With the birth of their daughter the family begins
They tried for another then came the twins
From toothaches to heartbreaks
And fights for the phone
A house feels so empty
When the last child leaves home

When the last child leaves home
There's the rest of forever
To cherish the memories
That they made together
They're part of each other
So they're not alone
But a house feels so empty
When the last child leaves home

Now there's more peace and quiet than they've ever had
But it's so damn quiet it's driving them mad
So they're trading the old place
For a beach they can comb
Cause a house feels so empty
When the last child leaves home
