"Empty" as written by and James Samuel Iii/lewis Harris....
How could it be that you know me
My deepest fears my fantasies
Confide in you what no one knows
But it feels so real

(when I close my eyes)
I can see your face
(when I lick my lips)
I can taste your smile
(when I see your name)
My heart starts to race
(if I can't read your thoughts)
Then I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
Whoa I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)

Is this a new way to love
Never face to face is it enough?
Does it really count or am I a fool?
So tell me please, am I wasting my time?

Your phrases
Descriptive
And through the textured words

With beauty
You post it
And use such colored verbs
We've never met
Ooh

(when I close my eyes)
I can see your face
(when I lick my lips)
I can taste your smile
(when I see your name)
My heart starts to race
(if I can't read your thoughts)
Then I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
Whoa I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)

I'm rushin home to turn you on
Sometimes you're there sometimes you're gone
Wait for hours for your return
So tell me please, am I wasting my time?

Your phrases
Descriptive
And through the textured words

With beauty
You post it
And use such colored verbs

So tell me you think that maybe we've gone insane?
To find a, a lover and through the words of pain
We've never met
Ooh

(when I close my eyes)
I can see your face
(when I lick my lips)
I can taste your smile
(when I see your name)
My heart starts to race
(if I can't read your thoughts)
Then I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
Whoa I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)

When I lick my lips
I can taste your smile
My heart starts to race
I can taste your smile

(when I close my eyes)
I can see your face
(when I lick my lips)
I can taste your smile
(when I see your name)
My heart starts to race
(if I can't read your thoughts)
Then I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)
Whoa I feel empty
(when I close my eyes)

(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)
(when I close my eyes)

Damn, Disconnected

    General CommentI think this song is about talking to someone over the internet, she can talk to them about anything just like a real friend. She's trying to imagine them. Talking over the net is the new way of meeting someone face to face isn't enough because you cant see them but get to know what their like, she is now in love with this person she waits for them to come on inpatiently, she knows this person but she dont thats why she feels emty. I like this song because I feel I connect to it. nice 1 jan!

    General CommentYeah i agree with spam. It'a about on online romance. It's a feeling of loenliness and then finding this person online that makes you fell so much better and then become your everything in more or less words. So whenever you are without them (not online and things like that) you feel lonely....empty

    General Commentit's about being fulfilled by something/someone you can't see or touch. It feels good, and you feel complete until the lines are cut.
