I lay alone in my room like there’s nothing to do
But really I wish I was laying with you like we used to do ‘neath the smiling moon
I’m confused
What can I do?
Don’t tell me I’m doomed to a life without you, without all the things we used to do
You came in my life, changed my point of view on life, love, and what it means to be true
I can’t begin to forget you
But I lie to myself
I’m over you
I empty my piece and dream of you

This bottle’s empty so how can I still be?
This bowl’s empty so how can I still be?
There’s something missing inside of me
Can anything fulfill me?
I’ll find it if it’s the death of me

If you think of me don’t let me know
I’m trying my best to let you go
But this is the life we chose so I take a hit and hit the road
There’s no telling where I’ll go
I wish it was with you though
Then it wouldn’t matter where we go
To Mexico, the Congo, or back home
But I’ve got to leave your memory behind
I might as well be flying blind
I’ve got to take a load off my mind or to the dome down some wine
And keep smiling, tell everyone I’m fine
The least I can do is try to stop wondering why I ever decided you wouldn’t be my guy
I’m doing all I can not to cry
The truth is I can’t find a better high than gazing into your deep eyes

This bottle’s empty so how can I still be?
This bowl’s empty so how can I still be?
There’s something missing inside of me
Can anything fulfill me?
I’ll find it if it’s the death of me

I’ve got to break free of your hold on me
Because you and I will never be
God, please help me
Without your strength I am so weak
There’s a place in my heart you’ll never leave
The rest of it is empty
Like an old house it creeks with lingering memories at even the lightest breeze
Won’t you give me back the keys?
Until you leave I’ll burn it down and try my best not to drown

This bottle’s empty so how can I still be?
This bowl’s empty so how can I still be?
There’s something missing inside of me
Can anything fulfill me?
I’ll find it if it’s the death of me
