"Empty Spaces"
(Gary Kemp)

Once there were times love
When we could touch the air between
And out acroos this room
We'd feel the space with all our schemes
And if we'd just touch hands life would shine
With electric dreams

No matter how many miles
Nothing hurt long-distance-hearts
And there was always something there
That space could never keep apart
But now I know inside that something is died
When we're apart
All we have are
Empty spaces

It's not like we're building walls
Too hard to climb to make us blind
It's just so much numbing space
To hollow out the heart and mind
And I can hear echoes of ghosts of love
We left behind

I'll always love April
We fell in love and we planted seeds
But now we walk through fallen trees
And leaves are crushed beneath
And I will always live in Autumn
Now we're agreed
All we have are
Empty spaces

I thought this was meant to be
Our love had an energy
But only as time evolved
And all of our strength dissolved
And we'll never feel the flame that burned so naked

I walk through Kentish Town
And all the rain rain pouring down
So many people here
But space like this I've never found
And as I get back home and step inside
I realise
All I have
All I have are
Empty spaces
