lyrics

leave the key, leave the key
in the lock in the front door
a stranger knocks, says
are you sure
in this day and age
you can take that chance?
well, go round the back and
in we climb

down the road, that western road
there’s a house that once was sold
that’s her home, yes
that’s her home
born and bred, born and bred
while we moved away
but we gather now and
she’s a century

it was - one hundred years
living in the same house
in that town that faces south
facing out to sea
she was living there by herself
outlived her family
and we were not so far away
living hand to mouth

lead me back, lead us back
we’d like to look again
see the window pane, see
see the house again
not the same
course, it’s not the same
and the neighbourhood is
locked and alarmed

a picture frame, it’s not the same
but it borders on the past
and she is sitting there where
she can touch the glass
the way things were
in another key
and here we are
this
family
