<lyrics>Broke into the old apartment This is where we used to live Broken glass, broke and hungry Broken hearts and broken bones

This is where we used to live Why did you paint the walls? Why did you clean the floor? Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door?

This is where we used to live Why did you keep the mousetrap? Why did you keep the dish-rack? These things used to be mine I guess they still are, I want them back

Broke into the old apartment Forty-two stairs from the street Crooked landing, crooked landlord Narrow lane-way filled with crooks

This is where we used to live Why did they pave the lawn? Why did they change to lock? Why did I have to break it, I only came here to talk

This is where we used to live How is the neighbour downstairs? How is her temper this year? I turned up your TV and stomped on the floor just for fun

I know we don't live here any more We bought an old house on the Danforth She loves me a her body keeps me warm I'm happy there

But this is where we used to live Broke into the old apartment Tore the phone out of the wall Only memories, fading memories Blending into dull tableau I want them back<lyrics>
