  • I say goodnight to an empty space beside me
    The only reply is the beat of my heart
    I wake up and I make two black cups of coffee
    The routine being with you taught me left its mark
    These old, old habits die hard

    I get in the car and turn the radio on
    Expecting you to sing along but you never start
    It's a lonely road and I can't see where it ends
    Where I'm goin' and where we've been are so far apart
    These old, old habits die hard

    I said goodbye when you let go
    Still I hold on to all I've known
    Wherever I am there you are
    'Cause old, old habits die hard

    These four walls are slowly closing in around me
    Without your light I'm here drowning in the dark
    I pick up the phone then I come straight to my senses
    I know the consequences of going that far
    Old, old habits die hard

    I said goodbye when you let go
    Still I hold on to all I've known
    Wherever I am there you are
    These old, old habits die hard

    I say goodnight to an empty space beside me
    The only reply is the beat of my heart Writer/s: ADAM HAMBRICK, BRIAN DEAN MAHER, JOSH HOGE
