"Void" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
Come out from the burning fire butterfly
Let me lock you in my room and keep you
For a while
Could you be the answer to my every prayer?
Could you be the one for who I care?

Come into my arms and let your worries die
Come out from the web of all your tangles lies
But be true to me and I'll be true to you
Judge me not for what I've done but what I'll do

A million nights have led
To this one that we are spending
And I know it's better here
Than anywhere I've been going
With every morning grew
A void more wide and endless

Come out from the burning fire butterfly
Let me lock you in my room and keep you
For a while
You watch over me and I'll watch over you
And if you go tomorrow choke me 'till I'm blue

A thousand days have passed
In this house she and I were sharing
And I hate myself for it
But I have stopped caring
The Marilyn sky tonight
Is so black and blue and beautiful

    General CommentThis song, his voice, the tone of the music fill voids in sound. True story.

    General CommentGreat song. One of my absolute favorite declarations: "The guitar leans against the couch"

    That is so vivid. When guitar players visit other places, the leaning guitar becomes the center of the room to them, even if it is in a corner of the house.

    General CommentThe thing I love about this song is the fact that I don't know if I should feel sad or happy when I hear it. I'm happy at how good it is, but I'm sad by his somber delivery. I'm happy at how accepting it feels, yet feel like his words mean he is devastated. A part of me feels like this song is trying to accept that he's attained second-best, but not his true love. He's trying to reconcile the fact that this girl is not actually the ideal pick for him, but he tries to make due and love her in the same way he loves the other. By the end, I feel like he's lost his sense of delusion and finally accepts that he's living a facade.

    General CommentLyrics:

    Find another corner of the house
    When you need to get away
    A guitar leans against the couch
    Sometimes I pick it up and play
    Loosen and stretch its ancient strings
    Until it sounds the way I feel
    Brush my thumb against it soft
    Give it life or give it pause

    When you look up in my eyes
    I'm looking down in yours
    All looks good up in the sky
    Down to your woolly carpet floor
    And I know that I have picked
    The most perfect sunflower yet
    Even on a sketchy day
    Just outside her shore we stay

    When all its colours turn and dry
    Will you live or will you die?
    When all its poets fall away
    Will you go or will you stay?

    Fill the void in me now
    Making love to me girl
    Red light cruising the night
    Red light getting me home

    Driving down the freeway in your truck
    I watched the river flowing up
    Headlights cutting through the night
    Hear them pass this place in time
    And I know that I have slept
    In the warmest bedroom yet
    Even on the coldest day
    Here inside her shore we stay

    A verse of hope
    There on that reel
    Lets you know the way I feel
    Ram my fists up in your hair
    Feel me cruise up in the air

    Fill the void in me now
    Making love to me girl
    Red light cruising the night
    Red light getting me home

    Fill the void in me now
    Making love to me girl
    Red lights float in the night
    Red lights getting me home

    Fill the void in me now
    Smile down on me girl
    Red light cruising the night
    Red lights getting me home

    Fill the void in me now
    Making love to me girl
    Red lights float in the night
    Red light getting me home

    Pull the weight of me now
    Wrapped around me so good
    Red light cruising the night
    Red lights getting me home

    Pull the weight off me now
    Wrapped around me so good
    Red light cruising the night
    Red light getting me home

    Fill the void in me now
    Making love to me girl
    Red lights cruising the night
    Red lights getting me home
