House Where Nobody Lives
Tom Waits

There's a house on my block that's abandoned and cold
The folks moved out of it a long time ago
And they took all their things and they never came back
Looks like it's haunted with the windows all cracked
Ev'ryone calls it the house, the house where nobody lives

Once it held laughter, once it held dreams
Did they throw it away, did they know what it means?
Did someone's heart break or did someone do somebody wrong?

Well, the paint is all cracked, it was peeled off of the wood
The papers were stacked on the porch where I stood
And the weeds had grown up just as high as the door
There were birds in the chimney and an old chest of drawers
Looks like no one will ever come back to the house where nobody live

Once it held laughter, once it held dreams
Did they throw it away, did they know what it means?
Did someone's heart break or did someone do somebody wrong?

So if you find someone, someone to have someone to hold
Don't trade it for silver, oh, don't trade it for gold
Cause I have all of life's treasures and they're fine and they're good
They remind me that houses are just made of wood
What makes a house grand ain't the roof or the doors
If there's love in a house it's a palace for sure
Without love it ain't nothing but a house, a house where nobody lives
Without love it ain't nothing but a house, a house where nobody lives
