1. Empty Rooms

From the recording Brendan & the Strangest Ways

Every night a heart bursts into flames
That a studio apartment could scarcely contain
Morning comes and just one thing’s for sure
The next eleven months spent tied down to a hardwood floor

You deserve a voice to sing for you
Strong enough to fill seven years’ worth of empty rooms
Words chosen with care best to recall
An unforgiving world that’s done a number on us all

Coat and hat a cell phone and some keys
Go recite your lines and play the tired old routine
A thankless job remembering to bleed
Sometimes a heart bursts into pieces just to feel at ease
