Very current with a clever hook. Difficult song to sing requiring a good vocal range, very well performed. A contemporary arrangement with excellent instrumentation and production. Deserves to be a hit.

    - Bob Bentley

What a great voice. I'm amazed. The arrangement and instrumentation etc are terrific. Great song.

    - SYLVIA SEMEL
Lyrics

LIVING ON EMPTY
Copyright 2014. All rights reserved.

VERSE 1:
The mill has been abandoned for ten years.
Weeds took over the parking lot.
News man says things are improving.
I tell you 'round here they're not.

PRE-CHORUS 1
Main street looks like a ghost town--
Empty store fronts all around.

CHORUS :
People like you, people like me--
A payday away from poverty.
Cost of living keeps going up.
The paycheck is never enough.
Empty wallet, empty gas tank, I'm living on empty.
Living on empty. Living on empty.

VERSE 2
Boss man shipped my good job down to Mexico,
Where the board earns more and pays less.
The suits on The Hill can't wait to catch the plane.
They don't care about us or what is best.

PRE-CHORUS 2
At least the food bank isn't bare.
I've always worked hard, it isn't fair.

CHORUS :
People like you, people like me--
A payday away from poverty.
Cost of living keeps going up.
The paycheck is never enough.
Empty wallet, empty gas tank, I'm living on empty.
Living on empty. Living on empty.

BRIDGE:
I believe in the American Dream,
But things are harder than they should be.

CHORUS :
People like you, people like me--
A payday away from poverty.
Cost of living keeps going up.
The paycheck is never enough.
Empty wallet, empty gas tank, I'm living on empty.
Living On Empty.

TAG:
But I'm gonna find a way
to fill up empty.
Fill up empty.
