Empty Handed 04:07
My heart is an empty vessel Drifting out to sea I try my best to be what you want me to be. You can try and help me. You could drown me gently. You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say. I hear running water Hear you knocking on the door. I spent an hour or more Just lying on the bathroom floor. You can try and help me. You could drown me gently. You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say. And you You could walk away Empty handed You You could walk away Empty handed. The wave that came has broken And the void has swallowed me. A door before stands ajar I thought I'd run but I'm not free. You can try and help me. You could drown me gently. You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say. And you You could walk away Empty handed You You could walk away Empty handed.

You are, brittle like the wind But I can, see right through your skin. Well you've got such beautiful bones And I love you like a river loves a stone. I am, fickle as I'm thin I shut you out, but you still got in. My worst intentions have all been overthrown And now I love you like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. I love you like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. I love you like a river loves a stone. You are, brittle but you'll bend And I may, break you but you'll mend. Well you paint me with such subtle tones And I love you like a river loves a stone. We are, brilliant though we're flawed I wish you'd be a little self-assured. Your best intentions, have all been overthrown And now I love you - like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. I love you like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. I love you like a river loves a stone. Well I could sit and stare at you for hours Like a bouquet of funeral flowers But every leaf is painted black And every petal is as pale as wax. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. I love you like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone. Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
