The Note


And hung up on the door

Where you said you’d leave it

The notice that you’d gone

Too many days off shore

You said I hadn’t done shit

I’d been away too long

 

And I did it all for you

I did it all for you

 

The money I was making

It didn’t mean a damn thing

It only made things worse

The ink your hand was shaking

Wrote a happy ending

But this blessing is a curse

 

And I know

This house is not home

It’s just a shell

Where our love used to live

These empty chairs

Where our love used to sit

My heart’s a roof with nothing under it

 

Well I’m borrowing my smiles

From the empty glasses

Spread around our floor

Well I’m happily exiled

I’ll pay back as time passes

For I know not what’s in store

 

And I know

This house is not home

It’s just a shell

Where our love used to live

And these empty chairs

Where our love used to sit

My heart’s a roof with nothing under it

 

Well I’m losing sleep

I haven’t been to bed for weeks

And these eyes won’t close

I haven’t done a thing but think

This restless mind should never drink

I’ve found the brink

The most that I sleep is when I blink

When I blink

 

And I know

This house is not home

It’s just a shell

Where our love used to live

And these empty chairs

Where our love used to sit

My heart’s a roof with nothing under it

 

And I know

This house is not home

It’s just a shell

Where our love used to live

And these empty chairs

Where our love used to sit

My heart’s a roof with nothing under it

My heart’s a roof
