
Every year that we moved we learned another lesson
We kept learning the whole time even though we thought we knew it all

What is there to learn? Some say its how it feels to earn (your own way)
What is there to learn? It's in the value and the worth (your own way)
What is there to learn?

Now all my friends have moved on to different cities and far away
It seems I pass by a house where they used to live everyday
The bricks, the windows and the walls all remind me of a time in our lives
It holds a place in my heart and the memory revives

What is there to learn? Some say its how it feels to earn (your own way)
What is there to learn? It's in the value and the worth (your own way)
What is there to learn? That every episode of your life will take its turn
It's important to learn that happiness is just a moment

So learn to make these moments last so that when they have passed
You wont be clinging on to retrospect or the past
No matter how close we are as friends, we cant forget the good time ends
The end of one chapter is the start of another
When those passionate fights turned into late late nights
We learned there's more than a house behind these bricks
When best friends live together they experience all kinds of weather
It makes up for being woken up by slammed cabinets
We never meant to piss each other off though we didn't know it at the time
We were just learning how to live our own lives
When those houses are ashes in the wind
We learn there's more than a house behind these bricks
In the end all that remains is the memories kept alive
