lyrics

I know I’m foolish to sit here and wait
Never more to hear the hinges of the gate
I think a madness came to me
When you passed along to leave me here

I could go anywhere from coast to coast
Still the thought of you snags me to my post
Beside the dreams that cannot be
There’s no one in this house but me

I miss the signs of you in each and every room
I miss your overcoat and the hook of your perfume
I think a sadness came to me
When you passed along to leave me here

The bathroom shelves are bare, the cupboards gone to waste
In the bathroom mirror, I swear I saw your face
But how crazy can I be?
There’s no one in this house but me

Once you were real
Once you were real
It’s hard to now conceive that you were real
Once you were flesh
Once you were flesh
And I was not a mess when you were flesh

I keep your photo at the bottom of our stairs
When I come in, I’m so pleased to see you there
And then the sadness grows in me
Cause you passed along to leave me here

And every drink I have I always make for two
And every meal that I prepare I make for you
But to an infinite degree
There’s no one in this house but me

And on the TV, I watch our favourite show
It’s not so funny now I watch it on my own
There’s just this bitterness and grief
Since you passed along to leave me here

And touching moments in a drama are a mess
I lean across to cry into your dress
But how thick can I be
There’s no one in this house but me

Once you were real
Once you were real
It’s hard to now conceive that you were real
Once you were flesh
Once you were flesh
And I was not a mess when you were flesh

Once in bed at night, I never can relax
I lie and think of you home again at last
And then the madness grows in me
Cause you passed along to leave me here

And when I fall asleep, you always fill my dreams
Then these four walls are quite a happy place to be
But how desperate can I be?
There’s no one in this house but me
