Anson Seabra – Gingerbread House Lyrics

I fell for you like snow
On the trees
On the night we walked alone
At seventeen
And my cheeks were colored rose
But it wasn’t from the cold
It was the way you looked at me

But feelings fade
and your eyes don’t say
I love you like the way they did before

And the home we made
Somehow became
Just bits and broken pieces on the floor

‘Cause we built a gingerbread house
Four walls of sugar and flour
Built up to watch it fall down
Gumdrops and tears on the ground
So sad it goes so fast
But candy hearts weren’t made to last
I guess
It’s just gingerbread
A gingerbread house

I guess I didn’t know
What you meant to me
‘Til I was all alone
Putting up the tree
But the lights don’t seem to glow
The way they did before
When you were next to me

‘Cause feelings fade
and I can’t say
I love you like the way I did before

And the home we made
Somehow became
Just bits and broken pieces on the floor

‘Cause we built a gingerbread house
Four walls of sugar and flour
Built up to watch it fall down
Gumdrops and tears on the ground
So sad it goes so fast
But candy hearts weren’t made to last
I guess
It’s just gingerbread

10 months I thought we were fine
Lost in the time of our lives
So high the Fourth of July
But seasons change and so did your mind
So sad it goes so fast
But candy hearts weren’t made to last
I guess
It’s just gingerbread
A gingerbread house

‘Cause we built a gingerbread house
Four walls of sugar and flour
Built up to watch it fall down
Gumdrops and tears on the ground
So sad it goes so fast
But candy hearts weren’t made to last
I guess
It’s just gingerbread
