Verse:

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


Pre-chorus:
Em7 D                      Cadd9
Why did you paint the walls
Em7  D                       Cadd9
Why did you clean the floor
Em7 D                    Cadd9    D
Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door

Chorus:
G       D                          Cadd9 Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G      D                      Cadd9                D
Why did you keep the mousetrap? Why did you keep the dishrack?
G               D                       Cadd9                                     D
these things used to be mine, I guess they still are, want 'em back

Verse:
Broke into the old apartment
Fourty-two stairs from the street
Crooked Landing, crooked landlord, narrow laneway filled with crooks
This is where we used to live

Prechorus:
Why did they pave the lawn
Why change the lock
Why did I have to break in, I only came here to talk

Chorus:
This is where we used to live
How is the neighbor downstairs?
How is her temper this year?
I turned up your TV and
stomped on the floor just for fun


Bridge:
Em7 D G G/F# Cadd9 Em7
I know we don't live here anymore
Am7 D G G/F# Cadd9 Em7
We bought an old house on the Danforth
Em7 D G G/F# Cadd9 Em7
She loves me, her body keeps me warm
Cadd9 D G
I'm happy here

Chorus:
But this is where we used to live
Broke into the old apartment
Tore the phone out of the wall
Only memories, fading memories, blending into dull tableaux
I want them back
