Empty chair
By an empty bed
Empty thoughts
From this empty head
Guilty heart
For what wasn't said and done

Empty eyes
See an empty world
Of faded colors
Where once dreams unfurled
Where time stands still
Where it once had whirled

And danced
And the stars still shined
There was joy and laughter
In this heart of mine
Where the earth would tremble
From a single sigh
And the love that lasts forever
Could never, ever die

Empty house
That had once been filled
With the fruits of life
From a field well tilled
By the loving hands
Of a soul, strong willed
Now gone

After empty hours
In this empty place
With dawn approaching
At its gentle pace
Will the night release
It's cool embrace

Will the sun come up?
Will that star still shine?
Will the pain subside
Within this heart of mine?
Will this hopeless fool
Learn to breathe again?
Will the love that lasts forever
Help me mend
In time?

Nice short and mellow jazz number very melancholy, good style and music backing , ideal for listening on dark early evenings
