Halfway Home – Upstairs Room lyrics

There's a young woman in an upstairs room/in a little town
Where rain falls and flowers bloom
And theres an old boy on a living room chair
He's got a dream and a plan that's gunna
Take him there
He smiles at the past then he grits his teeth
Clinches his fist tightly and swears "no defeat"
Then he turns on the music to the tuneof the lady he remembers in the upstairs room
The upstairs room- lit up in candlelight
When the storm blew
We both lost our sight
And I lost my love in an upstairs room
There's an empty space where her love used to be
He says "it's water under the bridge that takes its toll on me
It's been a long time
It ended much too soon
Still he remembers the promise
In an upstairs room

One things for certain it can never be the same
Her voice and image still pounding in his brain
And his heart afraid to open up another wound
Forgives the lies spoken in passion
In an upstairs room
