about

An apostrophe to my friend Emptiness.

lyrics

I don't know how I got this way
been hollowed out by a busy day
I'm waiting here for the sun to rise
I wrote this song just to pass the time

I'm reading through all your books again
cause I know Hemmingway was a stronger man
still he couldn't seem to find a means
to stay with us and dream our dreams

If there's a point
don't let me know
and I'll stay right here
watching shadows grow
by candle light
I'm tired of this night
just sigh
there'll be no sleep tonight

I'm listening when you call my name
O, Emptiness it's you again
I got through changes you stay the same
Let's have a drink
you're my oldest friend

If there's a chance
don't let me try
and I'll stay right here
watch the candle die
nothing inside
I'm tired of this life
and me
but I'm not giving up

stay away from me
I am down, but I will
rise I up with the day
get back up and I will
say that I'm okay
I am empty
but I'll fill back up again
