I Invite You Into My Life — “Step Inside This House”   1 comment

I watched the returns for a while tonight, but I turned to listen to music, which led me to this January 2012 posting on a Guy Clark song, “Step Inside This House”. (Don’t ask me what led to what!) In the post, I mentioned that Guy would be turning 70 that year not knowing that he would pass away four years on down the road. I love Lyle Lovett’s performance of the song, but still don’t understand why Guy never performed the song live. — kenne

Guy Clark is a Texas-born singer-songwriter who turned 70 at the end of last year. Another Texas singer-songwriter, Lyle Lovett recorded Clark’s first song, which was never recorded by Clark — “Step Inside This House.” I love this song, its lyrics and what they mean to me. Take a few minutes to listen to this song in the video below and enjoy the feelings you experience. Maybe the poetic  words will mean something to you.

“Step Inside This House”
(Guy Clark)
That picture hangin’ on the wall
Was painted by a friend
He gave it to me all down and out
When he owed me ten
Now it doesn’t look like much I guess
But it’s all that’s left of him
And it sure is nice from right over here
When the light’s a little dim

Step inside my house Babe
I’ll sing for…
