Mickey Newbury - "Swiss Cottage Place" lyrics

I turned down the covers
On a bed where two lovers
Found reasons to face each new day
In a room filled with memories
In a house built for love
On a street down in Swiss Cottage Place

My mind surrenders as all that remembers
Comes to steal the moment away
Yesterday is gone and where I stand here alone
Its a hollow ringin' place called today

Last night I watched baby as she was boardin'
The Greyhound bus back to Saint Lou
Lord I couldn't let her know
That I knew why she was leavin'
Not after all we've been through

Slippin' my coat from my shoulders I said
Hun it may get cold in Saint Lou
And the look in here eyes turned suddenly sad
When she knew that I knew what she'd do

Now my mind surrenders as all that remembers
Comes to steal the moment away
Yesterdays gone and where I stand here alone
Its a hollow ringin' place called today
