We returned to that five room flat
Now it was empty and this the last time
There were blinking pictures
Of how we'd sit and chat
Some of them are scattered
Others shattered in my mind

It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept time

In the winter, a chatterin' cold
While the building shook like ragweed in the wind
Stories from the heat pipes
We were told
Now they only leave me
With a half enchanted grin

It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept time

Bicycles squeezed down alley ways into view
And towels warmed on oven doors
To not freeze
Was the only thing to do

And I wonder if we kept to the fair warning
'Cause I can see it in the flowers
Dyin' on the window sil
I know we must be out by tomorrow mornin'
But am I goin' against my will?

It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept time

Bicycles squeezed down alley ways into view
And towels warmed on oven doors
To not freeze
Was the only thing to do

And I wonder if we kept to the fair warning
'Cause I can see it in the flowers
Dyin' on the window sil
I know we must be out by tomorrow mornin'
But am I goin' against my will

It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept time

It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept time
