(Eddie Holland, Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland)
(Originally performed by the Four Tops)
I see a house, a house of stone
A lonely house, 'cos now you're gone
Seven rooms, that's all it is, seven rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness
You took the dream I had for us, and turned that dream into dust
I watch a phone that never rings, I watch a door that never rings
I need you back into my life and turn this darkness into light
I'm all alone in this house, turn this house into a home
I need your touch to comfort me, your tender tender arms that once held me
Without your love, your love inside
This house is just a place to run and hide
Seven rooms, that's all it is, seven rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness
Don't make me live from day to day, watching a clock that ticks away
Another day, another way, another reason for me to say
I need you here, here with me, I need you, darlin', desperately
I'm all alone, all alone in this house that's not a home
I miss your love I once have known, I miss your kiss that was my very very own
Empty silence surrounds me, lonely walls, they stare
Seven rooms, that's all it is, seven rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness
And all the windows are painted black, I'll wait right here 'til you get back
I keep waitin' and waitin', 'til your face again I see
(I want you back now) I keep waitin' and waitin', I want you back now
(I want you back now) I keep waitin' and waitin', c'mon back now
I keep waitin' and waitin' and waitin', waitin', waitin', waitin'
(I want you back now) C'mon back now
