House for sale

The sign went up one rainy morning

Just a couple of hours after dawn

Mrs Handley peaked out through her curtains

Wondering what was going on

The neighbours said over coffee cups

That nice young couple is breaking up

In the living room the linen and the crystals

Sit all packed and set to go

I tell myself once more I won`t be here this spring

To see my roses grow

And all the things you tried to fix

The roof still leaks, the door still sticks

House for sale

You can read it on the sign

House for sale

It was yours and it was mine

And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs

To the bedroom filled with memories

The one we used to share

I know you`ve always loved that painting

From that funny little shop in Spain

Remember how we found it when we ducked in

From that sudden summer rain

But I think I’ll keep the silver tray

My mother gave us on our wedding day

House for sale

You can read it on the sign

House for sale

It was yours and it was mine

And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs

To the bedroom filled with memories

The one we used to share

House for sale

You can read it on the sign

House for sale oh

It was yours and it was mine

And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs

To the bedroom filled with memories

The one we used to share
