lyrics

Fieldstone stacked and hauled it must've took a mountain  
Trees for beams and floorboards back then no one was counting  
Piled, notched and planed until your hands were bleeding 
A New World was cut and hewn for these rooms
 
The kids grew tall the corn grew high out wavy windows 
Babies cried and people died their love forsaken 
Boys they marched to war despite the plans they were making 
Some to die decades too soon from these rooms
 
Chorus: 
Now we play there and the notes well they just dance on the floor boards 
And I’m singing a story I know this room has heard before 
And nothing new gonna happen between these stone walls 
The walls have seen it all… the glory and the fall

So within these rooms they find their strength and memories
Born of wood and stone and tears and fears and sweat 
They forged a path to carry on to seek their destinies
Of life’s sweet mysteries no regrets in these rooms
 
Chorus

Now we live our lives filled with want and mystery
And what we say and do today is tomorrow’s history 
And within these walls we'll find some peace and meaning 
'Cause time creates a better view

From these rooms…
From these rooms…
