This house-moving process is painfully slow
I'm counting the days til I can 'up and go'
To leave here is painful, I just want it done
To be able to say my new chapter's begun.
The bookshelves are empty now, the cupboards are bare
I cant find the aspirins, I've searched everywhere
My head is now throbbing, - for 'moving'- think 'stress'
I'm surrounded by boxes, by clutter, by mess.
Solicitors letters, the searches complete
Do you know where the drains run under the street?
Removals van booked, mortgage offers received
fingers crossed, all's ok now, I'm very relieved.
I've emptied the loft now, I've sorted the shed
Its all packed in boxes, ive dismantled the bed
Ive taken the pictures all down from the walls
And they stand bubble wrapped out in the bare hall
Brown tape and packaging litters the floor
Ive had enough for today, I cant pack anymore
I yearn for the day that the sale is complete
And I see the removals van out in the street
With my house and my life here all loaded inside
We'll depart from here, and I'll be teary-eyed
For the end of an era, but there's a good future to come
I'll be happy again for there's no place like home!
