The Lyrics are as follows :

She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows with her bare feet, laughing
And I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell in my disasters

Walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall and brown
And still it’s hard somehow to let go of my pain
On past the busted back
of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field collecting rain

Will I always feel this way ā€’
So empty, so estranged?

And of these cut-throat busted sunsets,
these cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
If through my cracked and dusted dime-store lips
I spoke these words out loud would no one hear me?
Lay your blouse across the chair,
Let fall the flowers from your hair
And kiss me with that country mouth so plain.
Outside the rain is tapping on the leaves
To me it sounds like they’re applauding us,
The quiet love we’ve made.

Will I always feel this way
So empty, so estranged?

Well, I looked my demons in the eyes
laid bare my chest, said “Do your best, destroy me.
You see, I’ve been to hell and back so many times,
I must admit you kind of bore me.”
There’s a lot of things that can kill a man
There’s a lot of ways to die
Yes, and some already dead that walk beside me
There’s a lot of things I don’t understand
Why so many people lie
Well, it’s the hurt I hide that fuels the fires inside me

Will I always feel this way
So empty, so estranged?

 

This song is stuck in mind for over a week . And the reason why I liked this song so much are the lyrics . I find them relatable and so much real . I think the song is about how empty and estranged he feels when the love of his life don’t have a clue about the darkness in his life . She laughs , walks around the garden and have her moments while he just stands there thinking how much lucky he is to have her but at the same time face his own demons that are trying to crawl into his perfect world which is why he feels empty . She is plain and have goodness in her while he is just opposite and have faced depression and darkness for a long time maybe since the beginning . Sometime when you face pain and loneliness for a long time, it becomes a part of who you are and this is the case here . As he said in the third verse, “he is been hell too many times that his demons now bore him”, and clearly states that emptiness is now a part of him . And also in last verse he said “There are lot of ways to die and some already dead that walks beside him“, which says that it is not necessary that you just die physically , sometimes you’re emotionally dead because of too much hurt .

So in the end he is still fighting his demons while at the same time trying to maintain a normal life with the love of his life And he ask himself ” Will I always feel this way , So empty, So estranged ? ” .
