lyrics

empty pockets
but tonight i fill you up till you can see the ocean swimming
in the bottom of your cup
empty pockets
traded all i had for truth
stronger in the moment now
i've nothing left to loose
empty pockets
not a dollar to my name
o darling i would stretch my soul
to shelter you from pain

and in the dance they move
locked in the groove
like they're sharing just one mind
never-mind the rain
they're on another plane
i swear it's like a natural high
the vibe and rhyme
stronger than wine
kinder than the kindest kind
everyone feel fine
stepping in time
everything is gonna be alright

empty pockets
and i'm miles away from home
safe for the fire in my heart
to warm these aching bones
empty pockets
lord i wish i had a dime
so i could call to say i thank you
and that i'm doing fine
sweet and tragic
high's and lows and in-betweens
i don't know how you painted it
but i know just what it means

when in the dance they move
locked in the groove
like they're sharing just one mind
never-mind the rain
they're on another plane
i swear it's like a natural high
the vibe and rhyme
stronger than wine
kinder than the kindest kind
everyone feel fine
stepping in time
everything is gonna be alright
