Billy Bragg – Back To The Old House lyrics

I would rather not go
Back to the old house

I would rather not go
Back to the old house
Too many memories, bad memories
Too many memories there

When you cycled by
Here begin all my dreams
The saddest thing I've ever seen

And you never knew
How much I really liked you
'Cause I never even told you
I meant to

Are you still there?
Or have you, moved away
Or have you moved away?

I would love to go
Back to the old house
But I never will
I never will, I never will
