I would like to present Norah Jones' song "Don't know why" to my students, but I'm not sure about the meaning of "house of fun". I couldn't find it in any dictionary. Is it possible to say that a dance club, a bar, or a movie theater are examples of "houses of fun"? Could you explain what
"I left you by the house of fun" could mean?

Thanks a lot.

A little context would be very useful here. What are the preceding and the following lines in the song in which that phrase appears?

A search in google found the following site containing the lyrics: http://www.lyricstime.com/lyrics/28522.html

It is from the first verse of the song:

I waited 'til I saw the sun
I don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

I still don't really know what it refers to. :(

I think you're supposed to use your imagination.
