Lyrics

Empty Tunes

Written By: Jenny Eck/Chris Cunningham

"Empty Tunes"

(Vrs 1)

You left your guitar case in the corner of my bedroom.
Makes me feel like the music to my favorite songs has left me too.
Alone, with nothing but the harmonies to your empty tunes.

(Vrs 2)

All my friends try to convince me to listen to new ones.
No replacing the magic you and I had in our song.
It's over, and I can't go on with your empty tunes.

(Brdg)

Once your baby and your lover,
now a joke, you need your cover,
no time left over for us to play
these days.

(Vrs 3)

The best part of any sad love song is the silence at the end ... that makes it possible for another.
I (just) need a chance to fill
my heart again
after your empty tunes.

(repeat Brdg)
