1. Since You've Been Gone 4/25/2008

Since You've Been Gone

It's a shell of a home
Since you've been gone
Haunted by your footsteps
The third floor to the bedroom
still creaks.
And, lights on, I'll wait for you to come.

But there's no flame to burn bright to anymore;
no hearth in the home

[Hata Bildir]
