Shutters and boards cover the windows
Of the house where we used to live
All I have left is a heart full of sorrow
Since she said she'd never forgive.

The house that we've built was once filled with laughter
But I changed that laughter to tears
And now I live in a world without sunshine
Oh, how I wish you were here.

Shutters and boards cover the windows
Of the house where we used to live
All I have left is a heart full of sorrow
Since she said she'd never forgive.

Last night I dreamed that you came to our house
To take an old book from the shelf
If you'll open the shutters I'll tear down the boards
Cause I drove every nail by myself.

Shutters and boards cover the windows
Of the house where we used to live
All I have left is a heart full of sorrow
Since she said she'd never forgive.

All I have left is a heart full of sorrow
Since she said she'd never forgive...
