This house is not a home to you
But you decide to go ahead and lay down, lay down
She’s overstaying her welcome and is unaware of it. Even though his house is not her’s, she decides to go on and lay down in his bed, in his room.
“This house is not a home to you” shows how he feels about hitting the mainstream. The mainstream is not his home, the underground is, he feels like a stranger to all this.
“But you decide to go ahead and lay down” reveals his personal worries — he’s speaking to himself as in, “Abel, you know the risks, are you sure you want to take this direction?”. “Lay down” suggests vulnerability, revealing his true worries about his future as a mainstream artist.
There’s a double meaning here as the lines reference the countless girls who offer themselves to him. They have no identity or home, not really knowing what they’re doing. It shows how dangerous and dazzling the power of his music can be.
