Perry Como - "A House Is Not A Home" lyrics

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 . . .
