lyrics

The tenderness is what I miss most.
Not the sex or the arguments or the burnt toast.
It’s quiet now you’re not around.
When I’m laying in our bed I can hear every sound.
In this empty house.
And the loneliness is what I fear most.
Not paying the bills or growing old.
It’s boring now you’re not around.
I look for things for things to do that just can’t be found.
In an empty house.

Don’t you know I wouldn’t write a song about just anyone.
Don’t you know I wouldn’t write a song about just anyone.
Don’t you know I couldn’t write a song about just anyone...

The emptiness is what I hate most.
No reality TV or Sunday roast.
It’s so quiet now you’re not around.
When you’re laying in bed paranoia abounds.
In an empty house.

Don’t you know I couldn’t sing a song about just anyone.
Don’t you know I couldn’t sing a song about just anyone.
Don’t you know I wouldn’t sing a song about just anyone...

You don’t know how much this heart’s been breaking since the moment that you left.
With the thoughts that are running through my head I scare myself to death.
Hours seem like days and days they seem like weeks.
Weeks are winter months and months the kind of years you’d rather forget...

Don’t you know I couldn’t write a song about just anyone.
Don’t you know I couldn’t write a song about just anyone.
I hope you know I wouldn’t write a song about just anyone...
