this is the old house
we used to live in
this is the space in between
what is lost and what is gone

don't ask me about the value, and what it costs
cause this is so out of your reach anyway

i call this agony
cause wherever i go
it's already been here

i find it hard to breathe
cause whatever i take up
has been taken before

everything's just an approach
we can just try to get close
but we won't ever come to the point

and in case i let you see
what this all means to me
what you see will be your own reflection

so i call this sympathy
cause wherever we go
we go there alone

i find it hard to breathe
cause whatever i take up
has been taken before

we just try to get close to it
we just try to get close to it
we just try to get close to it
we just try to get close to it

i call this sympathy
cause wherever we go
we go there alone

i find it hard to breathe
cause whatever i take up
has been taken before

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics.

    This is the old house
    We used to live in
    This is the space in between
    What is gone and what is lost.

    Don't ask me about the value, and what it costs
    Cause this is so out of your reach anyway

    And I call it agony
    Wherever I go
    It's already been here

    And I find it hard to breathe
    Whatever I take up
    Has been taken before

    Everything's just an approach
    We can just try to get close
    But we won't ever come to the point

    And in case I let you see
    What it all means to me
    What you see will be your own reflection

    And I call it empathy
    Wherever we go
    We go there alone

    And I find it hard to breathe
    Whatever I take up
    Has been taken before

    we just try to get close to it,
    we just try to get close to it,
    we just try to get close.
    We just try to get close to it,
    We just try to get close to it,
    We just try to get close.

    And I call it empathy
    Wherever we go
    we go there alone.

    I find it hard to breathe
    Whatever I take up
    has been taken before.

    And I call it empathy
    Wherever we go
    we go there alone.

    I find it hard to breathe
    Whatever I take up
    Has been taken before.

    And I call
    I call it
    I call it empathy (just trying to get close)
    I call it,
    I call it empathy,
    wherever we go, we go there alone.
