Empty Whiskey Glass

Empty Whiskey Glass

Pictures on the wall of a lonely house
Remind me of what could’ve been
Before my baby walked away
To a life full of drink and sin

Neon lights, loud music and smoky bars
Is the life she chose over me
Now I can’t make her stay at home
No matter how hard I plead

Chorus:
She says our love
Is like an empty whiskey glass
It made her high for a while
But the feeling didn’t last
She has an emptiness
It is deep and it is vast
And she can’t fill it up
With an empty whiskey glass

I found her one night at a bar down town
Dancing with an old friend of mine
I said enjoy it while you can
Before she leaves you behind

Bridge:
I said buddy what she’s looking for
Is something that just can’t be found
She’s like a dog chasing his tail
She just keeps going round and round

Chorus:
She says our love
Is like an empty whiskey glass
It made her high for a while
But the feeling didn’t last
She has an emptiness
It is deep and it is vast
And she can’t fill it up
With an empty whiskey glass
