1. Empires Fall

From the recording Empires Fall


Empires Fall

You just lie there
Blowing smoke clouds in the air
Wish I found you
Somehow see-through

It’s been so long now
Since I cared how to kiss you
You should sleep here
I’m knee-deep in fear

Deny the signs
They all seem too small
Now I don’t wonder
Why empires fall
Do you need me at all?

Our sense of sharing
Sunk to staring out the window
All the songs say
It won’t end this way

Despite what you say
You’re receding away from me
And it’s hurting a lot
But it’s all that I’ve got
And I can’t stop listening
To you leave
