Empty Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows
With her bare feet laughing
Verse 2
I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell
In my disasters
Verse 3
I walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall
And brown and still
It's hard somehow
To let go of my pain
Verse 4
On past the busted back
Of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field
Collecting rain
Verse 5
Will I always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?
Verse 6
And of these cut throat busted sunsets
These cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
Verse 7
If through my cracked and dusty
Dime store lips
I spoke these words out loud
Would no one hear me?
Verse 8
Lay your blouse across the chair
Let fall the flowers
From your hair
And kiss me
With that country mouth
So plain
Verse 9
Outside the rain is tapping
On the leaves
To me it sounds like
They're applauding us
The quiet love
We've made
Verse 10
Will I always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?
Verse 11
Well I looked my demons in the eyes
Lay bare my chest
Said do your best
To destroy me
Verse 12
See I've been to hell and back
So many times
I must admit
You kinda bore me
Verse 13
There's a lot of things
That can kill a man
There's a lot of ways
To die
Yes, and some already did
And walk beside me
Verse 14
There's a lot of things
I don't understand
Why so many people lie
It's the hurt I hide that fuels
The fire inside me
Verse 15
Will I always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?
