"Empty Spaces" as written by John M Shanks and Mitchell Allan Scherr....
I'm not afraid to go backwards and fix what we broke
My gaze falls behind, you make desire seem so easy
I hold off sleep, it's so silent without you here
Don't give up now, it would all be for nothing

I believe in second chances
I believe the years forget

Let me fill these empty spaces
Better late than never / Stay forever
Let me fill this empty space
There's always room for one more mistake

Can you feel that
I think we're moving in the right direction
I was someone else then
I'd take it back if you would let me

We were never this close when we were young
Every night I whisper your name at the top of my lungs

    General CommentAny guy who's ever been still in love with a girl long after she's left him knows this song as though he wrote it. I love how he says "there's always room for one more mistake"... it's like he's saying that even if it doesn't work out, he still wants to try again... and again, and again if that's what it takes. I do believe in second chances, and I do believe the years forget.
