  1. Empty Balconies

From the recording Luxury & Waste

Lyrics

Empty Balconies

They can look so lonely
These empty balconies
Hanging on some wall
Tied up
No prospect of release
Can’t go in when it gets cold
Stuck with the sun
Stuck with the same view

Day and night
Waiting for someone to come
And make the moment special
Leave some magic there to vibrate
Day and night
Waiting to be close to life
Better someone full of pain and ache than no one

It can be so lovely to have a balcony
To fill it up with flowers for everyone to see
You just go in if it gets cold
Or you sit under the sun
And watch the view

Through day and night
But waiting for someone to come
and make the moment more special
Leave some magic there to vibrate
Day and night
Waiting to be spotted
by someone who’d want to come up, stay, and never go

I’ve changed my mind about these balconies
They’re not empty, they are filled with opportunities
And aren’t half as sad a sight as any balcony
Filled with someone lonely
