Success Has Made A Failure Of Our Home

Words & Music:

Sinead O'Connor



We used to go out walkin' hand in hand.

    A               G                  D

You told me all the big things you had planned.


It wasn't long 'til all your dreams came true.

   A              G                 D

Success put me in second place with you.



    G                          D

You have no time to love me anymore

      A              G                D

Since fame & fortune knocked upon our door.

G                            D

I spend all my evenings all alone.

   A               G              D

Success has made a failure of our home.


If we could spend an evening now & then

Perhaps we'd find true happiness again

You never hold me like you used to do

It's funny what success has done for you
