"Empty Inside" as written by and Michael Martin Jeanne Sagan....
I can't show pain
Long for days
When I am free to feel

Don't want to lose everything
Just want to feel again
My heart would burst for you
If that would make things right

I don't feel anything
Outside the pain you bring
Starting over doesn't look so bad this time

I am not empty inside
Though I long, to make this right

Emotions still touch me
Still I can't feel a thing
Like ghosts they melt into the fog
and leave me cold

Only shadows and impressions
are left for me to hold
My heart would burst for you if that would make you whole

I am not empty inside
Still I long, to make this right
I am not empty inside
Though I long, to make this right

I am not empty inside
Still I long, to make this right
I am not empty inside
(empty inside)
Though I long, to make this right
(make this right)

Don't want to lose everything
Just want to feel again
My heart would burst for you
If that would make things right

I don't feel anything
Outside the pain you bring
Starting over doesn't look so bad this time

I am not empty
I am not empty
I am not empty
I am not empty

    General Commenti disagree, deatcloud. i think it's about a relationship that has been long over, but he wants it to start again. she broke up with him because she thought he was cold and emotionless. he's trying to tell her that he's not hollow, he just doesn't show his emotion.

    General Commentyeah I think this is about a relationship that's over because the girl thought he was emotionless, but he's telling her he's not anymore, becuase of what he felt when she left him.

    I don't feel anything
    Outside the pain you bring
    Starting over doesn't look so bad this time

    General CommentThis song is about is about the end of a relationship or maybe just one that is collapsing. he is saying that because of the pain in the relationship he has become numb and untouchable but he still has enough heart left in him to make it work with his lover - "My heart would burst for you, If that would make things right"

    General Commentgod what an awesome song, i really relate to the phills emotions.

    it is about trying to convince someone you love (who is leaving) that you CAN feel, although you may not wear your emotions on your sleeve - and the pain that this struggle brings.

    my impression.

    raw rock kills!
    ean,// gore.
    inferno.

    General Commentthis song gives me chills
    i think its about a guy in a relationship, thats like falling apart.
    at one point in his life he decided not to show emotion any more, but that doesnt mean he cant feel love, or pain

    General Commentawesome song...its about a relationship that has ended

    I can't show pain----he cannot give the girl the satisfaction of knowing she has hurt him badly
    Long for days
    When I am free to feel---he cannot wait to feel something other that the pain she caused

    Don't want to lose everything
    Just want to feel again--he doesnt want to lose it all but feel happiness again
    My heart would burst for you
    If that would make things right---he tried pouring out his heart to her, but she just shut him down

    I don't feel anything
    Outside the pain you bring--explanatory
    Starting over doesn't look so bad this time---he may need to run away from this and start anew

    I am not empty inside
    Though I long, to make this right--he has so much to give, and wants another chance
