Written by Graham Nash
(c) 1989 Nashnotes (ASCAP)


Living in a house of broken dreams,
Where shadows throw shadows on the wall,
And memories are mountains to climb
Knowing everyone can fall.

And here where the cobwebs count the hours.
Since we let the laughter clear the air,
Painfully trying to touch
Knowing that we used to care.

Separate houses, separate hearts,
It's hard to face the feelings tearing us apart.
And in this house of broken dreams love lies.

Can we keep our castles in the air
While we're keeping both feet on the ground?
'Cos if your heart can touch another heart
Love can turn it all around.

Get rid of those empty glances and empty sighs
Or tears of longing will fill your eyes.
In this house of broken dreams love hides.


Recorded at The Record Plant, Studio I (January 25th '90)
