She fills her veins with her empty.Dreams she can't explain.Trades her body and those giggles

THE EMPTY CUP 2

 

She fills her veins with her empty

Dreams she can't explain

Trades her body and those giggles

In hopes of escaping her pain

Moonbeams and butterflies, petals from roses

Counting out loud crossing fingers and toeses

Unicorns and Teddy all enjoying a sip

Cups full of empty never spill and can't drip

Daddy sat home, and he waited

His baby girl she never came home

He still drowns himself in his bottle

But now he drinks all alone

Her teacup sits on the counter

Emptied of her childhood dreams

He misses the sound of her giggles

and the light of a thousand moon beams

He lifts the cup full of empty

To his lips and takes another drink

Empties out the rest of the bottle

As his pain is poured down the sink

Moonbeams and butterflies, petals and roses

Counting out loud crossing fingers and toeses

Unicorns and Teddy all enjoying a sip

Cups full of empty never spill and can't drip

He traded what was real for his empty

As she relinquished her childhood dreams

Now his baby girl has flown to heaven

On the light of a thousand moon beams

He wishes he could be with his baby

Lift her cup and give her a wink

Say "Mmmm this is so delicious,

it's the best I've ever had to drink!
