I stand in the centre
Four walls are my domain
Living here alone as I do
Life couldn't be the same
For love used to be the central hearth
The fireplace where we would defend
All discrepancies solved and
Where my devotion was spent

Cold stone was the exterior
And your heart turned a similar way
Full warmth had slowly disappeared
I thought you had come to stay
Chatter filled rooms had quietened
Bold wallpaper began to demur
Our life together was a chasm so wide
Heat sifted through icy windows for sure

Shall I change my address and tell the postman
If you send me flowers or rose covered cards
Don't forward them, I can't revisit that place
Cut them up into a million teary shards
For life couldn't be the same again
You took my heart, nurtured in the house that I called home
Another four walls are now my domain
Your love isn't here and it isn't the same
