April 1, 2010 - Empty Air


Empty Air

Sometimes I can't see you and I can't feel you
There is nothing but emptiness in my air
Once I felt you all around me
Now I wonder if you're there

I feel so cold and all alone
Not even your shadow's in my sight
And all my heart can think about
Is giving up this fight

With all I have inside I pray and try
To get you back into my life
To feel that I'm a part of you
And stop this pain that's causing all this strife

How much longer do I think I can continue on
Pretending nothing inside has changed
When all I hear is empty air
When I call your name

Then I recall all the promises in your Word
That will fill up this empty space
And they are enough to fill my empty air
And all my tears erase

Life is full empty air, the only voice I hear is the echo of my own.

Once again you call out to the lonely. And once again you have so much attention.
