I spent last night trying to write to you
But the words wouldn't come
I just couldn't go on
And the telephone won't do

I'm sick and tired of hearing
"You're never home"
I'm sick in the head and the hotel bed don't feel right
Though I hope it doesn't show
I feel a hollow down below
And there's nothing, nothing for me to say

And I feel the emptyness inside me
I feel the emptyness inside me
I have this feeling and I've gotta get back
This feeling and I've gotta get back to you
Get back to you

(There's no one else)
There's no one else
(There's nothing else)
There's nothing else
(There's no one else)
I hear myself saying again and again
(There's nothing else)
Even if it doesn't show
I feel a hollow down below
And there's nothing, nothing for me to say

And I feel the emptyness inside me
I feel the emptyness
The emptyness inside me
I hope it doesn't show
I've got this feeling
And I've gotta get back this feeling
And I've gotta get back to you

I have the emptyness inside me
I have the emptyness
I have the emptyness inside me
I have the emptyness inside me
I've got nothing
I've got nothing
But the emptyness inside me
I've got nowhere to go
I have nothing to show
But the emptyness inside me
Like a hollow down below
The emptyness inside me
I've got nothing
But the emptyness inside me
I've got nowhere to go
I've got the emptyness inside me

    General CommentI adore this song. There is just something about the loneliness of the road that calls to me.
