Somethin' To Hold

Here in this empty room
My voice is echoing without you
"Cause you're long gone
Headed east for the fall

Hangin' out by the window moon
Wishin' 'bout things
That might or could have been
I found your necklace in a bowl
It's all you left
But it gave me somethin' to hold

It's somethin'
to hold on to
but I need you instead
Won't you come back home now

Shadows move on a windy wall
Changing Lovers into
Shapeless dancers
I knew we'd never have it all
We had enough and it gave me something to hold

It's somethin'
to hold on to
but I need you instead
Won't you come back home now

It's somethin'
It's somethin'
It's somethin' to hold on to
