Perry Como - It's Impossible 1970

A House Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
Is Not A Home

A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sittin' there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there,
To hold you tight
An' no one there
You can kiss goodnight . . . 
 
A room is still a room
Even when there's nothin' there but gloom
But a room is not a house
And a house is not a home 
When the two of us
Are far apart
An' one of us 
Has a broken heart . . . 
 
Now an' then 
I call your name
An' suddenly your face appears 
But it's just a crazy game 
When it ends 
It ends in tears . . .
 
Darling have a heart
Don't let one mistake keep us apart 
I'm not meant to live alone 
Turn this house into a home 
When I climb the stair
An' turn the key 
Oh please be there 
Still in love with me . . .
 
< instrumental bridge >
 
I'm not meant to live alone 
Turn this house into a home 
When I climb the stair
An' turn the key 
Oh please be there 
Still in love with me . . .
