​Half Empty Jam

This song is by Marillion and appears on the album Happiness Is the Road (2008).

I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full.
I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full.
I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full.
I'm half full, I'm half full, I'm half full.
I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full.
I'm half full, I'm half full
You woke me up.

I woke up in a city that doesn't sleep,
Woke up in a city by the sea.
I woke up in a city full of rain,
I nodded off, you woke me up again.

I woke up in a village full of stone,
I woke up, someone had taken everything I own.
The stone looked on and didn't care,
But all I really needed was someone to say "there there...
There there, there there..."

You woke me up,
You brought me round,
You picked me up when I was down,
You said "stand clear,"
Hit me with the probes,
And you exploded in my lungs -
And I woke up.
I woke up.

I've been asleep for twenty years,
Been doing a crawl in a pool of someone else's tears.

I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full...

I went to bed, too tired to cope -
And I was gradually losing hope.
But angels come to you when all is lost,
In golden light at dead of night,
Golden light at dead of night.

An angel's voice on the telephone -
Come to whisper "Take me home..."
I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full.
I used to be half empty,
But now I'm half full!

And I woke up in a city full of snow, full of snow -
And history and beauty and Christmas-lights and cold.
And I saw your hair freezing, your eyelashes too,
And I never saw anything as beautiful as you -

Till I woke up.

Well, I used to be half-empty
But now I'm half-full.
I used to be half-empty
But now I'm half-full.

Half empty
Half empty ...
And half full
Half full ...
