Empty Blue

Stared into the empty blue
Thought of how much I feared you
To turn this cloudless sky
Into something to terrify

Could I fall into the sky?
Leave this asphalt road behind?
And the thought made me so numb
I forgot I was driving

And she sits with her young one
Baby daddy's having fun
Every day she's thinking back
To how her life fell off track

And the other man she loved
Is floating up above
A life free from drugs and pain
Had slipped right through her grasp

We shared some tea together
The moment lasted forever
Slaving away for minimum wage
And she's crying

Again, the empty blue
Rested above me and you
And it all seems better now
My life doesn't seem so bad anyhow

And the blue turned into black
And I'm driving home at last
To a better life it seems
But it's all still the same

Now I can see forever
Back then, if I never
Took the chance to make it all better

Who's to say that it couldn't have happened to me?
Loveless life and nothing to make me happy?
How empty would the blue be?
