Empty glasses

Empty glasses,
so many words unspoken,
promises are broken -
a love affair passes.

No regrets - I know that
pain will become a friend.
I can only make it end
the moment I let you go

I still remember
how you told me
that you needed me,
right from the start.

But I know you never
ever trusted me
enough to tell me honestly
what broke my heart:
she tore us apart.

Empty glasses,
the evening has ended.
How long have we pretended?
We thought this would pass us.

But I know that sometimes
you feel so empty.
You hold back a trembling
that burns in your heart

You know that sometimes
I feel so lonely
and long for only
one - to share that part,
hmm that part - that hidden part - in me.

Loved the openning few bars with the keyboard , really nice song with great melody. Best song I've heard in a long time. Excellent vocals,everything is top notch. Well done!

A warm clear picture of a life slice. The lead vocal held my attention very well.

'Empty glasses' is a beautiful and poignant song. Till knows how to weave a story and make the listener feel her lyrics.
