​Empty Box

This song is by Morphine and appears on the album Like Swimming (1997).

Tore open a package, it was an empty box
No meaning to me, just an empty box
Sender was a woman
Sender was a woman
She said she's sending me everything that I, I, I never gave her before
She said "Fill it up and send it back"
Fill it up and send it back

So I send her back an empty box
A big mistake, sent back an empty box
Half in the shadows, half in the husky moonlight
And half insane, just a sound

I crossed into a valley, a valley so dark
That when I look back I can't see where I begin
I can't see my hands
I don't even know if my eyes are open
In the morning I was by the sea
And I swam out as far as I could swim
Until I was too tired to swim anymore
And then I floated and tried to get my strength back
And then an empty box came floating by
An empty box and I crawled inside

Half in the shadows, half in the husky moonlight
And half insane, just a sound in the night
Half in the shadows, half in the husky moonlight
And half insane, just a sound
