Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles – original song

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles is an original song about the self-deception we all use to keep our dreams alive..and our lives moving forward. I hope it’s meaningful to you and that you enjoy it!

You can download it from bandcamp, and I’ll have it up on iTunes and the rest in a week or so.

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
by Richard McCargar

Verse 1

Rubber bands on peach crates
I played as George and John


There’s no future in it Son
I said, Someone’s gonna be the one


My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away

All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way

Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind

Verse 2


Must have played their songs a million times
to make them come out right

Every note and chord was magic
the melody makes you high

Every song taught me a lesson
about what they felt inside

I put pen to paper
Pushed My Ego Aside


Chorus:


Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind


Verse 3
 
When I started my song 
they began to sway


That’s when I knew 
I was born to play

My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away


All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way


Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Free My Mind

The lyrics to “So Alone”

Lost them all, when he passed away

I withdrew, and they slipped away

You Can’t Go Home……I’m so alone

We all lose……..when someone dies

You can see it….in our eyes

Left the city that had been my home

Felt the need to forget and roam

You Can’t Go Home……I’m so alone

We all lose……..when someone dies

You can see it….in our eyes

Then found love, settled down

made our home, in a little town

You Can’t Go Home……I’m so alone

We all lose……..when someone dies

You can see it….in our eyes

Our children came, gave their love freely

I stopped running, away from me

You Can’t Go Home……I’m so alone

We all lose……..when someone dies

You can see it….in our eyes

When my kids left home, and said goodbye

Time passed away, and so did I

They Can’t Go Home……They’re not alone

We all lose……..when someone dies

You can see it….in their eyes
