Rental Property

Had a lot of coats hanging in my hallway
Had a lot of shoes sitting at my door
Had a lot of feet that slipped back in them
And went in search of something more

Had a lot of lips sippin' at my teacups
Borrowing my bed for a month or two
I was their home till the rent ran dry
Or they felt like something new

I don't wanna be rental property no more
Heart after heart taking out a lease on me
I'm taking down the sign
Boarding up my door
Cause I don't wanna be rental property no more

They always bring their best intentions
And all their baggage from the past
For a time I am their haven
Thinking this time it will last
They flick a switch and just like fire
Fill me with the love I lack
They re-arrange what is inside me
Then leave without putting it back

I don't wanna be rental property no more
Strangers at my parties, neighbours always banging at my door
Tenants grow to know me then they leave me feeling emptier than before
No I don't want to be rental property

They're always in such a hurry to go
Is there something about me I should know?
I tell myself they just need a better view
But there is no better view when somebody loves you

I don't wanna be rental property no more
Heart after heart taking out alease on me
I'm taking down the sign
Boarding up my door
Cause I don't wanna be rental property no more
No I don't wanna be rental property no more
