In between two brownstone buildings,
brick walls covered all in ivy leaves...
I was waiting in the doorway,
counting people on the city streets,
whispering your name.
Whispering your name...

And this is where you stood,
this is where we stayed,
this is the very same place,
very same place I
found myself.
And this is where we lived,
this is where you'd lie,
this is the very same place,
very same place we
fell asleep on piano keys...
Oh, oh,
I left my heart in, I left my heart in
a place that I know well...
this building on Commonwealth.

Nights grew long and we'd grow tired of basement walls,
we'd take to Boston's streets.
Days wore on for hours, endless,
we'd grow restless in the August heat...
Follow you,
follow me.

And this is where you stood,
this is where we stayed,
this is the very same place,
very same place I
found myself.
And this is where we lived,
this is where you'd lie,
this is the very same place,
very same place we
fell asleep on piano keys...
Oh, oh,
I left my heart in, I left my heart in
a place that I know well...
this building on Commonwealth.

I really felt it when we were walking on Boylston, and
I kept you close to me all the way down Newbury, and
when we would go back home,
I'd just want you alone.
I held the elevator, just to be with you longer.

And this is where we stood,
this is where we stayed,
this is the very same place,
very same place we
found ourselves.
And this is where we lived,
this is where we'd lie,
this is the very same place,
very same place we
fell asleep on piano keys...
Oh, oh,
I left my heart in, I left my heart in,
I left my heart in, I left my heart in,
I left my heart in, I left my heart in
a place that I know well...
this building on Commonwealth.
