"Hollow as a Bone" as written by and Michael Timmons....
She hugged his head so hard to her heart
it made her gasp for air
If this was not the way Love felt
then for love she did not care
I want to run beside a moving train
yelling farewells in the rain
The tears will be bittersweet,
'cause I know I'll see him again

[Chorus]
If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone

He could not help but hang his eyes
her beauty held him so
If this was not a state of Grace
then Grace he'd never know
I want to yell farewell from a crowded pier
just me and a thousand good-byes
The tears will be bittersweet,
'cause soon she'll be back my side

[Chorus]

You won't lose me, he replied,
together our lives have been sewn
If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone
We will kiss goodnight under a starlit sky
whisper oaths at a lumbering moon
dream sweet dreams before the morning comes
and serves us the dawn in our room

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is truly a deep song of vast, boundless, immeasurable love that most people could not phantom.... ummm "We will kiss goodnight under a starlit sky whisper oaths at a lumbering moon
    dream sweet dreams before the morning comes
    and serves us the dawn in our room" ...oh yeah

    General CommentThis is one of "our songs" with my wife and I. We did 3 years (really) long distance dating in our early 20s with me in Paris and her in Phoenix. In the times between seeing each other you never really know what the heck to think of the relationship, you just know without it you would feel as hollow as a bone.

    The reunions, departures, the roller coaster ride between feeling empty and feeling a state of grace together is tough to describe. This song comes close. When you are together you make the most of the time late into the night, then sleep the best exhausted sleep until the morning comes and you make the most of it again. Then you have to say a thousand goodbyes again and be apart.

    We're celebrating our 15th anniversary soon. Together our lives have been sewn.
