Since you left I can't stay sober and I've let the grass grow over
Those pretty flowers that you planted when we moved in
And the paint has started peeling, down the hall, along the ceiling
Above the busted frame your picture's hangin' in

The carpet's wearin' through, where I dragged around these blues
And the curtain's torn in two, from me lookin' out for you
Once we held it all together, but I can't do it on my own
This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home

Our TV won't get no picture, there's no light-bulb in the fixture
In our bedroom where you used to love on me
All the memories that we once shared, they're all locked forever in there
'Cause I locked the door and I can't find the key

More, the carpet's wearin' through, where I dragged around these blues
And the curtain's torn in two, from me lookin' out for you
Once we held it all together, but I can't do this on my own
This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home
This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home
