You are just a distant memory..
it's been so long since you last came to call.
I don't know how much longer it will be
til I cannot remember you at all.

So bring down these shutters and lock all the doors..
yeah these four walls no longer hold me like you once did.
Put out the fire, turn out the lights,
I guess it's time to leave this home behind.

Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...

Now and then I see you in my dreams
when I awake I have to take the loss again.
It makes me wonder what we leave behind
when fate decides to take us from the ones we love.

So bring down these shutters, lock all the doors..
these four walls no longer hold me like you once did.
Put out the fire, turn out the lights..
I guess it's time to leave this home behind.

Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...

The seasons pass, the months and years,
the distance and the tears
And all I have left is fading more and more
with every passing day.
The sound of you is distant now --
it's almost out of reach.
But the way that I feel is strong enough to hold
your memory with me.

Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...
Ay-ah-oh...

You are just a distant memory..
it's been so long since you last came to call.
