I've got an empty house,
that don't bother me,
got an empty bottle,
so the day won't follow me,
I write empty songs,
and the words don't bother me,
but goddamn,
I've got too much time on my hands,
I've got too much time on my hands,
come take all this time off my hands.

When I grow old,
inside of your eyes,
(?)
each one makes me colder,
more resistant to my life,
I saw it coming,
there was no disguise,
you will finish this (?)
how could I have been so surprised?
how could I have been so surprised?

The sun rose,
time for us to part,
walked home,
showing me your scar,
see the knife (?) never touched your heart,
either surely would have,
(?)
(?)
(?)

All I know,
I wished I'd of followed you home,
I wished I'd of followed you home,

I've got an empty house,
that don't bother me,
got an empty bottle,
so the day won't follow me,
I write empty songs,
and the words don't bother me,
but goddamn,
I've got too much time on my hands,
I've got too much time on my hands,

    see the knife (?) never touched your heart,
    either surely would have,
    (?)He did you no harm,
    (?)How can they say he did you no harm?
    (?)How can they say he did you no harm?

    Lyric Correction"
    When I grow old,
    inside of your eyes,
    (?)
    each one makes me colder,
    more resistant to my life,
    "

    Should be

    "
    Night grows inside of your eyes.
    My pain goes away with your goodbyes.
    Each one makes me colder more resistant to my life

    General Comment"see the knife (?) never touched your heart," is "See the knife blades will never touch your heart."

    And "either surely would have" I can't tell if he's saying "would have" or "would pass"

    General CommentYou're all close to what I've thought they were with some exceptions. I think the song's title gives away a little. I think the song's about losing someone to a drug overdose.

    (You got the first verse)

    Night grows, inside of your eyes
    Pain goes, away with your goodbyes
    Each one makes me colder, more resistant to my life
    Never saw it coming, 'cause there was no disguise
    You were finished listening to lies
    How could I have been so surprised?
    How could I have been so surprised?

    Sun rolls, time for us to part
    Walked home, showing me your scar
    They say the knife may as well never touched your arm
    The needle surely would have, heeded you no harm
    How can they say heeded you no harm?
    How can they say he did you no harm?

    All I know, I wish I'd have followed you home
    All I know, I wish I'd have followed you home

    ohhhh-ohhhh ... home

    All I know, I wish I'd have followed you home

    I wish I could call you my own

    I wish I could call you back home

    ohhh-ohhhh

    Shoot it in your arm and send you home

    I wish I could follow you home

    Shoot it in my arm and follow you home
