  • Don't get stuck in the past
    Say your favorite things at mass
    Tell your mother that you love her
    And go out of your way for others
    Sit beneath a light that suits ya
    And look forward to a brighter future

    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty (life)

    Sink as far down as you can be pulled up
    Happiness really ain't all about luck
    Let your demeanor be your deep down self
    And don't sacrifice your life for your health
    When you speak, speak sincere
    And believe me friend, everyone will hear

    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty (life)

    Bring your own two cents
    Never borrow them from someone else
    Buy yourself a flower every hundredth hour
    Throw your hair down from your lonely tower
    And if, and if
    You find yourself in the family way
    Give the kid more than what you got in your day

    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty

    And
    Never let a clock tell you what you got time for
    It only goes around, goes around, goes around
    Take your family name for your own great sins
    'Cause each day is where it all begins

    And
    Don't give up too quick
    You only get one line, you better make it stick
    If we give ourselves to every breath
    Then we're all in the running for a hero's death

    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty
    Life ain't always empty

    That was the year of the sneer now the real thing's here Writer/s: Carlos Ramos O'Connell, Conor Patrick Curley, Conor Patrick Deegan, Grian Alexander Chatten, Thomas Patrick Coll
