She walked up to the doorway
Of a mansion on the hill
Was a sign for sale by owner
Taped up on the windowsill
The man said let me tell you
A little about this place
And as he spoke she noticed
A tear roll down his face

It's a big ol' empty house
Where there used to be a home
There's a big ol' broken heart
That's been living there alone
If you fill it up with love
Oh, that's what it's all about
If you don't you'll wind up livin'
In a big ol' empty house

She pulled out a blank check
Took a pen and signed her name
She said both our situations
Seems like they're one and the same
She said all this money
Is just what I settled for
But what I really wanted
I guess we could not afford

There's a big ol' empty house
Where there used to be a home
There's a big ol' broken heart
That's been living in there alone
If you fill it up with love
Oh, that's what it's all about
If you don't you'll wind up livin'
In a big ol' empty house

If you don't you'll wind up livin'
In a big ol' empty house...
