"Empty Apartment" as written by Benjamin Eric Harper, William Ryan Key, Peter Michael Mosely, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
Call me out
You stayed inside
One you love
Is where you hide
Shot me down
As I flew by
Crash and burn
I think sometimes
You forget where the heart is
Answer no
To these questions
Let her go
Learn a lesson
It's not me
You're not listening now
Can't you see
Something's missing
You forget where the heart is

Take you away
From that empty apartment
You stay
And forget where the heart is
Someday
If ever you loved me
You'd say
It's okay

Waking up
From this nightmare
How's you're life
What's it like there
Is it all
That you want it to be
Does it hurt
When you think about me
And how broken my heart is

Take you away
From that empty apartment
You stay
And forget where the heart is
Someday
If ever you loved me
You'd say it's okay

It's okay to be angry and never let go
It only gets harder the more that you know
When you get lonely if no one's around,
You know that I'll catch you when you're falling down
We came together but you left alone
And I know how it feels to walk out on your own
Maybe someday I will see you again
And you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend

Take you away from
That empty apartment
You stay and forget where the heart is
Someday
If ever you loved me
You'd say it's okay
It's okay it's okay

    General Commenti really enjoy this song.. this song makes you think of when you are there adn you know its going to be a long haul, but you know in your heart you're gonna stick it out. I still agree this is a great song.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful. and i love the way it's just stuck in there in between two relatively happy-sounding songs.

    "When you get lonely if no one's around
    You know that I'll catch you when you're falling down
    We came together but you left alone
    And I know how it feels to walk out on your own"

    that's so great.

    General CommentI think that this song is about a break up that was messy. Say the girl/other person is person X, and the person who did the breaking up is person Y.

    Person Y and person X might ahve been together for awhile, and got pretty close. Then things happened, and it was a nasty break up. "It's okay to be angry and never let go. It only gets harder the more that you know" probably indicates that there was alot of fighting towards the end and how person X never really forgave person Y.

    "When you get lonely if no one's around, you know that i'll catch you if you're falling down" probably is saying that person Y still wants to be a part of their life. And obviously still has some feelings for them.

    So overall, the "translation" that I got from the song was a messy break up. And how both of them are pretty hurt by it, but still want to somehow be a part of eachothers life.

    General Commentthis song makes me think about some of my friends and how we lost touch after graduation. we're not friends anymore but i still have my memories of them and they'll always hold a certain place in my heart.

    "And I know how it feels to walk out on your own
    Maybe someday I will see you again
    And you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend "

    i love that line of the bridge!

    ryan said that this song is about their former bassist (who i assume is their returning bassist, pete) and how hurt he was when he left the band. i think that's where, specifically, the line "We came together but you left alone" comes from.

    General Commentthis song is incredible... it mkaes me think of friendships... a friendship that is over...and one person still desires and cherishes what that friendship once was and still wishes that the friendship was there and strong...
    'It's okay to be angry and never let go
    It only gets harder the more that you know
    When you get lonely if no one's around
    You know that I'll catch you when you're falling down
    We came together but you left alone
    And I know how it feels to walk out on your own
    Maybe someday I will see you again
    And you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend'
    this song is saying, to me, that even tho the friendship is over and they have drifted apart they are both going through similar situations or have expierienced similar thingsand if the person ever needed the help of the old friend he or she would be there no matter what even tho they havent talked in a while... i know it may not make a huge amount of sense or maybe my brain is ahead of my verbal skillls but that is what i think....

    General Commentto me i think this song is about a friendship that has been lost... the first friend regrets that the friendship is over and still loves the other friend...and wants the friend to know that no matter what he or she is going through the first friend will be there and can understand what he/she is going through...

    ...It's okay to be angry and never let go
    It only gets harder the more that you know
    When you get lonely if no one's around
    You know that I'll catch you when you're falling down
    We came together but you left alone
    And I know how it feels to walk out on your own
    Maybe someday I will see you again
    And you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend ....

    even if the first friend is never forgiven and the friendship is never repaired the first friend will always be there to offer help and support where needed and hopefully one day the second friend will realize the amopunt of love the first friend has for her/him and one day they will both be friends again....
