G       D           Cadd9
Broke into the old apartment
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G       D           Cadd9
Broken glass, broke and hungry
Cadd9
Broken hearts and broken homes
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live

Em7   D2                Cadd9
  Why did you paint the walls?
Em7   D2                Cadd9
  Why did you clean the floor?
Em7   D2              Cadd9 
  Why did you plaster over
    D      G
the hole I punched in the door?
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live

G   D                Cadd9
Why did you keep the mousetrap?
    D                Cadd9
Why did you keep the dish rack?
             D
These things used to be mine
  Cadd9                            D
I guess they still are, I want 'em back

G       D           Cadd9
Broke into the old apartment
G     D                   Cadd9
Forty-two stairs from the street
G       D                Cadd9
Crooked landing, crooked landlord
       D                   G
Narrow laneway filled with crooks
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live

Em7   D2                Cadd9
  Why did they pave the lawn?
Em7   D2                  Cadd9
  Why did they change the locks?
Em7   D2            Cadd9 
  Why did I have to break it?
  D                 G
I only came here to talk
G       D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live

G   D               Cadd9
How is the neighbor downstairs?
    D             Cadd9
How is her temper this year?
         D
I turned up your TV
    Cadd9                         D
And stomped on the floor just for fun

Em7  D            G            Cadd9
  I know we don't live here anymore
Am7  D             G               Cadd9
  We bought an old house on the Danforth
Em7   D                G             Cadd9 
  She loves me and her body keeps me warm
Am7       D     G
  And I'm happy here
    D                        Cadd9
But this is where we used to live

G       D           Cadd9
Broke into the old apartment
G        D                Cadd9
Tore the phone out of the wall
G    D                Cadd9
Only memories, fading memories
        D              G
Blend into the dull tableaux
G D         Cadd9
I want them back

G D         Cadd9
I want them back
        D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G D         Cadd9
I want them back
        D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G D         Cadd9
I want them back
        D                Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G D         Cmaj7 (let ring...)
I want them back
