"Swiss Cottage Place" lyrics

Swiss Cottage Place

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

And my mind just surrenders
To all I remember's
Come to steal every moment away
Yesterday's gone
And where I stand here alone
It's a hollow ringing place called today

Last night I watched baby
As she was boarding
A greyhound bus back to St Louis
I couldn't let her know
I knew why she was leaving
Not after all we've been through

Slipping my coat from
My shoulders I said
Hon it may get cold in St Louis
And the look in her eyes
Grew suddenly sad
She knew that I knew what she knew

So now my mind surrenders
To all I remember's
Come to steal every moment away
From this room full of memories
From this house built for love
On the street down on Swiss Cottage Place
