It's Never Been Empty

Song Description

The constant quest to always get better and find happiness can leave us constantly searching, never satisfied, and always hoping we'll find the answers we want. When, I don't think we ever really will....and that's not something to fear.

Song Length 4:14 Genre Folk - Contemporary, Rock - Indie/Low-Fi
Tempo Slow (71 - 90) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Mood Composed Subject Encouragement


It happens in a dream
We're all of a sudden here
And we move along

We can't wait to grow older
Because they all seem to know
What we don't know

What we know is that its all been empty
But we think that they understand
So we don't think through why
its all been empty
Because one day we think we'll understand

In a blink we're on our own
Surrounded by others
Who don't have a clue

But by now we think we should know
Or at least have to show
That we know

We stand around and feel real proud
Without a clue as to what to do
We're told, "Fake it til you make it!" "No pain no gain!" "Pretend everyone is nude!"

The walls go up and the trust goes down
"Just do what's best for you!"
While the real one's work to tear the walls down
The fake one's might just sue you.

With a ring and my first kid
It finally settled in
If I don't know I'll never know

And now I can finally live
Knowing what I don't know
Has let me go

And what we know is that
Its never been empty
We just thought that we should understand
But understand that its never been empty
And a gift that we'll never plan
