THIS IS NOT MY ROOM

THIS IS NOT MY ROOM

This is not my room

This room that you see me in

This room that they’ve put me in

This place where the shadows come in and block out the sun

This is not my room

 

This is not my bed

This bed that’s too small for me

I lie alone in this bed among all the people

Who once said they loved me

This is not my bed

 

CHORUS: My room is where our memories lie

Where they were born and where they died

My room is where we laughed and cried

Where we built our dreams

 

This is no weekend break hotel

No panoramic sea-view apartment

No peaceful haven, no green oasis

Not what I’d call a bolt hole

 

This is not my room

This is not my fantasy

When I worked so hard every inch of the way

This is not where I thought I’d be

 

This is not my room

 

 

 

Frank McConnell - from the album This Is Not My Room
