Empty Spirits

Album: Greetings From California (2014)
  • Scanning the bar, just empty spirits
    Turn to say "Hi!" nobody hears it
    Terrible lights, but they got good music here

    Feeling so strange from a night with a stranger
    Bent a few rules but never found danger
    Missing the nights when we used to sit right here

    I'm still waiting, same old playlist
    I can't take this song
    When lilac wine comes on
    I lose it, damn this music
    What's that feeling gone?
    When lilac wine comes on

    The first time we met, I still remember
    You sitting alone one night in December
    But it wasn't cold, cuz they got good weather here

    So we drove downtown to a place we had heard of
    Waited in line, even though it was empty
    You said it's a dive, but they play good music here

    I'm still waiting, same old playlist
    I can't take this song
    When ilac wine comes on
    I lose it, damn this music
    Was that feeling gone?
    When lilac wine comes on, comes on

    I'm still waiting, same old playlist
    I can't take this song
    When lilac wine comes on
    I lose it, damn this music
    Was that feeling gone?
    When lilac wine comes on
    Comes on, comes on Writer/s: JOEL MADDEN, BENJI MADDEN, ROSS GOLAN, WES LANG
