Empty Faces

love can be a heartbreak — but lost hope is much more a defeat …

Song Lyrics — Empty Faces …

I’m feeling lost in this life
Everything wrong — nothing right
Threw away all that’s mine
Just to know a good time.

I gave up being holy
Even misplaced all my good friends –
Everything passes so slowly
Nights have no end –

Chorus a — (need a heart filled with love
Mine’s broken in too many places –
No place to turn
No one’s around
Only empty faces).

Repeat Chorus a

Should have known I’d end up alone
I’m feeling cold without someone to hold
Trying to forget when you held me tight
Lying here alone throughout the night.

Bridge — (Loves a bad deal when it’s never been real
Not any fun after it’s over and done).

Chorus a — (need a heart filled with love
Mine’s broken in too many places –
No place to turn
No one’s around
Only empty faces).

Chorus b — (I’ve no more tears for cry’n
Try’n to forget the traces
Don’t want to hear more lie’n
I need someone’s love’n embraces
To hide … all those empty faces).

Foot note: I wrote these words to “Empty Faces” upon hearing of Amy Winehouse’s death and listening again to her album “back to black”. So many have left when they were so young. We all have demons in one form or another or have known those that have — some more tragic then others — some addictions greater than others that leave us emotionally “empty — feeling lost and alone”.
