The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Your House'

Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Your House'


I went to your house
Walked up the stairs
I opened your door without ringing the bell
I walked down the hall
Into your room
Where I could smell you
And I shouldn't be here, without permission
I shouldn't be here

Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed


Confession time: I was a Lilith Fair-loving, Fiona Apple-singing, Sarah McLachlan-lyrics on my Trapper Keeper scrawling 90s girl. And as such, I can't even count the number of times I lay in my room, weeping into my pillow as I listened to the "secret" a cappella track, 'Your House," on Alanis Morissette's album Jagged Little Pill. Seriously. So much crying. And the funny thing is I:

a) had nothing to cry about in 1995 and,
b) genuinely had no clue what this song was about.

However, now that I'm an adult, I am aware how awesomely creepy this song about a re-heally committed stalker actually is. She breaks in, uses his shower, rolls around in his bed, listens to his music, cries all over everything, and then leaves without so much as a word. That is some gloriously spooky love.

Just think about that the next time you come home and something seems slightly out of place... ~RH
