Mark Knopfler - A Place Where We Used To Live

Mark Knopfler

A PLACE WHERE WE USED TO LIVE

This empty kitchen's where

i'd while away the hours

just next to my old chair

you'd usually have some flowers

the shelves of books

even the picture hooks

everything is gone

but my heart is hanging on

if this old neighbourhood

survived us both alright

don't know that it withstood

all the things that took our light

you on the stair

i can see you there

everything is gone

but my heart is hanging on

once there was a little girl

used to wonder what she would be

went out into the big wide world

now she's just a memory

there used to be a little school here

where i learned to write my name

but time has been a little cruel here

time has no shame

it's just a place where

we used to live

it's just a place where

we used to live

now in another town

you lead another life

and now upstairs and down

you're someone else's wife

here in the dust

there's not a trace of us

everything is gone

but my heart is hanging on

it's just a place where

we used to live

it's just a place where

we used to live
