This empty kitchen's where
I'd wile away the hours
Just next to my old chair
You'd usually have some flowers

The shelves of books
Even the picture hooks
Everything is gone
But my heart is hanging on

If this old neighborhood
Survived us both alright
Don't know that it withstood
All the things that took our light

You on the stair
I can see you there
Everything is gone
But my heart is hanging on

Once there was a little girl
Used to wonder what she would be
Went out into the big wide world
Now she's just a memory

There used to be a little school here
Where I learned to write my name
But time has been a little cruel here
Time has no shame

It's just a place
Where we used to live
It's just a place
Where we used to live

Now in another town
You lead another life
And now upstairs and down
You're someone else's wife

Here in the dust
There's not a trace of us
Everything is gone
But my heart is hanging on

It's just a place
Where we used to live
It's just a place
Where we used to live
