7 rooms of gloom lyrics – pat benatar

(originally by four tops)

i see a house, a house of stone
a lonely house, ’cause now you’re gone
7 rooms, that’s all it is
7 rooms of gloom
i live with emptiness, without your tenderness
you can take the dream i had for us, and turn that dream into dust
i watch a phone that never rings
i watch your door that never brings
brings you back into my life, and turn this darkness into light
i’m all alone in this house, turn this house into a home

i need your touch to comfort me
your tender, tender arms that once held me
without your love, your love inside
this house is just a place to run and hide
7 rooms, that’s all it is
7 rooms of gloom
i live with emptiness, without your tenderness

don’t make me live from day to day
watching a clock that ticks away
another day, another way, another reason for me to say
i need you here, here with me
i need you darling, desperately

i’m all alone, all alone in this house that’s not a home

i miss your love, i once had known
i miss your kiss that was my very, very own
in the silence that surrounds me, lonely walls – they stand
7 rooms, that’s all it is
7 rooms of gloom
i live with emptiness, without your tenderness

and all the windows are painted black
i’ll wait right here until you get back
i’ll keep waiting, and waiting, until your face again i see
darling, yeah hea, huh

i want you back now
i keep waiting, and waiting
i want you back now
i keep waiting, and waiting, come on back now….
i keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
i want you back now, whoa – now
come on back now…
