House of Ghosts (Alphaville)

I'm stuck in the house that once belonged to you I'm stuck in the house, lost without myself I'm stuck in the house, don't know where I'm goin' to I'm stuck in the house, dust upon the shelf The pale moon's standing still, frozen on the ridge The stars tiptoe to their ancestral places The books on the wall dream ominous dreams And armies of shadows are walking off their pages I'm stuck in the house that once belonged to you I'm stuck in the house, lost without myself I'm stuck in the house, don't know where I'm goin' to I'm stuck in the house, dust upon the shelf The names and numbers grow meaningless in my mind, Patterns desintegrate on the black surface of night And since the moon arose, she swallowed all memories Insatiable hunger she bears that never will cease I'm stuck in the house... I'm stuck in the house I'm stuck in the house I'm stuck in the house... I'm goin' now, there's nothing left to do The door closes behind me, the moon had her fill too The night turns itself over into a newborn day The key's under the doormat for the next who comes to stay... He's stuck in the house that once belonged to you Stuck in the house, lost without himself He's stuck in the house, don't know what he will do He's stuck in the house, dust upon the shelf Stuck in the house Stuck in the house (the names and numbers) That once belonged to you (patterns desintegrate) Stuck in the house (on the black surface of night) (And since the moon arose) He's stuck in the house (she swallowed all memories) Don't know what he will do (insatiable hunger she bears) He's stuck in the house, that never will cease... Always, always (stuck in the house) - And I wonder, leaving from there Was always so sad (Always...)
