Liner Notes: 

I'm pretty fond of this one, so thanks for checking it out:)

I know the song structure might look a little chaotic on paper(screen), but I promise it works put to music! I'll post the song as soon as I get a chance to record it :)f

Lyrics: 

Empty Space

V1
Wish there was something that I could do
To ease myself in the absence of you
I waste my time in strange places
Fill my eyes with stranger faces
All I see is the ghost of you

Pre-Ch
Oh, mind, have mercy on me
While I try to fill the space you make when you leave
I feel it in the gaps between my finger tips
The air upon my parted lips
And the hitch in my chest when I breathe

Chorus
I'm nothing but empty space without you
Got nothing but empty space
Could be, I'm losing my mind
But if I searched, I know I'd find
Nothing but empty space

V2
Wish there was anything I could do
When all I have is the mem'ry of you
Could be a million other voices
They'd all sound like white noise
All I hear is the whisper of you

Pre-Ch
Oh, mind have mercy on me
While I try to fill the space you make when you leave
I feel it in the gaps between my finger tips
The air upon my parted lips
And the hitch in my chest when I breathe

Chorus
I'm nothing but empty space without you
Got nothing but empty space
Could be, I'm losing my mind
But if I searched I know I'd find
Nothing but empty space

Bridge
Yeah, here I am
Sitting all alone with these empty and outstretched hands
Chasing specters with my eyes, hearing voices in my mind
And wishing desperately you were here

I don't want to be here no more
Don't wanna watch your shadow walking out the door
Don't want nothing but your touch, I don't wanna miss you so much
I'm just spinning and spinning my gears

Chorus
I'm nothing but empty space without you
Got nothing but empty space
Yeah, I miss feeling like me, but for now I guess I'll be
Nothing but empty space

QTL, really enjoyed reading Empty Space! Loved the pre-chorus, very powerful for me!

Great write!

Totally works for me. Familiar sentiments too; lots of resonances, feelings kindled by old flames or those no longer with us...

Maudlin? Sure, but some of the best songs follow that road.
