"Empty Baseball Park" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Why should I hate you?
After all, it's been so long
Since I lived in town.
Let it go for now.

Have a drink at your favorite bar 'til dark.
Stumble into empty baseball park.
Strike one and strike two,
I guess we're both out.

Stumble past the record store, end up at the movies,
Try and think of something else, but nothin's comin' to me.

Stumble past the record store, end up at the movies,
Try and think of something else, but nothin's comin' to me.

You do this to me.
You do this, and I oblige
And I fight.

Why should I miss you?
After all, it's been so long
Since I felt your kiss.
How did it come to this?

Stumble past the record store, end up at the movies,
Try and think of something else, but nothin's comin' to me

Stumble past the record store, end up at the movies,
Try and think of something else, but nothin's comin' to me.

I let you do this to me.
I must be crazy,
I must be crazy,
I must be crazy,
I must be
I must be
I must be

    General CommentI love this song. I just had to add it. I read that it's about this girl from his hometown down in Carolina. When the bars closed, he and this girl would go to this old baseball park just to sit in the stands, smoke cigarettes, and talk a while longer before going home. Ryan would pretend like there was a game going on and shout out things like "You gotta swing, batter!" or "Slide, ya bum!" and it would make her laugh.

    Little experiences like that can form real emotional connections. Years later, miles away, and he hasn't been able to let her go.

    What can you do? Go out for a walk, seek out distractions, and try not to feel foolish about having emotions.
