Staples, Mavis - A House Is Not A Home Lyrics




A chair is still a chair even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight
And no one you can kiss good night

A room is still a room even when there's nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart and one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name and suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game when it ends it ends in tears

Darling, have a heart, don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn my key
Oh, please be there still in love with me

Oh, oh, oh, I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Darling, please be there still in love with me

    No. This is not the original. This came out in about 1969. The original was by Dionne Warwick in about 1966.
