Lyrics:We returned to that five room flat
Now it was empty and this the last time
Ther were
blinking pictures
Of how we'd sit and chat
Some of them are scattered
Others shattered
in my mind

Chorus:
It was always three flights up
Cathedral bells kept
time

In the winter, a-chatterin' cold
While the building shook like rageweed in the
wind
Stories from the heat pipes
We were told
But now they only leave me
With a
half-enchanted grin

Chorus

Bridge:
Bicycles squeezed down alley ways into
view
And towels warmed on oven doors
To not freeze
Was the only thing to do

I
wonder if we kept to the fair warning
'Cause I can see it in the flowers
Dyin' on the window
sil
I know we must be out by tommorow mornin'
But am I goin' 'gainst my
will

Chorus
Bridge
Repeat last verse
Chorus
