empty handed lyrics – michelle branch

here i am take me
it’s easier to give in
some people mistake me
they only hear what they want to hear
if you’re losing sleep
forgive me
i just can’t keep pretending

i’m packing my bags ’cause i don’t wanna be
the only one who’s drowning in their misery
and i’ll take that chance ’cause i just wanna breathe
and i won’t look back and wonder how it’s supposed to be
how it’s supposed to be

there’s a prism by the window
it lets the light leak in
i wish you would let me
you feel the water but do you swim?
and it’s only me empty-handed
with a childish grin and a camera

i’m packing my bags ’cause i don’t wanna be
the only one who’s drowning in their misery
and i’ll take that chance ’cause i just wanna breathe
and i won’t look back and wonder how it’s supposed to be
how it’s supposed to be

la da da da

i’m packing my bags ’cause i don’t wanna be
the only one who’s drowning in their misery
and i’ll take that chance ’cause i just wanna breathe
and i won’t look back and wonder how it’s supposed to be
how it’s supposed to be

’cause i’m packing my bags
and i won’t be back
