"Empty Word" as written by and Graham Coxon....
I could have laughed all night
When you said that to me
With your mud red eyes looking straight through me
Cause love is such an empty word
And life's hollow and absurd
And I, I'll just never learn

I know you laughed all night
After you said that to me
You bared you teeth so white
Like you were hungry for me
And you, you're just so complete
And I, I'm just such a freak
And we, we just can't compete

I got that feeling and it's weighing me down
Like a really old, really old friend
Like a really old, dirty old friend

I could have cried all night
When you say that to me
Cause you have no right
To be talking to me
Cause love is such an empty word
And life is hollow and absurd
And I, I'll just never learn
I feel the pressure and it's burning me out
Like a really old, dirty old friend

    General CommentSomehow, his voice rminds me of Conor Oberst...or maybe just this song.
    peace with both of their fans...I am too.
