I have been there. And you have been there. It was a relationship that was not going anywhere and yet, we were still saying "I Love You" - but not truly meaning "I LOVE You!" Over time, in relationships, actions and behaviors become habit and telling your significant other that you love them, can often times become routine and overlooked. The reality is that many people are in relationships where they still say "I love you" but don't mean "I love you" and that is why I wrote this song. The words are "empty" at times...with the wrong person. And yet, we all long for that perfect relationship. For an "angel" to come into our life and connect with us like no other.
I wrote this song so that it started with the disappointing and ended with the possibilities. Enjoy!
Empty I Love You Lyrics Written and Produced by Justin Honaman / John Carrozza Copyright 2010
V1 It started innocent n' simple, Two lives crossed n' stars, shot to the moon, Emotions racing, Loving, playing, Spent each day talking 'bout I-do's, Exchanged vows, took off happily ever after, Something changed, tears replaced laughter, Little touching, hugging, or kissing, Silence, secrets, two hearts broken,
Chorus 1 No more empty I Love You's, Cheap kisses, Or fake I-Do's, No fear of lonely blues, It's time that I said goodbye to you, I once thought you were my angel, I've got a life to live, no time to lose, Trustin' God to point me to, No more empty I Love You's.
V2 Time went by, walls built between, Smiles and touches, a distant theme, Words of love turned to talk about nothing, Her touch went cold, my soul went out searching, I looked into her eyes and saw, Someone else, good God what's wrong, No more living a lie, Hoping to find, Freedom and a happy song.
Chorus 2 No more empty I Love You's, Cheap kisses, Or fake I-Do's, No fear of lonely blues, It's time that I said goodbye to you, I once thought you were my angel, I've got a life to live, no time to lose, Trusting God to point me to, No more empty I Love You's.
Bridge Threw old pictures out, to the trash, Memories lost but ever last, Empty fourth finger by my side, Back on my own looking to find,
Chorus 3 No more empty I Love You's, Cheap kisses, Or fake I-do's, No fear of lonely blues, I'm hoping to say my hello's to you, Maybe you're my lost angel, Life is short, there's no time to lose, Trusting God to point me to, No more empty I Love You's.
