He died when the house was empty.  When the maid had gone.
He put a pen to paper for one final song.
He wrote- Oh babe,   it's the only way.
I know it's wrong but I can't stand
     To go on living,    to go on living,    living life this way

And I don't know what the time is.   Or what the next line is.
    Or how you're gonna to take the news.
But if I had my life again  -  ouu-ouu-ouu - 
I wouldn't change a thing.   
    I'd let nobody.     I'd let nobody    stand inside  my  shoes.

Ohh,         something's gotten hold of me.
This home is not the home it used to be.
I've gathered dust like the dying flowers - oo-oo
  And I've drunk myself sober     Oh - oh - oh - oh.
    after hours   and hours.

(INSTRUMENTAL VERSE, BACKING VOCALS)

Ohh,         something's gotten hold of me.
This home is not the home it used to be.
I've gathered dust like the dying flowers - oo-oo
  And I've drunk myself sober    
     Oooooh After hours  and hours.  Ooh!
