Today I passed by that old house
Where we used to stay
It does'nt look the same, no
Since we moved away
There were no kids playing outside
Waiting for the icecream truck to come by
And you're not there, no,
Waiting for me

It's not the same house, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be
( not like it used to be )
It's not the same house, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be
( not like it used to be )

I took a look inside
And it took me quite by surprise
When I found out they tore down our favourite room
Ohh, but the scent of your perfume
Was still in the air
Reminding me of us still being there
But baby you're not there
Waiting for me, no

It's not the same house, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be
( not like it used to be )
It's not the same house, no, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be, no
( not like it used to be )

( Interlude )

Same house
Not like it used to be
Same house
Not like it used to be

The kids room still looks the same
But there's not a toy insight
I even walked over to where their beds used to be
And I pretended to kiss them goodnight
Oooohhh
But tears came to my eyes
When I finally realise
That you were'nt there no, no
Waiting for me

It's not the same house, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be
( not like it used to be )
No It's not the same house, no, no
( same house )
It's not like it used to be, no
( not like it used to be )

The grasses grown tall around the fence
It's not the same house, no
It's not like it used to be
It's not the same house, no
It's not like it used to b
