This Box Is Empty Lyrics - Kevin Devine

Review The Song (2)



she's crossing out the details.
dusting off the picture frames, it's saturday.
she's been waiting for the phone to ring.
she's been waiting all night.
but it doesn't matter who's on the line
as long as the voice works.
but you're too scared of what you might say.

so you think it out on paper, hypothetical and safer.
while she's thumbing through her catalogues,
picking birthday cards, her favourite stars.
i guess she's lonelier than you.

and if this box is empty.
go out and find another one.
with a prettier design.
and greater depth inside.
and a lid to keep it all from spilling out.

and you can fill it up with letters.
back when things were better.
and both of you had blinders on
and story books together.
and you pretended away all the bad things all the bad things.

and now she disconnects her phone, after the second ring.
and all the drama you can swallow.
never check your ego.
i guess no one's lonelier than you.

and if this box is empty.
what if this box is empty.
what if if this box is empty.
what if this box is empty.

Interesting song....... | Reviewer: alexander | 3/20/2007

I really enjoy Kevin Devine as a singer/songwriter. He tells a lot of stories I can relate to. I must say that I feel for whoever he had in mind with this song. I think she's probably an extremely special girl with dair hair and green eyes. There's no reason for her to feel bad. She has love - if she only realized there never were any blinder . . . it was real! Oh well she's probably got terrible vision anyway.

I really enjoy Kevin Devine as a singer/songwriter. He tells a lot of stories I can relate to. I must say that I feel for whoever he had in mind with this song. I think she's probably an very special person with dark hair and green eyes. There's no reason for her to feel bad. She has love - if she only realized there never were any blinders . . . it WAS real! Oh well she's probably got terrible vision anyway.
