WORDS

EMPTY EMILY

When your tears came out, they used to cut right through.

But I don’t feel them now. There’s nothing you can do.

When we started off, I thought for sure we’d last.

But now my head just spins like I stood up too fast.

 

I’m empty, Emily.  

 

Your arms go limp. I peeled you to the bone.

I’m the devil’s own son. Here sinking like a stone.

It’s a long incline that I been tumbling down.

Don’t want to see your face when I hit the ground.

 

I’m lying to myself to keep my joy at bay.

I don’t deserve your love. I kick my heart away.

 

I made a bad, bad choice. I know you still love me.

I can’t do this anymore. I got to follow my feet.

My soul is dead for you. It hurts to say it out loud.

But everyone’s a rat. You ought to know that by now.
