SUBURBAN HOUSE
(Brel.Philips)


Sung by LEO SAYER.

Play SONG (MP3 wil open new window)

There was a time when angels cared
She was my world – when love was fair
We did the marriage vows
and the suburban house
Our babies grown and she'l be leaving soon

Don’t know just when I woke to find
A curtain drawn - a strangers mind
Its taken thios long to know
Love was in the letting go
I’ve tried to pretend but now I realize

I'm reaching out for someone to hold my heart
Searching every face I see, since we’re apart
Somewhere in this life
there’s someone there for me
Reaching out to hold my heart


I looked away –the years slipped by
Caught in a web – of loves last lie
Working to pay the bills - losing that loving thrill

I go through the motions now the passions died

Reaching out for someone to hold my heart
Searching every face I see, since we’re apart
Love never dies - she lies through her eyes

Losing her was just the start

I would go on. As if theres nothing wrong
I believe one more day in a world without love

is more than I can stand
its more than I can stand

(Hugh Burns Guitar solo)

After the silence came
I was the one to blame
I could pretend but now I realise

I'm reaching out for someone to hold my heart
Searching every face I see, since we’re apart
Somewhere in this life
there’s someone there for me
Reaching out to hold my heart

I need someone to hold my heart
