Broke into the old apartment
Broken glass, broke and hungry
This is where we used to live
Why did you clean the floor?
This is where we used to live
Why did you keep the mousetrap?
These things used to be mine

Forty-two stairs from the street
Narrow laneway filled with crooks

Why did they change the locks?
This is where we used to live
How is the neighbor downstairs?
I turned up your TV and stomped on the floor just for fun
We bought an old house on the Danforth
I'm happy there

Tore the phone out of the wall
Blending into dull tableaux
