Another Street

© Midnight Island Music

There's a great big house on the outskirts of town
That people come to see from miles around
Houses like that are far and few
And I lived there for a year or two
A house so beautiful, so complete
That I have a little trouble with the people I meet
and they don't believe me even when I repeat 
That I ended up living on another street

The rooms are filled with the finest things
I've ever seen before or since
And each to make you stop and stare
And wonder at the beauty there
A house so beautiful, so complete
That I have a little trouble with the people I meet
and they don't believe me even when I repeat 
That I ended up living on another street

The pool in the garden is dark and deep
And fish swim lazily in their sleep
The flowers growing round it are rich and rare
And the grass is green and the paths are bare
A house so beautiful, so complete
That I have a little trouble with the people I meet
and they don't believe me even when I repeat 
That I ended up living on another street

There is food and drink of every kind
For body and spirit, heart and soul and mind
A house like that seems always new
But not to me away from you
A house so beautiful, so complete
That I have a little trouble with the people I meet
and they don't believe me even when I repeat 
That I ended up living on another street
