There'... door ........ and I'm living there at

[Gm6]                      [Bb]                       [F]                                                                                             

night it... ...the days are.... in-side

[C]  There's a house with n[G]o door an[G7/D]d I'm  [C]living [Dm7/A]there
at [Gm6]nights it gets so cold and the[Bb] days are hard to bear [F]inside.
[C]  There's a house with n[G]o roof, so the [G7/D]rain  [C]creeps [Dm7/A]in,
[Gm6]falling through my head as I [Bb]try to think out [F]time
[C]I don't know you, you [C/B]say you know me, [C/A]that may be so,
                   [C/G]there is so much that I am u[F]nsure of...
[C]You call my name but [C/B]it sounds unreal, I for[C/A]get how I feel,
                  my [C/G]body's rejecting the c[F]ure.

                  [D]    [D]    [Dsus4]        [D]   
There's a house with no bell but then nobody calls;
I sometime find it hard to tell if any are alive at all outside.
There's a house with no sound; yes, it's quiet there...
there's not much point in words if there's no-one to share in time.
I've learned my lines, I know them so well, I'm ready to tell,
whoever will finally come in
Of the line in my mind that's called in the night, it doesn't seem right
when there is that little dark figure running...

There's a house with no door and there is no living there:
one day it became a wall... well I didn't really care at the time.
There's a house with no light, all the windows are sealed,
overtaxed and strained NOW NOTHING IS REVEALED BUT TIME
I don't know you, you say you know me, that may be so,
There's so much that I am unsure of...
You call my name but it sounds unreal, I forget how I feel
My body's rejecting the cure.....
Won't somebody help me ......?

Have fun!
