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 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
