"Every artist was first an amateur." --Ralph Waldo Emerson


Now when I think of you
I have to catch my breath
I’m here and you’ve faded away
And I’m asking why you left
And my heart is breaking
In my hollow chest tonight

I still hear your name
Every once and a while
Most of my time is spent thinking about you
Mixing tears with the smiles
And my head is aching
It feels like it’s breaking tonight

Dead music
That’s all I hear on my radio
Dead music
Just a zombie morning show

There’s no message coming through the lines
And it’s all static tonight
As I try to will you back
With all my weakened might

This world is empty
A puzzle I just can’t comprehend
And each piece is a piece of my heart
That broke off and fell tonight

Dead music
That’s all I hear on my radio
Dead music
Just a zombie morning show

There’s probably a message that I can’t receive
Trying to rip through the static in my soul
And if I never get to read it
Mute the dead air overload

Dead music
That’s all I hear on my radio
Dead music
Just a zombie morning show

Dead music
Dead music

This is a companion piece of sorts to "It's Gone." They were written about the same time, about the same thing.
