Empty Cup

Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone,
Our clocks are ticking now so before our time is gone.
We could get a house and some boxers on the lawn,
we could make babies and accidental songs.
I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool,
I hope we didn't break it but I'm glad we broke the rules.
My cave is deep now yet your light is shining through,
I cover my eyes still all I see is you.
I know that I've left you,
In places of despair.
I know that I love you,
so please throw down your hair.
At night I trip without you,
and hope I don't wake up,
'cause waking up without you
is like drinking from an empty cup.

I love Damien Rice.

This is one of those songs that transcend music and sing the words that are engraved upon the human heart.

I do too Craig, so very much.

Dawson, that's *exactly* right.
