Crosby Stills Nash Young Our House

Our House by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Soft Rock

The song, written by Graham Nash describes some blissful domestic moments from time he spent with singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. They had a house together, that they shared with her two cats, in Laurel in Los Angeles, California. They had been to breakfast together at Art’s Deli. On the way home, they went into an antique store and bought a vase. It was drizzly and gray, and when they arrived home, Nash said, “Do you know what? I’ll light the fire, and you put some flowers in that vase that you just bought.”  David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash, and Neil Young added their magical harmonies, and so the song was born. “Our House” was released on their 1970 album Déja va. The song went to #30 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

Here are the lyrics to “Our House” by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young:

“I’ll light the fire, you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me.

Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good.
Such a cozy room,
The windows are illuminated by the evening sunshine through them,
Fiery gems for you, only for you.

Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy ’cause of you and our—

La, la, la

Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy ’cause of you and our—

I’ll light the fire, while you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.”

For another song by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young: “Teach Your Children Well.”
