lyrics

I have a house
Looks out to sea
And this is where he came
The stranger with the face of a man I loved
To the house by the sea
Long time, long time gone
A sort of home

It’s this house
That what’s left of his mind
Seems to have remembered
So what’s left of his mind
Claims the house as his
Though it’s been mine and mine alone since he left me here

He left me here
Half a life ago
But this is where he came
The stranger with the face of a man I loved

In this house
Where the best of our times
I try to remember
And the rest of the time
I try to forget
The times he lied and lied
Before he just left me here

The stranger with the face of a man I loved
In the house by the sea
Long time, long time gone
A sort of home
