Lyrics

I would rather not go
back to the old house
I would rather not go
back to the old house

There's too many
bad memories
There's too many memories
there.

When you cycled by
here began all my dreams
the saddest thing
I'd ever seen

And you never knew
how much I really liked you
'cause I never even told you
oh and I meant too

are you still there?
or have you
moved away
or have you
moved away?

I would love to go
back to the old house
but I never will
I never will
I never will.

I've learned the A pattern really well, but even listening to the track over and over again, I cannot see how pattern B has any more than half the number of required notes. It just seems very different. So frustrating! I want to play this song more than anything.
