"A House Is Not a Home" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight,
And no one you can kiss good night

A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house,
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends it ends in tears

Darling, have a heart
Don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn my key,
Oh, please be there still in love with me

Oh oh oh, I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key,
Darling, please be there still in love with me
