House For Sale (Martin/Osborne)

I … took a walk today…  in the pouring rain

why… did I have to stray … back down memory lane ?

Everything’s looking good

in our old neighbourhood

There’s a House For Sale

it’s the final nail in a love-affair gone stale

There’s a vacancy where love used to be

it’s an old familiar tale

There’s a House for Sale.

I … couldn’t help but stare … standing there alone

Tell me why did it all go wrong  …That house used to be Home

Baby take my advice

stick to your asking price

There’s a House For Sale

it’s the final nail in a love affair gone stale

There’s a vacancy where love used to be

You can re-direct my mail

(Cos) there’s a House for Sale

(Instrumental section)

There’s an “Empty” sign

on this heart of mine…. I’m a ship without a sail

as I count the cost of the life I’ve lost

leaving just one small detail

That’s my House for Sale
