Burt Bacharach – A House Is Not A Home lyrics

A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight,
And no one there you can kiss good night.

A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom;
But a room is not a house,
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart.

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends it ends in tears.

Darling, have a heart,
Don't let one mistake keep us apart.
I'm not meant to live alone. turn this house into a home.
When I climb the stair and turn the key,
Oh, please be there still in love with me.

    The song has a simple and eternal message. Sometimes you don't know what you have until it's gone. So often people are "right-fighters. " they argue over minutia and avoid the real issues that are like the elephant in the middle of the living room. These arguments seem so important to the one who has won the argument; but being right can result in a very lonely victory, when the one you love isn't there to give you a hug or a kiss goodnight. A house is only bricks and morter when the one you love has gone away in anger or has died. Loving and being loved makes a house a home; makes everything right and good.
