A House Is Not A HomeWords & Music by Hal David, Burt Bacharach & Tony Esposito
Recorded by Dionne Warwick, 1964
AM7 D6 AM7 A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sitting there; A9 DM7 Fdim F#m7 Em7 But a chair is not a house, and a house is not a home A7-9 DM7 Bm7 When there's no one there to hold you tight, DM7 D6 Bm7 Bm7-5 AM7 And no one there you can kiss good night. AM7 D6 AM7 A room is still a room, even when there's nothing there but gloom; A9 DM7 Fdim F#m7 Em7 But a room is not a house, and a house is not a home A7-9 DM7 Bm7 When the two of us are far apart, DM7 D6 Bm7 Bm7-5 E7 AM7 And one of us has a brok - en heart. Bridge: D Now and then I call your name, A Gdim And suddenly your face appears; B9 C#m9 B9 Bm9 Fdim But it's just a crazy game; when it ends, it ends in tears. AM7 D6 AM7 Darling, have a heart — don't let one mistake keep us apart. A9 DM7 Fdim F#m7 Em7 I'm not meant to live alone; turn this house into a home. A7-9 DM7 Bm7 When I climb the stair and turn the key, DM7 D6 Bm Bm7 Bm7-5 E7 AM7 Oh, please be there, still in love with me.
