This one came from another suggestion from Rachel. She mentioned writing a song from the perspective of an inanimate object talking to the family that surround it. She mentioned Sun Porch Furniture so that became the title of the song, but I wrote it from the perspective of a house watching a family grow and eventually move out.


I'll be here when you are gone
Standing still and standing strong
I'll be here when you've moved on
To somewhere else that you belong

I've been here to see your best
When at your worst I've hid your mess
I'll be here when you leave
And take all the life inside of me

I'll be here X4

I'll be here when we part
When you begin a brand new start
I'll be here in vacancy
Holding only memories

I'll be here when you wave goodbye
And leave sun porch furniture behind
I'll be here when you are gone
Standing still and standing strong

I'll be here X3
Always here
