Story behind the song
'On Empty' is a song, written about the feeling you get when someone stops you from being yourself. It describes what a negative relationship-friendship situation can be like. Be careful what you ask for!
Lyrics
I can’t breathe on empty And that is all you're giving me I can't move if you block me And I'm losing a sense of integrity I can't be myself I can't be all of me When you're taking chunks out of my side I can't give all there is to be If you're right there looking nasty I can't be myself I’m riding on the wings of love I'm riding on the wings of hope I’m riding on the wings of faith Come with me Sitting in a pick up truck Living off a load of luck Drinking too much... lemonade I can't see in front of me When you're taking truth And pushing it away I Can't do all I need to When you're always putting me down I can't be... I'm sailing on the wings of love I'm sailing on the wings of hope I'm sailing on the winds of faith Come with me I’m sitting on a 1st class train Up front in the aeroplane Sitting in a Limousine I've paid my way Everything's gonna be all right Everything's gonna turn out fine Everything's gonna be all right In your heart and mine
