    Carry Me Along


    View all

    There's a girl I used to know
    Who promised that my troubles wouldn't hurt me
    All she wanted was my happiness
    And as long as I was truthful, she'd never desert me

    I have a journal with her name jotted down
    But couldn't tell you if you begged me
    All that's left of her is scattered through my mind
    Mismatched images and sentences she said

    She said "open up to me
    If you let me in I'll try and help you"
    So she cracked me open and looked inside
    But I am empty

    A few years later, I was slipping
    and as I fell, arms wrapped around me
    She raised me up and held me close
    It seemed my saviour had finally found me

    She said "Close your eyes
    and let me fill whatever's missing"
    Well darling, look at me and tell me why
    I am empty

    I looked in a mirror but saw nothing inside
    I guess I've always been a frame
    Everything I've outlined has run away or died
    When I cried out for company, only emptiness came

    I met a girl last night
    We spoke in whispers til the bar closed
    As we were leaving, she asked my name
    Pleased to meet you, I am empty
