House of Gold Lyrics

She asked me, son, when I grow old
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone
Will you take care of me?

She asked me, son, when I grow old
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to...

    His mum , by selfishly asking so much, is ripping him apart

    Song of confusion n turmoil by simply being asked to give more than one can.

    Whilst mum gets on with daily chores, her boy is stressed beyond capacity

    But, home is where the heart is

    Most people say that this song is about his mother, (which I'm not denying)but I got different themes from it when I listened to it. That being the themes of change and dreams.

    Like Tyler says in the song, ("When I grow old," "When your father turns to stone," "Life turns plans upon their heads.") things will eventually change and instead of fighting it, we should know that not everything is set in stone and that we should be grateful for what we have now.

    As for the theme of dreams, Tyler knows that the big dreams we have for the future are most likely not going to happen and we need to accept that and move on.
