Story behind the song
I worked on this hook and idea for several months before inviting my lovely and talented cowriter Melissa Yamello on board to help give it the wings it needed.
Lyrics
Empty © Colleen Laylon, Melissa Yamello words/music BMI, 2014 Vox-Beau Fuller Piano, Production- David Norris V1 Orange stray cat's sittin' in your Empty parkin' space Dandelions are poppin' up all over the place Blue Big Wheels playin' hide-an-seek with the weeds Girl l can't find it in me ain't mowed the grass in weeks Climb Parked here cry'in in this driveway, again tonight Bet the neighbors think, that I've lost my mind..... Chorus Empty.... this house just don't feel like home anymore each day.. it gets harder then the day before Empty rooms, empty beds, Empty hole in my chest, I'm hanging on... to ev'ry memory without you and the kids... here with me I'm so... Empty V2 Walkin' up the front porch there's no piles of toys an' shoes Ain't no pretty flowers to remind me of you Can't help it I still pray your all waitin' at the door But when I turn that key, silence cuts me to the core Climb I long to hear little footsteps racin' down the hall and the laughter that we shared, bouncin' off these walls Partial Chorus Empty.... this house just don't feel like home anymore each day.. it gets harder then the day before Empty rooms, empty beds, Empty hole in my chest, I'm hanging on... to ev'ry memory without you and the kids... here with me Bridge He was driving drunk, when he crossed that line and hit your mini van head on that night I was your husband, and their daddy but he took the man I used to be Repeat Full Chorus
