The house that I live in - has sung its last song

It might as well give in - for it won’t be long

Before the old fortress - is long dead and gone

Oh everything’s falling apart

The ceiling is peeling - it’s lined with old age

A book lies revealing - the very last page

It’s time this old trouper - was leaving the stage

Fop everything’s falling apart


Chorus:

Everything’s falling apart

Everything’s falling apart

The house gets much weaker each day

And soon it will just fade away


The windows stare blankly - as if in a trance

It’s time to say frankly - the house has no chance

It’s lived many lifetimes of love and romance

Now everything’s falling apart

 The house just got older - as all houses will

 The walls that now moulder - are feeling the chill

A weary old soldier - is marching downhill

And everything’s falling apart


Chorus:

            MUSIC BREAK AS VERSE


The pastures of plenty that time can destroy

Will leave a house empty that once rang with joy

The seeds of destruction will breach walls of Troy

When everything’s falling apart


Chorus:





The House That is Falling Apart
