    Lyrics

    This empty kitchen's where
    I'd while 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 neighbourhood
    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
