cottage for sale lyrics – roberta flack

our little dream castle with every dream gone,
is lonely and silent, the shades are all drawn,
and my heart is heavy as i gaze upon
a cottage for sale

the lawn we were proud of is waving in hay,
our beautiful garden has withered away,
where you planted roses,the weeds seem to say,
a cottage for sale.

from every single window, i see your face,
but when i reach a window, there’s empty sp*ce.
the key’s in the mail box the same as before,
but no one is waiting any more,
the end of the story is told on the door.
a cottage for sale.
