lyrics

empty halls
filled up with the walls that you still walk through.

i lie awake night and day
these ghosts get in my way
sometimes i drown inside of your wake.

they forced me to watch you walk out,
i tried so hard to stop you.
it takes me down every time
that your spirit reappears.
and i find myself thinking
about inching my way out,
when 'i love you' one last time was all i wanted
to hear.

empty halls filled up
with the walls that you still walk through.

when i take hold of your hand,
the shades of grey and blue reach out and touch me.
i try with all my might to feel you
on these days when you're beside me
try with all my might to feel you
try.

a consciousness debatable,
i breathe you in a second time.
i know the difference,
but it don't take the flesh to bind.
if you're out there,
you should probably know
my trigger finger is the worst of them all
because i know you don't belong here
and i hold on.
i don't know i can ever stop seeing these

empty halls filled up
with the walls that you
still walk through.
i live inside these empty halls
filled up
with the walls that you
still walk through.

i have to catch myself when i'm smiling
cause i know you're gone now,
and i can't keep killing myself.

what's it worth besides a silent movie?
neither one of us is moving.
but every scene we ever wrote
has got this grip around my throat.

i am standing here,
and i am trapped between this air
that hasn't held your breath in who knows how long?
i keep standing here,
and contrary to what is right,
i miss you more as time ticks by.
