Ronald Isley – A House Is Not A Home lyrics

A chair is still a chair even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house, and a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight, and no one there you can kiss good night

A room is still a room even when there's nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house, and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart and one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name and suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game when it ends it ends in tears

Darling have a heart, don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone turn this house into a home
When I climb the stair and turn the key
Oh please be there still in love with me
