Jelly Roll – Empty House Lyrics

My soul is haunted
My heart is stolen
You cannot break what’s already broken
I cannot get back time that I borrowed
Life is too short to fill all of the sorrow

I’m in this empty house
I’m not the only one that’s here
Me and the spirits now
And the walls are closing in
I prayed for peace before, all I know is war
I have battled the voices within
Angels I used to know, had to let them go
Now they visit when fear is in the air

My innocence taken, tried to replaced it
Chasing the same things that left me jaded
Must have mistaken my courage for bravery
Wasn’t prepared for the turmoil and hatred
Where will you turn when your conscience is calling your name?
Memories burn
I just watch as they go up in flames

I’m in this empty house
I’m not the only one that’s here
Me and the spirits now
And the walls are closing in
I prayed for peace before, all I know is war
I have battled the voices within
Angels I used to know, had to let them go
Now they visit when fear is in the air

When I’m lonely I don’t feel alone
I can’t let go, darkness is holding on
Almost down before, what I’m fighting for, is the chance that I finally change, I need peace
It’s so hard when my sins keep chasing me

I’m in this empty house
I’m not the only one that’s here
Me and the spirits now
And the walls are closing in
I prayed for peace before, all I know is war
I have battled the voices within
Angels I used to know, had to let them go
Now they visit when fear is in the air
